Ivo Posted June 14, 2002 Report Share Posted June 14, 2002 Hi Situation: Windows 2000 Server, with 2 ADR 50GB Onstream drives Backing up 40GB data (30GB fits on one tape, no hammering about this see also http://www.dantz.com/index.php3?SCREEN=knowledgebase_article&id=459) Backupset's name: Backup Type of backup: Recycle Name of tapes: 1-Backup (all tapes, this is possible because of the recycle job) Task: Backup 40GB data on 2 tapes unattendend each day of the week. Should it work?: Yes, see this http://www.dantz.com/index.php3?SCREEN=knowledgebase_article&id=32 Problem: Retrospect asks for 2-Backup to proceed after tape 1 is full. When selecting the second tape (doesn't mater is this is called 1-Backup OR 2-Backup) Retrospect will continue. But this has to be done automaticly. Where I believe the problem lies: Retrospects sees both drives, but the backupset can only backup to 'tape' (so for the backupset there is no diverence). There is the problem, if I have a tape in drive 1 and start backuping Retrospect starts, but also when the tape is in drive 2. So it always starts but when tape 1 is full it doesn't continue to tape 2 Solution I would prefer: Tell me what to change so that tape 2 is automaticly selected and backup runs smooth Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
