    Hi:

    My NT backup failed on my 2000 terminal server. Here is the error:
    Catalog Status
    Removable Storage did not mount the requested media. The operation was aborted.
    ----------------------
    it was running fine for a long time. When it encounters this error once night, it seems to stop the backup job that I scheduled completely. I mean after the night it gave this error, it shows nothing. Thanks for any help and comment

    Which application are you using for backup? Are there any drive errors in Disk Management or the Event Viewer? Does your backup server post any errors in the Event Viewer? What type of media are you using for the backup?

    I am using NT backup of the windows 2000 advanced server. I don't see any error in the Event Viewer relating to the backup. I also don't see any error from tape drive in the Computer Management. I can manually prepare the tape. I am using the Fuji DLTtape.

    Do you have to set an expiration date on the tape? I've seen similar errors when the tape becomes "expired". If you set an expiration date, check that first.

    No. There is no ending date.

    Did you reboot the server affected?
