Status 96 - "Unable to allocate new media for backup"
We are receiving this error when trying to backup a policy to tape. I have verified that there is a valid tape in our robot that can be used and that it is in the correct volume pool, not frozen, etc. This tape does have data already written to it, but plenty of space still exist that can be used. When I run the backup I receive the status 96 error. I can add another tape to our Scratch pool and the job will grab the tape and execute correctly and backup. I need to find a solution so that multiple images can be backed up or duplicated to one tape in order to save tapes. Has anyone experienced this issue before or can help me out with what my be the problem?
