How to configure HP Data Protector for to use more than 1 Tape

Hi

I have an HW server with Centos as Operating System. Here I have my backup software HP Data Protector Express 4.0 SP1 with a Tape Unit HP StorageWorks Ultrium 920 SAS LTO-3 Tape.

 

At the moment I'm using a single job for backup that is running every morning from Tuesday to Saturday at 8.15 AM.

There is a tape rotation so I can have 8 days/4 weeks/8 months/4 years.

Tape are 800/400 GB LTO 3.

All was working very weel until some days ago.... ( due to the amount of my server datas)  ... I got a problem ....

Now the daily back is stopping asking me a second tape .....

 

I tryed to insert a new tape, a formatted tape,a clean tape but always the backup job rejected it.

I know it is something related to the name of the set/rotation etc but I don't know what I have to due to be able to insert a second tape after the first is full.

 

Do I have to chamge something in the Job? Or anything else?

Could someone help me explaining in details what I have to do?

 

Many thanks in advance.

Pierlugi

have you tried to give the Job a DataProtector formated Media?

How are your Device- and Pool-Settings?

Is there something wrong?
If I format a new cartridge, will I have to insert the new cartridge inside the rotation set? or just put it into the tape when the job ask me?
Thanks for your help.
