Tape Media Frozen
I hit the problem when using tape drivers come with windows server 2008 R2 and server attached the physical tape drive of IBM LTO4. The media label will not update when inserted the tape into the tape drive. Therefore, i can view the media label is the previous inserted tape through device monitor.
As an result, netbackup show the incorrect media label and freeze the tape after backup. It caused the tape cannot backup on next time. However, it is not happend on windows server 2003. In windows 2003 i have to install ibm tape driver [ for example IBMTape.x64_6209.zip and IBMTape.x86_6203.zip]
Anyone experience this problem and has a solution ?
