We are using a shared tape library which is connected by FC onto a switch and Veeam and Backup Exec are 2 nodes who are access them.
When 1 of the 2 nodes are writting (or reading) to tape the library has been locked. Backup Exec knowns that and wait until the lock of the library has been gone.
With Veeam that isn't the case. Veeam (version
placed a lock to the tape library and tries to write but the library is busy with his job from Backup Exec.
So the job fails. Is there a possiblity that Veeam checks if there is a lock on the tape library and waits until the lock has been gone?
I had a support case (00818446) for this but the answer was that this was by design. Why there isn't a problem with Backup Exec?
Last thursday I was on NLVMUG and talked to Veeam engineer and he sa. Put this on the support forum and maybe 1 of the devel engineers is reading this.
