multiplexed Posted August 1, 2009 Report Share Posted August 1, 2009 We have four backup sets, each with one tape member. For example â€¦ Backup Set 1, with tape member 1 Backup Set 2, with tape member 2 Backup Set 3, with tape member 3 Backup Set 4, with tape member 4 We rotate these backup sets once each week. Each week has one set. The first backup script is a Recycle. The rest of the week has Normal scripts. My problem is that, sometimes a backup set forgets its tape member. It seems to work correctly if we keep the right tape in the drive. However, say tape 1 is in the drive. Monday arrives, Set 2 (Recycle) is supposed to run, but tape 1 is still in the drive, not tape 2, so Monday Recycle does not run (is waiting). I arrive on Wednesday. Press â€œstop executionâ€ on all waiting tasks. At this point, Backup Set 2 forgets Tape Member 2. In Configure - Devices, the black M is grayed out. I have to manually re-add Tape 2 to the Backup Set 2. How do I get Retrospect to not forget its tape member when the wrong tape is in the drive, and I have to press â€œstop executionâ€ on all waiting tasks?
