I have a backup to Tape job setup that has been working well. However, since Monday any tape that is inserted into the drive to commence backup gets ejected and tape then appears in the Protected folder. Media Pool Retention Policy is set to 'Do Not Protect'.
Selecting a tape in the protected folder shows the Protection tick as OFF. Any tape I add just gets ejected and put in Protected folder with no obvious means to move out.
Ejected tape shows following message:
- Code: Select all
17/06/2015 05:01:28 :: Insert a valid tape into the library, oldest retained tape: May 2015 1, last written tape: Friday.
I do have a End of Month VAULT setup, for archiving purposes (currently has May 2015 1 + 2).
I assumed, as I have 'Do Not Protect' on the media pool, any tape could be used, apart from ones held in Vault (end of month)? I have them labelled Mon-Fri and always go in sequence but I'm wondering if the Vault setup could be causing the issue?
Thanks for any help offered.
