I am sorry, but the information you supply doesn't allow any clear
diagnostic of the situation. Generally a rewind error occurs because
there is no tape in the drive or because you are using an autochanger
that is not configured correctly to work with Bacula.
In order to understand and possibly find a solution to your problem, you
will need to include the full output from the restore job along with
some idea of how the jobs was started (e.g. the full console listing
starting it), and if you have not used the default configurations, you
will need to supply your Storage daemon's configuration file, as well as
what OS you are running on, what database you are using and what version
of Bacula. Most likely you answered these questions in previous emails,
but you will need to supply them each time.
If you are using an autochanger, I wonder if you have run the Bacula
1.33 btape "test" program that tests the autochanger. It would also be
helpful to know if you have ever run a restore.
In the future, please email to the list, I read all the email sent to
the list. As clearly noted on the Bacula web page, if you write to me
directly, I will not answer.
Best regards, Kern
