SSL1016 SDLT 320 compression option

Whenever the autoloader unload the the tape from drive, the compression option of the drive will reset to disable. Any idea of this problem??

What do you have running for a backup software?

Re: SSL1016 SDLT 320 compression option

compression option is usualy managed by the backup application, so if you selected to use Hardware compression in your job, the server will send a scsi command to set the flag in the drive, and the backup wil use the hardware compression as requested. Then it is up to the backup application to reset the flag or to let is as it is
