Proliant ML110 G2 freezes during Netware 6.5 Backup

Proliant ML110 G2 freezes during Netware 6.5 Backup

Hardware: Proliant ML110 G2 with SATA-RAID and Surestore DDS4 Streamer (HP LSI SCSI Controller).

Software: Netware 6.5 (SP5), BackupExec for Netware 9.2

Configuration:
NDS: Standalone-Server (just one server)
Volumes: SYS+DATA (NSS)

Issue: Backup starts, successfully stores between 3 and 10 gig to the streamer, then the server freezes: No keyboard input, no ping to server, no abend.log-entry, no message on system console :-(

I started with SP4 and it looked a little better after the SP5 upgrade (one full backup finished successfully). But next day the server was frozen again.

I also changed the Cache memory threshold in tsa.cfg from 25 to 10 (recommendation from a forum).

Any ideas appreciated!

Have upgraded the firmware of the server?
Does the storage controller have the latest driver ?
