HP SUPERSTORE DAT40

Error message: 6084 drive hardware error - servo or sensor
cause/solution: This is a media hardware error
Tape E6084 Drive hardware error - servo or senso [absl:1030 smd:1bh]
Checked SCSI terminations, rebooted server, tried different media tapes, downloaded Library Tools and ran check on media which all passed. Backup runs for several hours and then posts these messages.

Re: HP SUPERSTORE DAT40

How is this drive connected? Do you have more than one drive connected to the bus? Is there anything else happening at the time of failure?

James,

you might check the NT system eventlog and see if there are errors logged for your SCSI controller. If yes, feel free to post the message here along with the SCSI config (controller, cable,other devices and physical layout)

cheers,

Cal.

Re: HP SUPERSTORE DAT40

Is this drive connected to a 50 or 68 pin connection coming off of the SCSI controller?

The biggest problem I run into, are users trying to convert up to a 68 pin device from a 50 pin controller card.
