Tape rescan won't continue with next tape
I have recently started making replication backups to tapes (which contained some previously made full backups of a complete machine). Have backed up the same machine to HD storage location with some full and some incremental backups (default Acronis setup) and than replicated it (complete full and incremental ones) onto 2 tapes (TAPE 001 and TAPE 004 ) on two separate occasions with the same task.
TAPE 001 was accidentally moved to free pool and so I went to rescan the tape to restore everything that was backed up previously. Upon finishing 75% of the task I was asked to insert TAPE 004. (why are the 2 tapes connected ? -because the replication backups are considered one integral, not separate fulls ) I ejected TAPE 001 with button on the drive and inserted TAPE 004 and pressed retry but the task would not continue still asking for TAPE 004.
Went to rescan TAPE 004 and than after a while it asked for TAPE 001. Have not yet inserted it to verify that it won't continue as was the case with TAPE 001 rescan and TAPE 004 continuation but I suspect it will be the same.
Why is it that rescan task would not recognize that other tape was inserted and continue. I have done inventorying of both tapes but it didn't help. How can I recover the content of the tapes?
After TAPE 004 rescan same thing happens. It asks for TAPE 001 and doesn't recognize it being inserted. Why doesn't the application eject the tape by itself when asking for the new one? Now it looks as if 1st tape is still present in the drive and I cannot force application to recognize insertion of the new one.
