  • PnP Library "Media already assigned"-error
    Posted: 07-06-2012, 9:20 AM


    I configured a PnP Library to an external USB drive. I use the library as target for a single Storage Policy secondary copy. When running the first Aux Copy, it stops after half an hour or 20 GB of data (more or less). Error: media in the drive is already assigned. Please insert a new media into the libraryPnP.

    Also a "Failed to mount media"-error and something about Operation: Read OML (disk is being labeled automatically).

    What can cause this behaviour of the Aux Copy, initially everything going well and then suddelny failing?

    Any errors in the OS Event Logs on the MediaAgent?  That may give you some indication on what is going on.  You may want to check to see if the USB drive/device is being dropped from the OS.

    No errors in the OS Event Logs.

    However, the problem has disappeared.

    I made one change, filtered the temporary drive from the Content of the Media Agent. Not sure if it has anything to do with the problem however.

    Thanks, Sjors
