Maybe somebody can help me,
I have a win2k server, that I back up nightly, at the moment I do this
manually, i.e. I go down to the machine and I put the correct tape in and
then I open up the back up software and tell it what to back up and what
tape to use, etc.
This is a pain, what I would like to do is come in in the morning and swap
tapes and then for the back up to run automatically at night.
However getting to grips with unattended backups is 'doing my head in'.
I understand about the scheduler and creating a job, etc. What I don't
understand is the media itself.
At the minute I only use three tapes, they are called tape1, tape2 and
tape3. if I go to the machine in the morning and put tape1 in and then go
back at night to do the back up I select the backup destination as being 4mm
DDS and the media as being tape1, then when I click on back up it says that
the media cannot be found, but if I eject it and then put it back in and
perform the steps over again it works fine? why is this?
So if I was to schedule backups it would do the same thing, surely, so how
do I prepare the media?
