I installed backup exec 2010, setup the remote agents, configured a backup job - and everything is working great. The only problem is that i cannot get any media to work. I guess i just need a step by step.
Heres what i have:
-Windows Storage Server 2003 SP2
-All my tapes were used in Yosemite backup.
-The tapes are LTO-2, and its a Certance Ultrium 2 drive.
-The long-erase, retention, format, partition, commands are all greyed out.
Heres what i tried:
-I tried inventory, i tried catalog. It appears as unusable, unknown media. The catalog function keeps prompting me to insert tape '?'.
- I check the forums and have ensured the removable storage service is stopped and disabled.
- I've rebooted since install
Basically, im lost. I can't format a tape, i can't erase a tape, and i cant use these tapes. So im dead in the water.
Everythings great with the application, except - i cant see my media!
Any assistance would be great, im pulling whats left of my hair out here.
