This issue has been solved. See solution.


 One of my backup job is in queued as existing media is full and i want to use second media with same media set which has space. I have only single drive but after importing second media unable to perform any operation on this media, want to know is there any tech note can provide details what kind of second media should be used with queued backup.

The second and subsequent media must be overwritable.  You cannot append to the second or subsequent media.  I am not aware of any TN that covers this or whether it is documented in the Admin Guide, but it has been this way since forever.
