Greetings all!

I have BE11D on a Win2K3 32 bit server connected to an IBM LTO5 tape drive. Been reading quite a bit of documentation from Symantec on different problems I am having. I updated the Symantec drivers for my tape drive (this system was working fine until the raid card hiccuped. I got the raid up again & all volumes reappeared) & checked the Device Mgr for any flags, none appeared. All of the jobs are configured with the correct credentials. These jobs will do a backup scan that never ends but will not perform their true backups nor write to the tape drive.

My forehead is sore from banging it on the desk! I seek the experts!

Any help/guidance provided is appreciated!

Thanks,

David :shock:

Hello,

a couple things you can do in case there is a little bit of resynching that needs to happen.

Do a complete power cycle of the tape drive:
1. Power Off the Server completely
2. Power off the Tape Drive then
3. Power on the Tape Drive wait till it is at a 'Ready' State then
4. Power on the Server

recreate the job
