NtBackup error when backing up automatically backing upSIMS
I am running into an issue with regards to our backup of the SIMS DB.
We have just had it moved over to a new server with a new tape drive (actually an old server and an old tape drive but new to SIMS) and i am now experiencing problems when the automated process is starting at 11pm.
The system that the secretary has set up is the daily and weekly rotation of four tapes and one for each day.
The backup is failing however and i manually have to intervene. Although this does not work right away. I have to manually free up the tape and deallocate before the backup will run. I have looked at the Server 2000 issue with tape back up and RSM and am wondering if it is an issue with 2003 as well.
The error is "Cannot locate the specified media or backup device. This backup operation will terminate."
Anyone got any pointers?
I did not set up the scheduled backup operation. Mark came in to do it from Broadband Sandwell so i am unsure as to what he has configured.
