Mammoth2 on Windows 2003 Server

Mammoth2 on Windows 2003 Server

I have just loaded a Compaq Proliant ML530 with Windows 2003 Server. It was formerly a W2K server.

I have an Adaptec 29160 SCSI card connected to an Exabyte
Mammoth2 drive.

When I try to do a backup, the Mammoth drive wants to constantly clean.  It will backup a few Meg, then clean.
Backup a few more Meg, then clean.  Eventually, the backup (using CA Brightstor v9) will fail with a Media Error.

Same story when doing a diagnostic test using M2 Monitor.

Mammoth firmware has been upgraded. Adaptec driver has been updated.

Any thoughts?

RE: Mammoth2 on Windows 2003 Server

   you either have clogged up heads on the scanner and need to use a M1 cleaning tape. Or the media you are using is not very good. Or lastly the scanner is faulty and the drive needs serviced.
