Hello I have a problem with Retrospect, it constantly forgets the name of some tapes. As the tape in slot # 4 (in attachment), this is named 85-done_bandarkiv, which is visible as soon as it is moved into the drive. Although the tape in the drive is forgotten as soon as it ends up back in the library. The problem starts when you have two tapes that are forgotten and will restore files and the right tape is missing from the library. Then it becomes an infinite loop, where it reads a (unknowm) tape, moving it back to library and forget the name of the tape ..... therefore takes the next tape and then the same tape again ...... How can we solve this? We also have several older tapes that have damaged barcodes, is it possible to replace them with new barcodes? Is it what the tape is named or barcode that determines which tape is which in the backup set? With the above problem, it feels like that's what the tape called that determines this? Right or wrong?
I accidentally used "Clear Barcodes" (see Retrospect 9 User's Guide, page 62). Retrospect now ignores the bar codes associated with these LTO-4 tapes. Does anyone now how I get Retrospect 9.0.1 to recognise the barcodes associated with these tapes? HP StorageWork MSL4048 Tape Library (48-slot) Sam Melbourne, Australia
