I was wondering if anyone else has a problem with reusing a used media with Veeam 18.104.22.1681?
The steps that I had taken to try and reuse an HP LTO6 Tape was.
- Ensure the media set for the tape had expired.
- Inventory the tape
- Ran a short erase on the tape.
- I then Mark the tape as free and left it in the correct media pool.
- Next I attempt to run a backup to tape job that corresponds to the same media pool.
When the job starts it prompts the following message.
- Code: Select all
Insert a valid tape into the library HP Ultrium 6-SCSI (XXXXX), oldest retained tape: XXXXXXL5, last written tape: XXXXXXL5. This issue has happen to me so far twice and I cant see to figure why.
Now I have tried using long erase and "the insert a valid tape" had also occurred, but it was after two jobs were actually written to a re-use media.
