Backupset "losing" it's member

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I've created tape backup set with two tapes as members. Then after backup some data to this backupset, the second tape is no longer member of backupset! In "Backup set properties" the backupset contains only one tape. In "Devices" I can see the second tape with the letter "M" gray instead of black (as a regular member). This behaviour is repeatable.

What could be the cause of this? Is it a bug or am I missing something?

Best Regards

You are probably doing a recycle backup which will reset the media set and include only tapes that were used so if the second tape was not used it will not be listed as a member.

The only way to get the second added is to do incremental backups until the first tape is filled and the backup set needs a second at which point that tape will be added as a member to the backup set.

Yes, I'm doing recycle backup to my two-tapes backupset, so you must be right and everything is ok. I assume that the "gray member" (second tape) will become black just after the first tape get filled and Retrospect "switch" to second tape.

 

Thank you very much!

 

Best regards!
