Please mount append Volume or label a new one - help needed

Hello everyone,

I'm really struggling to solve a problem with my bacula setup and I could
use some guidance or helpful comments, PLEASE PLEASE. I've been using
Bacula for about six months with an AWS storage gateway with success, but
still have so much to learn. I would welcome any help!!

I've tried to walk through this current problem, read the docs, search the
web - but I'm really stuck.

some quick background:

I started shutting down the storage gateway from most of the day because
why run it when my backups aren't scheduled until 11:00 pm? This worked
fine for about a week, then I started getting messages in the jobs asking
'Please mount append Volume "xxxxx" or label a new one for' the job.

So, I 'update slots' to make sure nothing got out of alignment and ran a
job again:

27-Jun 13:03 bacula-dir JobId 419: Start Backup JobId 419,
Job=crashbox.2017-06-27_13.03.25_03
27-Jun 13:03 bacula-dir JobId 419: Using Device "Drive-4" to write.
27-Jun 13:03 bacula-sd JobId 419: 3307 Issuing autochanger "unload slot 31,
drive 3" command.
27-Jun 13:03 bacula-sd JobId 419: 3307 Issuing autochanger "unload slot 11,
drive 0" command.
27-Jun 13:03 bacula-sd JobId 419: 3304 Issuing autochanger "load slot 11,
drive 3" command.
27-Jun 13:03 bacula-sd JobId 419: 3305 Autochanger "load slot 11, drive 3",
status is OK.
27-Jun 13:03 bacula-sd JobId 419: Please mount append Volume "BAKEEC9D4D"
or label a new one for:

It seemed like the autochanger was working properly - moving tapes around
as needed. But, when I check which volumes are actually listed in the slots
using MTX, I got a different result:

$ sudo /usr/sbin/mtx -f /dev/tape/by-id/scsi-2414d5a4e5f5347572d433245

SO - bacula was saying that slot 11 is in drive 3, status ok
BUT, mtx was saying that slot 11 is in drive 1.

I stopped bacula-dir and bacula-sd, then used manual mtx commands to unload
/ load the tapes out of the drives, then restarted bacula, updated slots,
volumes and pools, but I keep getting errors about 'Please mount append
Volume "BAKEEC9D4D" or label a new one for' the job - even though now the
drives and volumes seem to line up with mtx data:

It looks to me like the correct volume is loaded in the correct drive.
Also, this volume has been written to for several months with no issues.
It's not new.

A query on the bacula database shows that the volume is recorded in the
proper slot and listed with the 'append' status:

Luke,

This usually happens when the path to the device in Bacula does not line up with the OS. For each drive one at a time, mount a volume in bconsole and verify with mtx status that it is where it is expected to be. Release the volume and verify that it has returned to its slot. Go through all of your drives that you have defined. This should find where the drive configurations need to be modified. One suggestion, it is best to name your bacula drives with the same numeric as the index. Tends to cause identification issues otherwise.

Re: Please mount append Volume or label a new one - help needed
June 29, 2017 01:00AM
​​

OK, so I've gone through my drives, mounting and unmounting from within
Bacula and then checking those results in MTX to see if there are any
discrepancies.

I should note that I modified my SD config file to change the device names
to match the drive index. Maybe I should have waited to make that change
until after these tests...... wanted to mention it in case you notice a
change in drive numbers.

If this is not a blank tape, try unmounting and remounting the Volume.

Any ideas why this would happen? This also explains (I think) why the jobs
were asking me to mount a volume or label a new one.......

Re: Please mount append Volume or label a new one - help needed
June 29, 2017 04:03PM
Hi Kern,

Thanks for the reply. The " Specified slot ignored." error was my fault - I
tried to mount to a drive which was already loaded. I did run through those
steps again with success, but copied the wrong 'mount; results into my
email.

I labeled all the tapes with their virtual bar codes using 'label barcodes'
then 'update slots'. The label listed using mtx for this volume is correct
and it was working well for several months so I assume it has since been
corrupted.

Your comment on connectivity in the could resonates with me based on my
experience using Bacula with AWS storage gateway for 6-9 months. If the
gateway is running 24/7 then I have zero connectivity issues and zero
device errors. This is one reason I decided to locate the Bacula server on
the same subnet in AWS as the storage gateway - the connection is extremely
responsive. I think that having the Bacula server in our local network and
communicating to a remote AWS storage gateway would present more
connectivity problems.

Your comment about Bacula assuming that all I/O works really seems to me to
be the source of my current problem. Since I started shutting the storage
gateway down every day from 2:30 AM - 10:30 PM I've noticed that sometimes
the iscsi devices do no reconnect from the Bacula server to the Gateway.
Or, if they do reconnect they sometimes have conflicting or incorrect iscsi
device mapping. So far, I have noticed that this kind of error effects the
mapping of the drive changer being listed on the same path as a drive. A
reboot of the Bacula server usually clears this up.

However, if there is some kind of iscsi mapping problem and Bacula starts
i'ts jobs I can see how this would result in all kinds of problems. I'm
assuming this is what happened here.

I could try to write a shell script on the Bacula server which checks iscsi
mapping before Bacula starts it's nightly jobs. Then, if the shell script
notices a device mapping problem and can't fix it, it would shut down
Bacula and email me. This wouldn't solve the mapping problem, but it might
help me avoid corrupted volumes because I could login and correct mapping
and then kick the Bacula jobs off. What do you think?

Thank you!
