Error Code 96

Hi Guys,

The following problem has been observed while i was trying to take the backup. Inspite of scratch availability the backups are still failing with EC 96. The max mounts shows 0 and the mounts show 20. Is the reason why the backups are failing with EC 96. If yes, kindly help me out in resolving this issue.

 

Thanks in advance.

  • Have you checked for possible media hardware expiration date?

    Please show us output of the following command for one or two tapes in scratch pool that you feel should have been used:

    nbemmcmd -listmedia -mediaid <media-id> 

    Command is in <install-path>\veritas\netbackup\bin\admincmd
