We have a Dell Poweredge 2500 which has a dell PowerVaultTM  110T DLT1 VS80 external DLT drive fitted to it. When i run a backupjob with verify enabled i get this error message....

Job Operation - Verify

Storage device "BNCHMARK 1" reported an error on a request to read data from media.

Error reported:
Incorrect function.

^ ^ ^ ^ ^

then the job fails. It does not run the verify part of the job.

We are using DLT IV media and dell's website confirms that this media is compatible with the drive.

Anybody help ?
