I use Backup Exec 10.1 with a tape loader. Occasionally, a backup job produces more data than there are tapes in the machine. When this happens, BE says something like, "Please insert overwritable media using the import command". The trouble is, while a BE job is running it's not possible to open the tape loader door and pull out the magazine, so that I can add more tapes, even if BE isn't actually doing anything and is, in fact, asking me to insert more tapes. Catch-22!
Is there a solution to this? It seems like a really bizarre flaw in the system.
