Tape backups failing. Error: E00084F4
I have been struggling to get disk to tape backups working for several months now without any success.
Every time we try to run a backup, after about 30 seconds, it fails due to an "Unknown Error" with code E00084F4.
I must have read every post on this error on the Internet and have not been able to find a solution or solve this problem.
We have tried:
- reinstalling BUE.
- confirmed that the drive appears in Windows Device Manager.
- restarting BUE services many times.
- different backup sources.
- more than different 8 tapes.
We only have problems with backup to tape drives. Backup to Disk (B2D) work fine for all of our backups.
If more information would be helpful, please ask.
This is my first post here, so let me know if I have posted in the wrong section please.
Any suggestions would be greatly appriciated.
