Veeam is a fantastic tool but there are days when it drives me insane with its "logic" !!!
For whatever reason, it didn't want to continue the yearly backup to the yearly media set so I added a "blank" (previously used in BExec) tape on Friday.
It didn't like this tape for some reason, producing the following cryptic error:
29/01/2017 19:02:16 :: Library locations are out of sync, please run the inventory. Tried to load tape IO4105L6 into the drive, but IO4105L6 was loaded instead.
So, even though the error made no sense I erased the tape anyway and have re-run the job.
Now the job has decided to use THIS tape as the continuing monthly media set (which is set to append, and which has the last tape still available with 1.9Tb free!) so when it gets to the outstanding yearly data (next in the list) it won't have a fresh tape for it to write to the Yearly media set, again, and with this being a remote site I cannot get another blank tape to it!!!
I really wish it would have just carried on in the first place with the MONTHLY tasks that it COULD complete and queued the Yearly task to the end so on a retry, only the yearly task needs to be completed?
[New Sig: PLEASE get GFS tape support for incrementals!!!]
