I am trying to backup data at a secondary office to tape, because the primary office does not have a tape library. To that end, I setup a shared magnetic library that both Media Agents (Primary & Secondary office) can see, along with thier mount points. However, I am replicating my data via NetApp filers (snapmirror). The issue I am having is when my AUX job runs, it goes into a waiting state and tells me "Unable to get source MediaAgent. Media is not accessible from data path selected." From what it looks like, it's trying to connect to the MA in office 1 and backup from it's mount point instead of looking to the MA in office 2 and it's mount point.
Does anyone know if my setup will work, and what the possible cause might be? Or should I have setup Media Agent Replication to accomplish what I am trying to do?
So, what works is backing up the data from the client to magnetic disk share on a Netapp in office 1, then replicating that data between offices. What does not work is the AUX copy from the magnetic share on a Netapp in office 2 to tape.
Thanks in advance!
