I am running Veritas 9.1 on Server 2003. My tape backups have been failing w/ this error in the Job Completion Status:
Final error: 0x45d - The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.
Final error category: Other Errors
Also, this error in the Errors listing:
Storage device "backup 1" reported an error on a request to read data fromthe media. The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.
Could this be a bad cable connecting the server to the tape drive?
I am also having a problem w/ the tape drive jamming and I have to turn off the server, reboot the tape drive and then start the server back up to get going again.
Any thoughts would be welcome.
