Currently we use Arcserve r 11.5 SP3 Build 4405 and we have an
Ultrium LTO3 tape drive running on a Windows 2000 Server with sp4.
The jobs were intermittently failing for reasons about the tapes or media so I decide like a champ I will fix it up :D ha ha.... so I begin digging for why testing tapes, running diags etc....
1. I noticed the driver wasn't loaded into the system so I download and install the actual driver... check
2. Run Tape diags with xTalk Management Console and I got some errors, pretty inconsistent.... the fix... update firmware so I did.... to 1923. now tests perfect
3. Arcserve now consistantly states it can not format the media, no data detected.
4. I went through did some dbfix .. that was interesting enough... got no errors
still plagued by the can not format media.... I can not run a backup .... sigh please help....
