Needs Media? Why?

Recommended Posts

 

Hi

 

I'm trying to get 8.2 (399) to work with my backup tape DLT-V4 (Sata) and it backs up the files to tape ok first time, but when it runs the next day (daily backup) it asks for media.

 

There is 50% of the tape still free.

 

I am trying to use the same tape to update every day and then change at the end of the week.

 

Unfortunately I cannot get it to use the same tape, as it states it is already in use by another media set!?

 

Any tips would be appreciated?

 

Thanks

When you set up your schedule and script did you make sure to select "no media action" option?

 

Also you might want to set separate schedules for your daily backups and the backups you do at the end of the week.

HI there

 

Thanks for the response.

 

Yes, it is setup as no media action, which is what is confusing me. Shouldn't that just add to the existing data what has changed since the last backup?

 

It doesn't seem to do what the manual says it should ...

 

Regards

There are some other threads on the board here with other issues regarding "media already in use" problems. Seems to be a bug. No obvious workarounds yet.

Ok, seems I searched for the wrong thing.

 

I see what you mean, it does seem to be a common error.

 

Hopefully this key bug will be squashed soon.

 

Is there a 8.3 beta yet?
