The device, \Device\Scsi\symmpi1, did not respond within the timeout period
I am getting the following error whenever I run a job on my BackupExec 12.5 media server:
"The device, \Device\Scsi\symmpi1, did not respond within the timeout period."
My full inventory usually takes 10-15 minutes to complete and gives a display of completion (%), but today it has taken over 30 minutes and still seems to be running. If I try and cancel it, it just sits there saying "Cancel Pending"
I have had a look at a post made by GlenRoetman about the same issue, but the steps supplied by CraigV in reply are all OK on my harware and firmware. I've recently upgraded to the latest drive and library firmware and things worked fine.
I am using an HP AutoLoader 1x8 G2 AutoLoader with LTO2 tapes. The tapes are ones that I have used previously.
I have checked the Event Logs on the server and they show no mention of hardware failure or anything from BackupExec relating to the issue
