Hello, I've just rebuild our Tape Library Server (3.2 with latest
patches on Solaris 2.8) which acts as the media server also.
After getting Solaris & NetBackup reinstalled and performing
the apropriate robtests, then performing a
bprecover -r -d dlt -tpath /dev/rmt/0bn
sucessfully. Everything looks good. The old catalog database has been
restored from our Disaster recovery tape just fine, but once I try to
restore a file(s) to a client, I get the following error message after
attempting to restore a file. The restore just continues forever
untill I issue a bp.kill_all the day after.

The logs say this:


14:48:32 (6426.xxx) Restore job id 6426 will require 1 image.
14:48:32 (6426.xxx) Media id CIG010 is needed for the restore.
