Arcserve 7.0 - Netware 4.2

I have been having problems with this software now for about a year.
Twice in the year I have changed The DLT tape unit, and the tapes as all
te errors I get in Arcserve point to "Bad Media". How can it be? The DLT
unit was changed by HP technicians and the tapes brand new. I have also
reinstalled ArcServe from scratch, completely deleting all Databases and
starting again. I don't know what else to try.
I get the following errors:

1145 - MEDIA IS BAD
1027 - BAD TAPE
3035 - FAILED TO START SESSION, A6
MODULE: FILE SERVER
1051 - TAPE HARDWARE ERROR OR MEDIA ERROR
0015 - BACKUP OPERATION FAILES

Also, I get the following message:
The following media can be used in Device Group:

Media Name Serial # Media Pool Sequence
1 TAPE 1225102614 DEFAULT 1
2 TAPE 1225102608 DEFAULT 1
3 TAPE 1225102615 DEFAULT 1
4 TAPE 1225102603 DEFAULT 1
5 <BLANK>

I have 24 tapes which are rotated.

Arcserve is setup to:
-backup to BlanK Media
-Overwrite Same Media Name, or Blank Media First, then Any Media
-Overwirte Same Media Name, or Blank Media

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you

Re: Arcserve 7.0 - Netware 4.2

If you can exclude hardrware problems, then I guess it is simply an
incompatibility between your old Arcserve version and the tape drive you
have. E.g. your drive model might not be correctly supported by Arcserve.

Re: Arcserve 7.0 - Netware 4.2

Just confirming here -- this is with NetWare 4.2, right?

I've seen similar 'bad media' problems with an SDLT 320 using Backup
Exec 8.5 with NetWare 4.2.

Which DLT tape unit.

Probably best to follow up over in:
