hp D2D 2503I vs. backup exec 12.5d


We have bought a d2d2503i and 3 dl380 servers.

The server where the d2d is attached to is a dl380 running windows 2008 sbs x64, where its linked directly with a ethernet cable through a hp 2510i gigabit switch.

Anyone have some best care practice on configuration of this d2d in backup exec.

I can get it to take 1 backup - then it will not move to the next cartridge?

Performance isent really great speed wise - i get around 500MB/min average for 60 GB :(

I have setup the backup exec following:

1 backup job to cover 3 servers.
1 media set, where alle tapes is associated with overwrite protection for 23 days
(24 tapes emulated)

But it just.. stops .. anyone have some idea?
