HP9000 K210 DAT DRIVE DDS2 C1533A

Hello,

I have a problem when doing backups.I have replaced the drive twice.When the backup kicks
of it cant read the volumne header.Then it also
says i/o during close.I ran a backup in the afternoon it worked fine.I am being to wonder
if this is a backup software error.The error
is as follows SCSI TAPE DEV=0XCD040000 I/O ERRORS DURING CLOSE.Do you think the tapes could be causing the problem.

Hi Pj,

I think tape and tape drive are both OK.

In this case, the script was issuing the mt(1) command
against a no-rewind device file which produced the IO error.
The mt command works best when used with the Berkeley
style device file. This is explained in the man page:

WARNINGS
Only raw, no-rewind Berkeley-type devices should be specified. This
type of device will not reposition the tape upon close. An example of
such a device is /dev/rmt/0mnb. Please refer to mt(7) for more
details.


When the /dev/rmt/0mnb device was used, the problem went away.

Hello,

The tape drive was faulty.
