    Question Expecting new tape on re-running amcheck

    Hi,
    I've installed and configured Amanda server 2.6.0p2 on Ubuntu 8.04, and have Zmanda Windows Client installed on a Windows 2003 server.
    I was able to create virtual tapes and run a back up last night, which was about 6GB of data. When I tried to run the back up today, amcheck returned the following error:

    slot 6:read label `DailySet1-1', date `20081120163709'.
    Tape with label DailySet1-1 is still active and cannot be overwriten.
    slot 7:read label `DailySet1-1', date `20081120163709'.
    Tape with label DailySet1-1 is still active and cannot be overwriten.
    slot 8:read label `DailySet1-1', date `20081120163709'.
    Tape with label DailySet1-1 is still active and cannot be overwriten.
    slot 1:read label `DailySet1-1', date `20081120163709'.
    Tape with label DailySet1-1 is still active and cannot be overwriten.
    slot 2:read label `DailySet1-1', date `20081120163709'.
    Tape with label DailySet1-1 is still active and cannot be overwriten.
    slot 3:read label `DailySet1-1', date `20081120163709'.
    Tape with label DailySet1-1 is still active and cannot be overwriten.
    slot 4:read label `DailySet1-1', date `20081120163709'.
    Tape with label DailySet1-1 is still active and cannot be overwriten.
    slot 5:read label `DailySet1-1', date `20081120163709'.
    Tape with label DailySet1-1 is still active and cannot be overwriten.
    (expecting a new tape)

    My amanda.conf settings are:
    dumpcycle 7
    runspercycle 5
    tapecycle 8 tapes
    device_output_buffer_size 1280k
    flush-threshold-dumped 0
    flush-threshold-scheduled 0
    taperflush 0
    autoflush no
    runtapes 1
    tpchanger "chg-disk"

    How do i get Amanda to use the remaining tapes?

    Thanks.

    Something is strange here because every slot has the same label on it. A couple ideas that come to mind is that Amanda is accessing the same slot over and over again thinking it is accessing different slots or every tape somehow got labeled with the same label.
