File library error

Hi,

 

I have a file library which has a repository made up of ten logical disks.  One of these disks is full and the others all have a lot of space.  When I try and start a backup to this library it always attempts to choose the full disk as a destination and fails with the error, "Cannot open device (Medium shadow file of distributed medium format is missing.)" after attempting to load an existing virtual tape.

 

The full text of the session is:

Can anyone explain what's happening?

 

Many thanks,
