Using the Set-BEStorageDevicePool command
I'm a fairly new network administrator and need some help with a little problem I ran into.
I have a storage pool with 3 drives of varying sizes in it. One of the drive (a 2TB) is now full and my backup jobs are left hanging instead of being sent to a disk with available space.
All of these jobs are pointed to the storage pool but for whatever reason the drives with enough space are not selected to be used.
After some research I've learned a bit about how the application selects a backup disk. It looks like you can change the priority to select disks with the most space instead of just selecting the first disk. The only way to change this setting is by using the Backup Exec Management CLI which I'm not too familiar with.
Additionally, I think command to make this change is Set-BEStorageDevicePool command. After attempting to use it I chickened out, not wanting to mess-up the server.
Application: Backup Exec 2012 (service pack 4)
Name of my storage pool (in case it needs to be used in the command): Internal Pool
OS: Windows 2008 R2
All suggestions are welcomed!
