Upgraded BARS to 4.0.9, have problem

4.0.7 would archive successfully to tape but 4.0.9 puts the following in the log:

[09:16:47 AM] Successfully backed up Cisco CallManager on

[09:16:48 AM]

[09:16:48 AM] Staging complete. Size of staging directory is 184MB.

[09:16:48 AM] Building archive on Tape.

[09:16:49 AM]

[09:17:22 AM] [Error] Could not build archive successfully.

Any ideas?


Re: Upgraded BARS to 4.0.9, have problem

There is a bug filed on this issue:


This bug is viewable on with login.

The current workaround for the bug is the following:


1. Use Local or remote location for backups instead tape.

2. If required to use tape, ignore the message "Could not build archive successfully" and

open the windows task manager and under the processes tab, check "Tar.exe" running. Wait

for to get it completed. Backup will be created successfully on tape as well.

FYI, tar is successfully getting created on tape. It is only progress bar error which

gives this wrong status due to 'overflow' error. AND user has to wait till tar completes

its operation on tape (given in workaround). "Could not build archive successfully.",

this message can be ignored for the time being for the tape backups.
