HP Storageworks 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader - slow backup speed

We have a new Storageworks 1/8 G2 LTO-4 Ultr 1760 SCSI tape autoloader, product number AJ816A and we have Symantec Backup Exec 12. It works find and backs up and restores, recognizes everything but we are only getting a max speed of 530 MB a minute. We have almost 800 GB of data to backup and the backup is taking 24 to 25 hours to complete.

Is there any way to speed this up??

Hello Jeanine,
How are you backing up? Is data coming from LAN and streaming? What is the HBA?

This is just the speed that is coming from local media on that server - not across the LAN.

The HBA is a HP U320 SCSI HBA All One Channel - number 374654-B21
