Windows 2000 Backup Not working

By hanna.shannon ·
When you schedule a Windows 2000 unattended backup by using a standalone tape
drive (library), the first backup job completes successfully. However, after you
change the media, the next scheduled backup job does not back up the desired
folder andfiles. Also, you may receive one of the following error messages in
the backup report log file:

The operation was not performed because no unused media was available.

-or-

Operation was not performed, because the specified media cannot be found.

Windows 2000 Backup Not working

I have only played with the W2K backup a little but here is the problem I ran into. Even though you change out the tape for a blank you still have to tell the system that the tape is available as a scratch. I have not found a way to do this automatically (there might be, I just haven't had time to look) so you need to open the Removable Media manager (look in Manage Computer) and tell it to release/eject/export (sorry, can't think of the right word) the old tape and then load/inventory/import (sorry again) the new tape and move it into the scratch area.

Look over the Removable media management area carefully and it may make some sense to you.

Try scheduling a RSM REFRESH command before the scheduled backup.

"Magetower" was correct. You must export the drive slot before ejecting the tape, and then import and inventory the media after replacing the new tape.
