How to re-run GFS tape backup?

Post by Mapleuser » Jul 14, 2017 1:33 am

I have a active full disk backup on Friday and also a GFS tape backup on Friday that will store it with weekly retention period.
On Monday, I came in and saw that the active full backup failed due to some issue.
I re-ran the active full disk backup on Monday and it successfully completed on Wednesday.
When I try to re-run my GFS tape backup, it shows "no new restore points"

I've verified the GFS tape backup is pointing to the correct disk backup job.
How do I coax it to re-run?

Tape GFS job retries every hour in a case of failure.
I.e. if the job failed to copy backups at 2:11pm, it will retry at 3pm, then at 4pm etc until the end of the day. Did all retries fail?
To create a weekly restore points, you can right-click on the backup to tape job and make it run weekly full backup.
