Compaq (HP) SDLT 160/320 Crashes Netware 6 server

I have replaced a Compaq DLT8000 drive with a SDLT 160/320 drive. I am running NW 6 SP3 and Backup Exec 9 (build 4172). The latest firmware (54) has been applied to the drive.

The drive works fine with SDLT tapes, but when I try to read a DLT IV tape created on the "old" drive, BE crashes and takes Netware down with it.

The job I am attempting is a "Catalog" in preperation for restoring a file from the tape. BE is able to get the header information but crashes when it tries to load the segment map. The crash is so bad I have to power down the server.

Hi,

Is this problem only related to the SDLT drive ? If you try this restore from the old DLT8000 drive, does it work ?
