Media consistency Failed


I have a problem with the media, I cannot format some tapes I receive errors and the same with the pools.

When I try to delete a Pool I receive an error: Internal error: DbaXXXX functions. 12:1201

I`ve checked the database with the below result.

There is a way to fix this?

Thank you!

Re: Media consistency Failed

It looks like you have DP 8


If you have not already done so, contact the respone center, and get a couple of SSPs (Site-Specific Patches) which fix quite a few problems with DP 8.0, including this one:


Media consistency -media_consistency Failed

Thanks for the answer, yes I have DP 8

I saw that there is patch released today DPWINBDL_00801.EXE, it`s a big one - 650MB

I will download it , make a backup, install it and we will see.

Wow, I didn't even know about this
