  1. Retore job staying at 99%.


    When I try to restore files the job runs but it never finishes. It just stays
    at 99%. I am running BE 8.5 on a w2k sp2 server. I have tried redirecting
    restore to the backup server but this does not help. This problem has not
    happened before. Previous restore always worked fine. One time I get an
    error message saying that the dismount operation is pending, tthe attempt
    to dismount the media from drive 'compaq1' to slot 8 is pending due to the
    changer being reserved by another process. Please reply if this has happened
    to you.

    Thanks,

    How long do you wait for it to finish? Usually, when it's displaying 99%,
    it's rewinding the tape. The same applies to saves.

    Please refer to the following TechNote which is relevant to the issue you
    are facing :

    Note : also there is another link in the bottom of the TechNote.

    [informational alerts in Backup Exec for Windows NT and Windows 2000 version
    8.x.]
    http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/235873.htmHow to automatically respond
    to

    If the issue remains unresolved, then please try the same using the command
    line utility :
    To automatically remove the Informational Alerts, follow these steps:
    1. Copy the BEMCMD.EXE from the \winnt\utils directory the Backup Exec
    CDROM to the %systemroot% directory on the NT Server.
    2. In the Post command of the backup job add the following line: BEMCMD.EXE
    -o45

    This will clear out all the Informational Alerts the are created during
    or after the Backup job. This is very usefull when Incremental or Differential
    backup jobs complete without backing up any data in a backup set.

    NOTE: If a job has an alert that must be responded to, this command will
    not apply.
