Could not find a valid recovery point on disk. Error 30126 (again) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I read through the article and I would just like clarification and I apologize if the answer is elsewhere, but I didn't find it. I have had the problem with several scheduled tape backups where the majority of machines in a protection group will be backed up to tape and succeed, but there are a few machines where the tape backup fails.  According to the article listed above, there is a mention of only one recovery point being written to tape.  Does this mean that if a tape backup job runs for a protection group  and succeeds, then one of the machines in the protection group is off for a week with no more recovery points created on disk, then when the next weekly tape backup runs, that one machine will fail because there are no new recovery points?  My weekly tape backups are set to expire after three weeks, so I have three sets of weekly tapes.  If that is the case, is there a way around this?  I would like my tape backup jobs to backup whatever the latest recovery point is on disk, whether it is the same recovery point that is already on another tape or not.  Thanks.
