We have some intermittent problems with downed drives and in Windows application
eventlog I see two error messages "Check integrity of the drive, drive path,
and media" and "TLD(0) drive 3 (device 2) is being DOWNED, status: Unable
to open drive".
We have eight SDLT1 tape drives with v51 firmware in a Compaq ESL9595SL library
and NetBackup DataCenter 4.5 with MP3.
I have read about similar problems with LTO drives with early firmware that
caused SCSI reserve/release problems.
Now I wonder if someone else have had the same problem with SDLT1 drives?
