Howdy, all - Running B&R version 9 U1 have a tape job that is backing up three repositories. The backup target is a 2 drive library with a media pool configured for parallel processing. I am backing up 3 repositories on a nightly basis. I have tried to align the tape job to kick off when the last backup to disk finishes but I am experiencing difficulty with this, unfortunately, as the timing continues to fluctuate. The problem I am encountering is that if the tape job kicks off before the backup to disk job completes it will encounter as "some backup files are locked by running jobs, retry is required" and put it in a pending state. No biggie, right? well, B&R doesn't seem to do a retry until ALL other servers/jobs in the tape job complete, then it goes back and does a retry and finishes up the backup. This leaves an empty tape drive sitting for well over 6-8 hours that could be backing this up as soon as the backup to disk finishes. As an FYI, I cannot link this job to begin when the backup to disk job completes based on the fact that I don't want to run every day that the backup to disk job runs.
Any thoughts as to how to get B&R to retry more frequently?
