this is a notice for Veeam users with HP MSL 2024 (and other similar).
For this library (as other) there aren't MPIO driver.
In this case Veeam is not able to manage "MPIO" -or- "PATH" by sofware.
If you sometimes receive this:
- Code: Select all
[12.07.2015 04:48:06] <01> Error Failed to continue tape backup session on the next tape medium (Veeam.Backup.Common.FailedToContinueBackupException)
[12.07.2015 04:48:06] <01> Error Object reference not set to an instance of an object. (System.NullReferenceException)
the only solution is "disable/disconnect" one path also if this is not a good solution for HA/redundancy infrastucture.
Here a official reply from the support
Yes, it is correct - Veeam is not able to manage/support MPIO by the software yet, however it will be fixed in future releases.
The only workaround now is to disable one path.
Sorry for inconvenience.
This is strange but I have never seen anything implemented by Veeam about reports and problems
