Afternoon, team. We have some weirdness w/ some of our tape jobs recently not firing right away, or even outright failing, because they think they have no available tapes/tape space to do Files to Tape. For instance a given job should run about 1.2TB and I have about 2.4TB spread across two tapes in a job's pool. The error I initially get is something like, "Insert valid tape, I was last working w/ tape #30." Well, tape #30 is in your assigned pool and has 2.0TB free on it. Feel free to help yourself. But it doesn't, it just sits there asking me to insert it. Fine, I cancel the job, and run an inventory on tape #30 to load it. It goes and picks up the tape, runs a successful inventory, and waits for my next order - while still having tape #30 loaded in the drive. Cool. Re-fire my job, "Insert valid tape, last written tape was #30." The one that's currently in the drive.
