Arcserve 2000 and DLT7000 goes offline

I am running Arcserve2000 v7, on NT4 attached to a Exabyte 230D(DLT7000). My problem is when Arcserve reports an unreadable media during inventory it goes offline (loses connection with the DLT7000). I would have to wait until arcserve inventories all the tapes that i selected usually 5-10 tapes then do a clean tape to reconnect to the DLT. Any idea why arcserve and the DLT loses connection. I am running Arcserve2000 with arcserve service pack 4. Any help would be appreciated.

Try updating firmware. I have no clue which utility should you use for device from exabyte...

We had the same problem on three servers running Win2K with Arcserve 2000. I down rev'd the arcserve patch to SP3 and that fixed one server.

On the second server I installed a series of post SP4 arcserve patches. Try these patches in this order:
Q020824
Q023824
Q027941
Q028915
Q029368
You can find these at the CA website: http://support.ca.com/Download/patches/asitnt/arc_eng_menu.html

Two questions:
what type of scsi card are you using?
What type of tapes and are these tapes new or used before? I've also had problems with arcserve not liking tapes created by other systems (ie Veritas).

hope that helps.
