WaitingTape - which pool is the job waiting for?

Veeam Logoby pmansfield » Mon Aug 08, 2016 8:37 am

When Veeam runs out of tapes in a pool it's currently running a job in, the job changes to the 'WaitingTape' state, but I can't see where it says which pool it's waiting on a tape for.

I have a job which is set to use different pools for Full and Incremental backups, so when I get a 'WaitingTape' message I have to hunt around the UI to see exactly what's going on. Is the pool being waited on displayed somewhere and i haven't seen it?

If not, can I suggest it as feature request?

Excellent - thanks.

Could you also discuss the possibility of displaying which pool is currently being written to for active tape jobs?

You are welcome. Regarding the waiting tape, I thought that we need to correct the email notification report as well.

displaying which pool is currently being written to for active tape jobs?

May I ask why you need this information in status column?
