I have a backup to tape job set to only process Full backups for a set of machines. I set the job to run on Monday, well after the Full synthetics are completed over the weekend.
Today, the tape job filled one tape, then failed after waiting for a tape and not taking a Free tape (case open). Now that there are Free tapes, I need to re-run the job to get those Full backups to tape. When I run it, it does not process all of the listed machines, and I get the 0 directories 0 files problem.
I need to fully rerun this job to make a consistent tape set. How can I make the tape job do what's intended?
Ultimately, why do jobs report success when they have not succeeded?
