SCDPM 2016 U4 "Job waiting for tape" on one tape recorder.

    Question

  • Hi all!

    We use SCDPM in our organisation and now start use tape for long backup with HPE LTO Ultrium-7 one tape recorder.

    We need backup 1 folder on server every week. There is no hard backup plan for week-month-year. Simple every week backup on tape for long time.

    After plan started, server backup half of data size and SCDPM need insert new tape.

    I can't find much information about tape backup for SCDPM for simple tape backup. Our scenario is real?

  • it was error in tape record in SCDPM or tape configuration by HPE LTFS Configuration utility.

    I deleted record about tape in SCDPM db, unformated tape by HPE software, added new tape record in SCDPM, rechoosed tape in backup plan and backups starts work properly!

  • Hello!

    How much data has been written to the tape for the backups that have succeeded so far? Also what is the capacity of your current tape(s)?

    Could you also provide screenshots of your current backup schedule / configuration?

    Best regards,
    Leon
