Im writing for a problem with my company tape storage.
We have one tape library used with Veeam Backup 9.0
The library is simple, only two magazines, each one with 12 slots ( 11 tapes + 1 clear tape ), generally during tapes following your guide, once all tapes are recognized we mark all as "free" and after we assigne the own production pool.
Each backup job is scheduled as one to week.
And generally after the tapes changing the situation works fine for some weeks.
After Veeam ask me to insert a valid tape
, although still there various tape almost empty ( es. 2.1 or 1.9 or 1.4TB free to 2.3 of total capacity ).When the total size of job result to be 1.8TB
, so the major parts of these tapes should be sufficient.So, why Veem continue to ask me to insert a valid tapes when still there almost free tapes ???
