  1. Queuing jobs outside window EXIT STATUS 196


    Why does the scheduler queue up jobs when it "should" know
    that they are already outside the backup window? Only then to have
    them fail. It also appears that this is causing my drive to
    go off line about every five minutes or so which I find very
    anoying, I am having to set here and constantly monitor the
    device management window and watch when the drive goes off line
    and then put it back on line manually. This is really a pain.
    Is there some work around or some patch that can keep this drive
    from going off line every five minutes?

    The sheduler should not queue a job after the backup window. I'd advise
    creating a bpsched log to verify this, also, if you set VERBOSE in the
    vm.conf and monitor you syslog ( is ./var/adm/messages, etc) you will
    the the drive and robotic operations, and in there you will see it
    explicity tell you why the drives are going down. then fix the problem.
