Restoring over spanned tapes.

Created: 28 May 2009 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 2 comments

I am trying to restore information (fmv) on LTO2 tapes in my LTO4 tape drive.  We initially ran into problems with the tapes restoring at all, but have no resolved that issue.  The issue we are experiencing now is when restoring a mission that has spanned more than one tape the drive errors out.  We are using Backup exec 12 with up to date drivers and a HP Storage works MSL6000 tape drive.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

What error are you getting when the spanned restore fails?  What are "fmv" and "mission"?

If you find this is a solution for the thread, please mark it as such.

I have the same issue.  When I catalog the tape, it does a ctalog of both tapes fine, but when I try to select the files to restore, it says that the second tape is missing and it won't let me select any files to restore.
