Last week I was finally in a position to disable Backup Exec on our last backup server allowing the Tape library (HP MSL2024) to be owned/used exclusively by Veeam.
My plan now is to have the users insert the BExec daily tapes into the library as they expire and add them to a growing Veeam media pool instead, but the user has come along today to open the mail slot to insert the tape but the library is saying "Locked by host".
In BExec i'd just right-click the library and select "unlock" but there's no such feature in Veeam, so what's the correct unlocking process?
I tried via the web interface for the library (which would be a pain to have to keep using anyway) but it returns with:
"IR: library media removal prevented by host - Code: 46"
No tape jobs are running at all, last tape job completed >15hrs ago
I could spin up the BExec services again just to unlock the library but I'd rather know the correct/best process to follow!
[New Sig: PLEASE get GFS tape support for incrementals!!!]
