Drivers can't be used by other backup jobs



I have four drivers in tape library. I selected 4 drivers for a specification and set "max=1". But while the specification is running, other backup jobs can't use any driver.


I saw only one driver used in the specification, and other jobs says "waiting for devices". I want to know what's the problem.


Thank you.

Could be one of the following:

1. Insufficient drive licenses available / check omnicc -check_license
2. Insufficient media available for 4 devices / check pools configured for the devices

If this does not help, provide omnidbutil -show_locked_devs while the backup is running and screenshots of pools and backup spec.
