Thread: Why won't my dupe job use the media pool I told it to?

  1. Why won't my dupe job use the media pool I told it to?

    I've got two backup jobs.

    One for nightly incrementals.
    It then runs a duplicate job to tape that specifies a particular pool of
    tapes to use.

    That works fine.

    I have another "full" job that runs once/week. That works fine
    The "duplicate" job when I created it, I told it to use a particular
    media pool (and there are two tapes in that pool)

    But, after I saved the job and wait for it to run it fails on the
    duplicate saying it couldn't find any tapes.

    I go to the duplicate job and it's set to use the Default pool. I click
    the pulldown and set it BACK to what I originally told it to. Save the
    job.

    Wait a few minutes, go BACK into it and it's reverted BACK to default
    again (no wonder why it didn't find any tapes as there aren't any
    assigned to Default).

    What gives?

    I don't know if it will ever work right on 9.1. I gave up trying on
    9.1. 9.2 works a lot better, but still occasionally has issues where
    the duplication job gets disassociated with the backup job.
