  • Keep using the same mounted tape?
    Posted: 03-04-2019, 10:34 AM

    Hi there,

    For every job I run, CV is unmounting the tape inside my library drive and reloading a new one.

    Even when I'm targeting the same Scratch Pool.

    As an example:

    - I run a backup for a subclient for the first time, with Scratch Pool 1; CV will load Tape 1

    - After the job completes, Tape 1 is still inside the drive

    - I run a new backup for the same subclient; CV will unload Tape 1 and load Tape 2, alpso from Scratch Pool 1.

    Any ideia why this happens?

    I think you have to disable the option "Start New Media" under Advance properties of Schedule policy as shown below.

    I do have that setting, but still it unmounts and remounts a different tape every time.

    If you do a Properties View of these 2 Tape Media in the Commcell Console, there is a Stream ID listed on them. What is the Stream ID # listed? This will be a number.
