A tape is loaded, but Veeam B&R puts it in the "Unrecognized" media pool and so the backup to tape job wont start.

- put a tape in the drive
- start manual inventory of loaded tape
- give a name to this tape (for example "Monday 1" etc.)
- mark the tape as free
- move the tape to the custom media pool
In other forum posts i read that the only real solution is to erase the tapes, if they were used by any other backup software before (e.g. Backup Exec) and than reuse it normal in Veeam.
I'm not the PowerShell Pro, so i wasn't able to create a script wich actually worked.

Veeam does not recognize that a certain tape is in the library. They are discovered by name and are in the right media pool, but when ever my backup job requests a new certain tape, it waits forever.
The tape has the "Expired" status, but is not used until I explicitly mark it as "Free". Then it is used immediately.
The tapes have never be used outside of Veeam.
