Re: DLT8000 hardware problem?

Hi,

I have some suggestions for you.

1. Load the latest omniback patches for
your version. The patches can be found
at the following link:

http://support.openview.hp.com/cpe/patches/ob/ob.jsp

2. Do any of these tape drives backup information
from more than one host? If so you need to
make sure that no SCSI resets occur. In
order to stop this, you need to disable the
EMS monitoring for dm_stape monitor.

3. Make sure that there is lock file name
defined for each logical drive in omniback.

4. Update your firmware to the latest version.

5. Make sure that you have the 'st_ats_enabled'
kernel parameter set to 0
