Running The Backup Procedure


J

Jack Kuzuian

I'm attempting to set a schedule for our nightly backup
and I am successful in creating the schedule. The backup
does deploy on time however it doesn't complete. When I
check the report, I get the following message...

The operation was not performed because the specified
media cannot be found.

How do I arrange the backup to use any media as opposed to
looking for specific media?

/UM

Finds the first available media, formats it, and uses it for the current
backup operation. You must use the /P switch to designate a device-type
media pool when you use the /UM switch so that Backup searches for the
appropriate type of media (for example, 4mm DDS). When you use the /UM
switch, Backup will search the following media pools for available
media: Free pool, Import pool, Unrecognized pool, and Backup pool. When
available media is found, the search will stop and the media will be
formatted and used without prompting you for input. This command is not
applicable to tape loaders and should only be used if you have a
stand-alone tape device.

How would we add that /UM switch?
