For the last few weeks, our backup exec 2010 have been having some problems backing up on the Friday rotation. I am trying to determine whether the tape is bad or something wrong with the backups.
What is happening is we have two backup jobs schedule a week. Our Exchange backup and our file data drive backup.
On Friday, what normally takes 1 hour for exchange to fully backup before going to the file data drive backup. All of this is backed up to a 1.4TB tape drive.
However our Friday backup takes over 65+ hours to backup exchange, causing the File data drive backup to fail since it can't run the job during the allocated time.
We are using TDK Ultrium tape drives.
The exchange backup does finish but not until almost a few days later while all the other exchange backups on the other tapes (we recycle each tape once a week, so Monday tape drive is overwritten with next Monday tape drive) are fine and finish in a hour for exchange and a few hours for files.
Backup exec shows no errors for that single tape.
Attach is the tape drive properties in backup exec and a screenshot of a failed job.
