lto3 Tape drive

Is anyone using a LTO3 tape drive with HP-UX 11.00 and fbackup. I just got a LTO3 tape drive to replace my LTO2 drive cause it was filling up and asking for a second tape. I want to keep the backup down to one tape as it runs at night and no one is here to swap tapes. The backup keeps failing at different points. Is there a patch I need to load for the tape drive or for fbackup?

Re: lto3 Tape drive

what does syslog or dmesg say?
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"

This is what the syslog says when it fails.
