NBU Folks:

Have been observing some curious behavior from NBU v5.1 MP3a (Windows 2003 
Server) the past few days.  We've been testing a new Master/Media Server and 
several SAN Media servers (Windows File System Backups/MS Exchange Mailbox 
Level Backups).

We've had a few jobs fail with non-zero (Exit Code 41) or 156 errors.  We've 
found that although the Activity Monitor showed actual data written to tape, in 
both cases, we were not able to "browse" these backups via the Backup/Restore 

After fixing the problems and re-starting the jobs, we were then able to get 
status 0 backups with no issues.

My question is this, is there anyway to manually index the tape that these 
images were written to and be able to browse the portion of data that was 
backed up during the original failed jobs.

Any insight or recommendations would be most welcome.
