Backup stops after a few meg with Dell PowerVault 122T LTO
Posted on 2004-09-16
I have a Dell PowerVault 122T LTO connected to a server running Windows Server 2003, using an Adaptec 29160 Card.
Using Veritas BackupExec 9.1 (also tried using ArcServe, same problem)
It sees the drive and all the slots, is able to load and unload tapes, format them, rewind them, in fact it will do anything except run a backup of files over 15 megs total.
If I try running a job that has any more files in it, the backup stalls after 15 or so megs, and the tape library display says 'drive stopped' and will not do anything until the job times out (or I cancel it).
