Unable to append job to tape
I have recently taken an archive backup on a tape that is not intended to be re-used. This worked without any problem. There is some more one-time use data that I need to add to this tape. I moved the tape into a Media Set that would allow me to append new data, but the job failed because appendable media was not available.
I checked the amount of data to be backed up and found that it exceeded the remaining capacity of the tape, so I reduced the selection to an amount well within the remaining capacity. Unfortunately, I got the same error. So I move the archive tape to the scratch media set...and still got the same error.
I know I could use another tape, but I really need to get the data onto this one, and anyway, some thing this simple shouldn't be this difficult, surely.
