Really really annoying behavior with the tape system.
Lets say I do a full on Friday, those get pushed to tapes immediately when it's done. Sysadmin reboots the computer (was told not to) on Sunday morning, now Veeam wants to repush the fulls that are already on tape! This was annoying in v7 (it would push all fulls available), but it's still annoying.
Why isn't Veeam keeping track of what is already on tape?

I am seeing something similar. I have a lot of backup jobs and a individual tape job for each backup job. I have bee fighting with this all week. I see the backup job run just fine. The tape job then runs and sends everything it can find to tape. Every full, incremental and reverse incremental in the job is sent to tape. It take a very long time. After the tape out finishes successfully I then let the next nights incremental run and the tape out grabs a tone of files that it just processed the night before and tapes those out again. I noticed this was happening in v7 previously but it seems to have gone haywire in v8.
I am going to try and get all my tapes caught up this weekend and if I still see the issue on Monday I will open a ticket.
