    Hi

    I'm having a problem with symantec Backup Exec.
    I want to take a backup from my server on a NAS. This backup worked in the past, but suddenly it stopped working

    I always get the error:
    Error category    : Backup Device ErrorsError             : e000810c - Physical Volume Library Drive not available.

    My devices are offline. When i change them to online, there's no problem but once i launch the backup they change to offline.

    What can i do about this?

    thanks in advance
    Good Question?
