Re: Tape drive errors

Sounds like the old tape is still in the drive, are you using DLT tapes? There was a problem with DLTs getting stuck but there has been a firmware release for the DLT7000 model drives.

Re: Tape drive errors

I am having the same error message. The backups complete successfully. I use LTO tapes through a tape san. I'm wondering if this is a timming issue on the exchange of tapes. Is there a setting I can adjust?

Re: Tape drive errors

That message usually means that the tape or media loaded in the drive is write protected. If it encounters such a tape/medium, it'll unload it, then reload another tape/medium, thus finishing the backup session.

Re: Tape drive errors

I have seen it where the medium is eitehr full or bad. U need to check if the tape is write able (if the tape is full or protected).
