Can you turn on verbose logging on the affected filer and see what the logs say ? Also, from the filer, can you mount/rewind/etc a tape ? I'm curious about this NBU msg: " Device serial number for device at path /dev/nrst1a does not match drive adic_drv03 ....
we have a netbackup 184.108.40.206 environment, linux master/media servers. after upgrading 2 netapp fas3160's to 8.1.1RC1, the direct attached (thru a san switch) lto5 tape drives went down, and go back down after "up'ing" them. 1 netapp has 1 drive, the other has 2 drives, and all 3 went down and stay down. from the first filer i see the tape drive:
fas3160e> ndmpd status

does anyone else have a setup with netapp ontap 8.1.1rc1 working? we have 12 other netapps at lower ontap versions that still work. i think i found a compatibility chart that says it is supported.
