    Default slot issues

    Hi All,

    I have two backup servers, each having 6 slots and were synchronized, making it easy to transfer them to external storage. However, one had storage issues so kept on crashing. This resulted in the current slot to be different between the two servers. My questions are:

    1. Is there a way to force one server's current slot to match the other server?
    2. Is there a way to move files in one slot to another slot?

    Basically, Backup1 just backed up to slot 2 whereas the problematic Backup2 just backed up to slot 5. I want Backup2 to backup to slot 3 for the next backup and move files from slot 5 to slot 2.

    Also, what causes dumps too big error. Message was: lev 0 FAILED "[dumps too big, 20443040 KB, but cannot incremental dump new disk]". Had plenty of space in /Backup and at least 150GB free in /dumps.

    I may have found the issue with the dump failure. I just had a look at my conf file and noticed that I had specified 300GB as the tape size and it had reached 298GB so had no room for the additional 20GB.
