Thread: Not writing to tape NB 6.0Mp3

  1. Not writing to tape NB 6.0Mp3


    Platform: Win Server 2003 Std (fully patched)
    Software: NetBackup 6.0 MP3
    Tape Drive: SpectraLogic 2K (2x Sony SDX-900V tape drives)

    Every policy but one is writing to tape. I receive the following error when
    it attempts to write.

    10/3/2006 6:23:26 PM - mounting B64198
    10/3/2006 6:24:25 PM - Error bptm(pid=4008) ioctl (MTREW) failed on media
    id B64198, drive index 0, The I/O bus was reset. (1111) (bptm.c.7550)
    10/3/2006 6:24:24 PM - mounted; mount time: 00:00:58
    10/3/2006 6:24:31 PM - end writing
    media position error(86)

    I would say that there might be a hardware fault BUT my Exchange backup which
    is set to write straight to tape writes information just fine. Any suggestions
    would be great.

    Just guessing but does Windows use the Veritas sg driver or equivalence?
    If it does, that could be a place for you to start.
