ntbackup / removable storage

By qb4006 ·
I'm using the backup utility (& removable storage)that
comes with Win 2000 Server to run a backup job to a DLT
tape. The tape ran out of space which generated a message
saying " add media to the free media pool" When I eject
the current tape and add a blank tape to free media the
system sees the tape but the backup job doesn't continue
to backup files.

Whats crazy is that the backup job is listed as "running"
in TASKS but nothing is happeing with the tape - its just
sitting there. How can I get the backup job to continue to
put files on the tape??????

Any Tape you want use for native backup,you will need to prepare your tapes prior to backup.After first tape when request for free media,insert nt prepared media and should continue.Hope this helps
