Bacula kills tape drive and autoloader
July 21, 2017 12:59PM
Hello all

I have been working on adding a HP Overland 8 tape drive to my Bacula backup system.

I have the system recognizing the tape and autoloader.

I can run mt and mtx command. I can write to and read from the tapes. I was able to successfully run btape test and autochanger but when I ran the (fill) test the device would be removed from /dev and the test would fail. I then need to power cycle the device.

I have looked at dmesg and there is nothing reported about btape or the devices. I have rebooted the server. I have reset the device to factory default. I have also powered the device off for at least 15 minutes.

Any advice would be great.
