I am using one LTO-5 Tape for backup and media ID is A00126 and backup is stored on this tape too.
But everytime, after some days media ID is changed automatically.
How do I solve this problem, Please Suggest.
Thanks & Regards,
When you are not using bar code labels, the media ID of a used tape should not change unless you run a "label" job. I suspect that you are having some hardware or cartridge issues that make BE think this is a new tape. In that case the media ID would increment sequentially.
suggestions: Clean the tape drive. Try another cartridge. Check your hard & soft error counts for the tape drive and the media. Run vendor diagnostics on the tape drive.
