Re: Alert: Insert Compatible Media

Not sure the message is in Spanish. But maybe you set up pool with wrong media? When you go to the "Devices&Media" pull down menu, then expand "pools". And then you go the the general tab of the pool you are using, what does it show for the "Standard Media type..."?

Re: Alert: Insert Compatible Media

There's so many things that can cause this message...

You may have a situation where all the tapes in the library is 'reserved' and cannot be written to(Full, the backup set is set to be protected for a specific amount of time), the drive can't read the type off of the physical media... It's bl**dy trying to use the cleaning tape... (Bad memory... BackupExec and a MSL2024... )

Does HP L&TT give it a clean bill of health?
