Data Protector Express Single Server 4.0 SP1 Tape Media problem

I'm using a HP Ultrium 1840 Tape backup station and trying to run backup of a folder with Data prot.exp 4.0SP1. I'm getting an error all the time: Error 1047: No media specified. Everything seems to run ok, drivers and so on.

I have checked the Ultrium tape In the prop for device/media tab.

Any suggestions ?

Hi Bjorn:

DPE Error 1047 is indicating your backup job is not correctly selecting the right tape cartridge for the backup job. DPE software is very specific about choosing the tape cartridge for its backup job. In fact, if the DPE the tape cartridge has a different backup job labeled on the tape cartridge, you will get a Error 1047.

Try erasing the tape cartridge and letting DPX software label the tape cartridge for your backup job. Once the tape cartridge is correctly labeled for the backup job, then use the backup job properties to allow overwriting the tape cartridge.
