Backup Tapes


Jim Matthews

I run backup each evening, using the following as part of the batch job:

C:\WINNT\system32\NTBACKUP.EXE backup "@C:\Documents and
Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows
NT\NTBackup\data\Daily Backup.bks" /n "KT %dtt%" /d "KT %dtt%" /v:yes /r:no
/rs:yes /hc:blush:n /m normal /j "Daily Backup" /l:f /p "4mm DDS" /um

(This allows it to be recorded on whatever tape happens to be in the drive
at the time)

The only btime I have a problem is when it "runs over" onto a second tape.

It ejects the tape, but does not provide me with a way to insert a seocnd
tape - I try just giving it a new tape, but it won't work.

It tells me to add it to the RSM database, but I can't do that either.

Anyone know how to do this ?

Thanks in advance

I prepare mine from Computer Management, the backup continues after the tape
is prepared.
