System Fail while Vdump on two tapes

We have an old 4100 Machine using as a Test-Server. Now we should made a Vdump for Saving the work. The Problem is, the Database is so big, that we need 2 SCSI-SDLT-Tapes to store the Vdump.
We connected the Tapes and we can see them with #hwmgr -view dev
When i start the script for Dumping the Files,
we reach the Message:
"vmunix: scsi4: SCSI Error for target 4 sist0 = 0x4"
and the Server is hanging ...
We have to restart it ....
Is there anything wrong with the scsi definitions ?

Re: System Fail while Vdump on two tapes

Hi Michael

In fact we solved now the Problem.
So the first Error was an over-Length of the both Cables. The one from the Machine to the Tape was about 2m. And the other between the tapes was 1m. So this was too much for this kind of scsi-Type.

Thanks.
