Anyone make heads or tails of this error? There is no real error and nothing
to go off of. I have tried all the different types of hardware compression
as well as none. I have tried all the backup options under the job itself. I
have tried updating drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling the software.
THis is a new AIT drive with a brand new adaptec2960 dedicated card. THe
drive is on scsi id 0 and i have disabled disconnect in the bios. IT doesnt
matter what i do, i still get this error....The parameter is incorrect. The
job will start, preprocess, run for a few seconds, and then go into a on
hold (failed) state.

I have been working on this for 3 days and we havent had a backup in
forever. I just spent over 1500 on hardware for the backup and it still wont

Any ideas?
