Hi All,

Finally getting back around to this issue. I'm running Bacula 7.4.7, installed from source, on a CentOS 7 server. I'm trying to back up 2 windows clients to a  HPE LTO-5 Ultrium SAS tape drive. I have a Pool definition for each windows client, one sets "Maximum Volume Bytes = 20G" and the other "Maximum Volume Bytes = 50G".

The LTO-5 tapes should hold ~1.5Tb. When I run backups for each of these clients, Bacula calls "End of medium" at about the max bytes setting and asks for a new tape - see below:

07-Mar 17:12 bacula-sd JobId 1: End of medium on Volume "Hme-100" Bytes=21,474,819,072 Blocks=332,880 at 07-Mar-2018 17:12.

09-Mar 17:04 bacula-sd JobId 7: End of medium on Volume "CAD-100" Bytes=53,687,079,936 Blocks=832,202 at 09-Mar-2018 17:04.

My understanding of the "Maximum Volume Bytes" setting was to limit the file size on the tape, but the backup would create as many files as needed to complete the backup if the medium would contain it. It should not set the medium capacity.

Am I missing something, or is something just broken?

Thanks much!
