Re: System error log

Are you able to take a look at the drive?

Are there any warning lights on it? Is it powered on?

Which backup software are you using?

What type of server/library is the tape connected too?

Also did you take a close look at your log(s) looking for errors that may have led to the software auto-disabling the drive until the other error is corrected?
The Devil is in the detail.

Re: System error log

I can see the drive and it tests out fine. i can also do good backups. im using backup exec 11D its a hp proliant 320 using a msl 6030 tape library with LT04 drives. i had LT02 drives in as well and still got the same error. i havent seen anything that would lead to this error.
