Running BackupExec 2010 R2 - job rate problems
I have a problem with my backup setup and its driving me nuts! Basically I have a DELL Powervault 114X library with one LTO5 installed (IBM Ultrium-HH). This library is connected with a DELL R710 server via an SAS connection. It had been working without problems for around 2 years but now its giving me all sorts of issues. Basically sometimes backup fails, other times takes longer to complete and surprisingly enough sometimes no problems at all.
I had done these things to try and sort out this issue:
- Uninstalled and reinstalled Symantec tape drivers
- Replaced cleaning media more than once (MAXELL & DELL)
- Power cycled server and tape library
One one occasion I managed to solve the problem with Step 1 but it gradually happened again as you can see here:
Unfotauntely due to costs I am not in a position to update the version and therefore I am not using Liveupdate.
Can someone enlighten me on how I can solve this issue ...?
Thanks a lot
