I am getting an Event 34113 error in my Veritas Backup Exec v 9.00 rev 4454 everytime I try to backup.

Daily - Differential -- The job failed with the following error: Unable to attach to one of the drives.

 Category: Job Failed
Type Error
Server: 2000SERVER
Device: SEAGATE 1
Job name: Daily - Differential
Time alert received: 3/25/2005 8:57:19 AM
Source: Job

 Properties of Category: Job FailedEnabled: Yes
Send notifications: No
Record in event log: Yes
Event ID: 34113
Automatically clear: No
Include job log: No

I have shut down the server a few times, and have stopped and restarted BackExec services a few time.

How do I determine what drive connection is failing? I am running a single win2kserver on an IBM xSeries server and a DDS4 tape drive.

In the Job Monitor window, double click the failed job.

Job Log tab --> expand all
Scroll down until you find the point at which the error occured.

You should be able to find it; if not, check the Job History Tab to determine what was missed.

I've seen this when in the Job Setup window (edit the job) the selection view is graphical; change it to text and ensure that all drives in the list actually exist.
Also, this can be a permissions issue.
In the Job Setup window again, edit the job and then in the graphical view ensure that when you click on a drive that something appears in the right-hand window.  Otherwise, you should get your permissions error there.

If all is well there, are you backing upthrough a firewall, or is one of the machines you're backing up sitting with a firewall enabled?

Thanks. It turned out to be a rights issue. I changed the admin password and changed all the passowrds for the services, but forgot about the jobs until I tried to edit it.
