continuity of Backup

Jump to solution
hello,
I have good quality medias in the pool ,Data Protector 5.1 starts a backup task with a good quality media, but if this media changes to poor quality by some reason, Data Protector doesn´t use the next good media avalaible. I don´t understand why DP cancel backup task and not use next good media...is there any configuration in DP to do ? in purpose that the backup unload the poor media and use the next good media.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi,

If DP encounters media problems, DP can't just continue using next media. The data on the first media is not reliable. In that case, the backup should be restarted.

Restarting failed objects has to be done manually, there is no automatic option. I belive the reson is that automatic restarting may cause to much queuing and, perhaps timeouts.
