I have a DELL 130T autoloader running be 8.5 build 3572. I decided to
do a " longerase " for the first time. After 4 hours I aborted the
job. After 4 more hours it stll would not end. I brought down services
and rebooted the 130T and server. Had to manually eject tape from
drive. When doing a catalog everytime it got to this particular tape,
the famous BSOD and it auto-rebooted. After talking to Veritas ( no
help) I decided to change tape. Problem disappeared. Tried the same
sceniaro again with a brand new tape. Same problem. The POINT is "
Veritas has one helluva long erase option. If you start it, never abort
it. Come back in 24 hours and it may be finished"
