I think my LTO drive/SCSI card isnt working properly
Hi all, I've been having problems backing up to our HP Ultrium external LTO 4 tape drive for the past few months.
The size of the backup file is 430Gb.
The speed of the backup never gets above 1,500Mb/Min
And at about 380Gb, the tape ejects and BE wants another tape to finish the job.
I presume that the job is going too slow for the tape drive, although it should fit 800Gb uncompressed.
At first I thought it was the network, or the source or possibly the tapes..... Ive tried for weeks to speed things up. Just this week I have tried putting CA Arcserve on another piece of hardware, and the same thing happens. The only things I moved over are the tape drive and the scsi card.
Has anyone see this before? Possibly the SCSI card or Tape Drive? Maybe the cable?
