"Automatically reuse named media" recycle backup and multiple tapes (6.5)


Recommended Posts

I am using the A,B,C backup strategy where on the Friday, a recycle backup takes place. To avoid being asked for confirmation of the erasure that occurs in a recycle backup , I have checked the "Automatically reuse named media" option.

This has worked great up until now where disk usage has grown to the level where now I need multiple tapes (2) for a full backup.

This seems to break the "Automatically reuse named media".

When the recycle backup starts, it says please insert "1-Backup" or blank media.

Yet the tape named "1-Backup" is in the drive.

The recycle backup seems to be having problems recognising that the media has the correct name and that it should go ahead and erase it.
