Thread: Two tapes, one job

  1. Two tapes, one job


    Can anyone help me? I am trying to do a full backup on a server and the amount
    of data is greater than one 50 gig tape which is what I am using. I have
    tried doing this two or three times now and I get 2 different types of problems.
    First, I will be asked to put in a second tape but, the job refuses to recognize
    this tape or I may just get a "backup job failed" message. Can anyone tell
    me how to set up a backup that will allow me remove the first tape and insert
    a second to finish the job? I have been "messing" with this thing for too
    long. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
