After upgrading from Veeam B&R 220.127.116.119 to 18.104.22.1684 I'm experiencing weird errors with backup to tape jobs.
All the (full) tape jobs failing with this error message:
- Code: Select all
Failed to start new tape backup session: StartSessionTape failed
Failed to prepare to start new tape session: StartSessionTape failed
Failed to prepare to start new tape session: StartSessionTape failed StartSessionTape failed Tape positioning error: An attempt to access data before the beginning-of-medium marker failed
I don't think this KB (https://www.veeam.com/kb2003) is matching my problem. I don't have this issue before and different tapes were used during the backup.
Another strange thing: data seems to be totally transferred on tape, the duration of the job is matching the size of data needs to be writed on tape. The job is failing at the end so I don't know if this is a true or false error.

Did somebody is facing the same problem?
