We have our backups set to use any of 14 virtual drives. Always have. So when a copy uses some of the drives and tape drives (for example VLS drives 10 and 11 and LTO drives 3 and 4), a backup that is set to use any drive 1-14 can pick ANY number that is open. TODAY the software is giving the false alarm:
[Critical] From: BMA@sapbck.ssmhc.com "HP:Ultrium 3-SCSI_10_sapbck" Time: 2/8/2016 5:56:09 PM
[90:63] => UMA@sapbck.ssmhc.com@/dev/rchgr/autoch1
Cannot load exchanger medium (Target drive is busy.)
Duh! it is being used and the backup can choose from 12 other drives! And it does BUT I get the error now. How do I stop DP 8.1 from a false alarm on EVERY backup! About the ONLY change that was made was the server the CM is on got bounced.
