My supportcase : 00836137
I run Veeam B&R V 9.5, update 220.127.116.118.
I have a little problem for detecting the tape in LTO from VEEAM. The copy on tape is done every night, then the tape is automatically ejected.
I want to make a powershell script which detects if the tape is inside or not, and the name of medium. But a have discover that when we change, on the morning, the tape and introduce the next, VEEAM do not detect the new tape. So it's impossible to know that the tape is inserted.
Actually i have a tape in HP LTO 5, i changed it at 9h30, and VEEAM system shows me no tape, no medium (status "empty"), and at 12H00 or 16H00 it is the same.. "empty".
However, it seems that the tape is detected correctly on the night cause my job runs at 00h00, and it runs without errors... so how is it possible for veeam B&R to save on a tape that is not detected by the software all along the day ?
Can i have a way to force veeam to detect the new tape ? I have tried to stop and start the "VEEAM TAPE ACCESS SERVICE" but it is inoperant. I heard about a job "tape librairies discovery", is it possible to force it at a specific hour ?
I notice that, after inserting the tape on morning, if we eject manually the tape and then re introduce the tape, veeam seems to detect correctly the new tape.. but it is not logical and not a solution.
Thank's for your response.
