Does the catalog gets verified after writing? It would be nice to have an explanation about the actions Veeam takes to ensure data integrity... So at least i can tell the customer something...
According to Support 2 out of 4 Tapes are "empty".
Its an optional feature, because it takes significant additional time for the tape job.
During one of the remote sessions Veeam support marked all 4 tapes as free and started several catalog operations (none of them successful).
There must have been some sort of error (human/software) during the media set for that week and thats why there are 2 empty tapes now. I guess, there is no option to clarify what has happened.
is there an option to extend the retention for log files in veeam?
tape verification is mostly needed to check the media integrity to avoid the magnetic tape corruption
But if a tape is bad and Veeam doesn't notice this, its an issue because the tape backup is worthless then.
my last mail to the support case should contain all Barcodes
Like, in Data Portector you can "cataloge" and "Import" a Tape. "Catalog" Operation reads the catalog from tape. "Import" is a extensive operation (takes several hours) that reads everything(!) from tape and lists the data it has found.
