Any ideas why Backup Exec 12.5 would keep a job in the "running" state until a new tape is inserted (when it doesn't need to write anything to the new tape)?
We've got an LTO-3 drive (400/800GB), backing up 80GB of data. The backup starts at 11PM and the last thing backed up (according to the job history) is around 12:45AM. It will eject the tape, but keep the job in the "running" state. As soon as I insert another tape, after about 5 seconds, the job completes. I've cataloged the "new" tape, and nothing new was written to it today. This doesn't seem to hurt anything, but it's annoying that the Job Monitor page doesn't accurately reflect the length of a backup and I have to drill into each backup's "History" to get this info.
