File library error

Hi,

 

I have a file library which has a repository made up of ten logical disks.  One of these disks is full and the others all have a lot of space.  When I try and start a backup to this library it always attempts to choose the full disk as a destination and fails with the error, "Cannot open device (Medium shadow file of distributed medium format is missing.)" after attempting to load an existing virtual tape.

 

The full text of the session is:

 

[Normal] From: BMA@server.domain.com "Drive1"  Time: 05/12/2013 11:50:11
 STARTING Media Agent "Drive1"

[Normal] From: BMA@server.domain.com "Drive1"  Time: 05/12/2013 11:50:16
 Loading medium from slot J:\DP_Depot\a7fe03645529cfa1d5095457653.fd to device Drive1

[Critical] From: BMA@server.domain.com "Drive1"  Time: 05/12/2013 11:50:16

 Unloading medium to slot J:\DP_Depot\a7fe03645529cfa1d5095457653.fd from device Drive1

[Normal] From: BMA@server.domain.com "Drive1"  Time: 05/12/2013 11:50:16
 ABORTED Media Agent "Drive1"

[Critical] From: BSM@server.domain.com ""  Time: 05/12/2013 11:50:53
 None of the Disk Agents completed successfully.
 Session has failed.

 

Can anyone explain what's happening?

 

Many thanks,

 

John

Re: File library error

Solved it.

 

It was a corrupt virtual tape file on the disk.  To get rid of it I used omnidownload to export the library info to a file and manually removed the offending filename from the text then used omniupload to pull the 'cleaned' config back in.
