Re: [Bacula-devel] bacula 2.4.1b1 waiting for already mounted volume


If you are new to Bacula and/or you are having support problems, you will 
probably get much better answers from the bacula-users list.  See 
www.bacula.org -> Support.  The bacula-devel list is specifically for 
development issues or issues that are clearly known to be a beta problem.

However, be aware that the information you sent is not complete enough for 
them to give a good answer.  I suspect that you either lost or forgot to 
define the slot numbers in the catalog.  Since your volume listing is 
clipped, I cannot confirm it.

Thanks for trying the beta version -- good luck on getting it going.

Best regards,

Kern
