Thread: Autochanger Job pending

  1. Autochanger Job pending

    I have a Compaq 12/24 BG DAT autoloader and BackupExec v8 rev 3315
    The autoloader is detected ok and it is under the autoloader tab. So far so
    good.
    I can define a backup job to use the device, OK. The problem is that when I
    try and run the Job it has the status of "PENDING".

    Is there anything else I should to get the autoloader working ?

    TIA .. Im realy stuck on this now :-(

    I think I am beginning to see a trend. There might be a general
    set of symptoms associated with having the Backup Exec "device
    database" corrupted. Look at tech note 194061 and see if it does
    any good. I am wondering if you defined some autoloader partitions
    and then made changes again.

    thanks for your reply Doug,

    I have not created any partitions. I will have a look at the tech note you
    suggested.

    Another thing that happens. If I submit a job to inventory the slot I get
    the following message
    "Invalid physical volume library changer identifier.
    User aborted a physical volume library operation"

    I can find allot of help on this on the Vertias site that refers to
    autoloaders
