Uninstalled Backup Exec 12.5 -

So after years of issues with Symantec Backup Exec I decided to uninstall it and use another sbs and found it in Backup Assist great for a small shop.

Well my first test was with ntbackup to ensure at least at the windows level backup were still working. To my shocking amazement a "Required Media Missing Error" returned. There is no free media available with the selected type. Add unused media or click Cancel to end the operation. Little searching around on microsoft.com produced this:


Using Method 2 corrected the issue
rsm view /tlibrary

Off-line Media
IBM ULTRIUM-TD3 SCSI Sequential Device

start /wait rsm.exe refresh /lf"IBM ULTRIUM-TD3 SCSI Sequential Device"

After running this command the volume copy service isn't functioning correctly so a reboot of the server should correct it.
