Tape is not vaulting

Created: 21 Jan 2013 • Updated: 21 Jan 2013 | 5 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have a vault job that runs for my monthy tapes to move them to a new volume group and then allow for a defferred eject.  3 tapes where used in my monthly job and 1 of them will not show up in the eject screen.  I have ran the vault job several times and it will not pick it up.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what could be going on or possibly a way for me to manually vault this tape.  thanks.
