Thread: want to review contents of tape during a job

  1. want to review contents of tape during a job

    I have a conundrum. I'm in the middle of a full backup job that takes two
    tapes due to the size of the backup. Problem is, I've run out of tapes and
    need to review the contents of old media sets so I can use those. There
    doesn't seem to be a way to catalog a tape while a backup job is running.
    IOW, I would like to pause the backup job (while it is prompting me to
    insert an overwritable media) insert another tape, inventory and catalog
    that tape to make sure I can overwrite it, relabel that tape, and continue
    the backup job. Instead, it kicks the other tape out before I can do
    anything (the catalog job is queued anyway) and keeps asking for new media.

    Is there a way I can do this?

    TIA,

    look in your Restore Selections tab for the Media Name (change to Media View
    if you are looking at Volume View by right clicking All Volumes at the top
    of the left window....then see if you can check it out that way)
