Re: tape drive issue

Which is it? An LTO 2 or SDLT tape?

You say it's an SDLT 220 drive but the error message indicates LTO2.

Re: tape drive issue

Meant to include in previous post.
Since the destination is defined as LTO 2 and the model in reality is SDLT then it looks like you may be using the wrong driver.

However I don't know how the "Archive backup destination" field is populated. Is that just a text field you filled in or is it from the system itself?

If it's just a text field you filled in then ignore my comments.
