after problems with tapes having same media_id* and single tape LTO drives veeam shows many mounted medias (after using the hardware edject button) we are using the option "Eject media once the job finishes". Most of our small business cutomers only change tapes and get job mails - no access to management interface.
But sometimes people forget changing the tape. After inserting a new Tape job starts - and the next job execution fails at night
-waiting for tape
OK we can stop the jop at the management interface and get a message :
"VM's files for this job will be left in the inkosistent state. One or more VMs have incomplete, unusable restore points. Stop the Job anyway?"
Sounds not really good to me - ok it stops the job. What exactly is the meening of inconsisting state, incomplete, unusable restore points? When job starts again it creates new restore points - or we are wrong.
We are missing a shedule option : A backup job not completed within a specific amount of time can be automatically canceled by a defined maximum time value.
Any hints - thanks!
