tape is giving the below kernel errors on the system's messeges
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
kernel: st0: Error 70000 (sugg. bt 0x0, driver bt 0x0, host bt 0x7).
kernel: st0: Error with sense data: Info fld=0x10000, Deferred st0: sense key Medium Error

Re: redhat with HP tape

Quick look, it says, medium error. Is this medium is new or old ? Have you tried to use new medium ? How many tape drives connected ?
