Currently, a scheduled backup jobs will start at the scheduled time and will wait until a tape is inserted in the drive. Sometimes - when the responsible guy is on a business trip, other people forget to insert a tape.


I would need a timeout  that will cause the scheduled job to be terminated with an error message if no tape is inserted within a configured timeout time after the scheduled time. E.g. if you have a job scheduled for 11 pm and a timeout of 4h, the job should get canceled at 3 am.


Any chance to get this?

Hello Marcus,


Yes, there is an open feature request for this ability.  I will add you to that feature request.
