Error with jobs start a day and ends another one

Hi All,
I need help with NetBackUp 6.0. I have a job that start on 22:00 with multiplexing 4, the backup time is around 4 hours, after 00:00 the job finish because the media is unavailable. I don't have scratch pool.
Thanks.

  • When you say the jobs finishes because no media is available are you getting a status code 96?  Do you have available media in the volume pool that you are using for the policy?
  • Thanks for answering! Yes, the status code is 96. The volume pool have a available media.
  • that the tapes were inventoried correctly?  Do you have the correct barcode rules set up for these tapes?  Also make sure the tapes you have are not frozen or suspended.
