HI team,


We are using Acronis cyber backup advanced 15.0 for our Tape backup.

The issue is the backup gets stuck after backing up 50 GB and gives interaction required error.

"Cannot find a free media in pool" . The tape is getting ejected automatically once it reaches 50 GB or 55 GB.

We are using LTO 7 tapes with 6TB native capacity. and we are backing up a server with 300 GB. we tried with different servers and same issue occurs.

Note: The tape we are using is erased tape and we move to free tape pool before backup.


Anyone have this issue please help

Hello IT Support DC,

I haven't found any known issues with the similar description in our internal sources. Best would be opening a support ticket, so that our engineers can investigate the issue and find the root cause. If you have already opened a ticket, would you mind sharing the outcome here for other users?
