Our Exchange backup program (ARCserve 6.5) hung while backing up the IS,
prompting for a new tape. This resulted in an abnormal accumulation of
transaction logfiles. Originally I did not know what the problem was, and
stopped and restarted all services to clear. It was during this time that
the event log messages appeared.
I did search the MSKB, but was not able to find ANY references to the
message, so your pointer is most welcome.
For information sake, we are running MSE 5.5 SP2 on NT 4.0 SP3.
Ideally it would be appreciated if ARCserve can either alert or e-mail if it
needs a tape change. Right now it just pops up a dialog, which can go
un-noticed. We were just "fortunate" that it was backing up the IS when it
ran out tape. Sigh.
