Scsi tape Error

Hello,

We have the following errors during night backup on STK T10000A tape drives :

SCSI TAPE: dev = 0xcd5e3040 I/O error during close

This error happens when a backup session needs more than one media to complete; we get it exactly when the second media is loaded on T10000A drive

The stape debug details are on the attached file.

Thanks for your Help

Re: Scsi tape Error

Shalom,

try this:

1) Clean the tape drive according to procedure.
2) Brand new media.
3) Hardware support if the first two steps do not help.

Re: Scsi tape Error

Mostly it would be the bad tape or bad drive or the drive requires cleaning.

Also please check if you have the SCSI drive terminated properly, I notice somoe lbolt messages, can you attach the syslog.log file please?

The media are OK and the drives new ones !

Re: Scsi tape Error

This sounds like it's likely and application or OS issue. That application and OS are you using?
