JSI Tip 8010. A scheduled NTBackup on Windows Server 2003 generates '0x800710DC (ERROR_RESOURCE_NOT_PRESENT)'?

The subject behavior will occur if there is insufficient free space available on the tape media to complete the backup.

To workaround this behavior, use any of the following:

- Use a tape library to perform an unattended backup that requires more than 1 tape.

- Use media with a larger capacity.

- If you are appending the media, don't.

- Try using a cleaning tape to clean the tape drive heads.

- Backup less data, or split the backup into two or more jobs.

- Make sure that hardware compression is enabled.

NOTE: See RSM won't copy tape media, insufficient capacity?
