Have a client with a Dell Poweredge 2600 running SBS2003 with Internal Benchmark DLTape DLT1/VS80 and Veritas 9.1 build 4691
Back ups are successful in only about 1 in 10 attempts. Error Message is "The Request could not be performed because of an I/O device error" The following things have been done to address this issue:
1. Replaced Tape Drive
2. Replaced Tapes
3. Updated drivers from Veritas.
My company is about to suggest the purchase of a Host Adapter and put the dirve on it (Currently connected to MOBO SCSI) AND/OR upgrading to Veritas 10.1. Thoughts?
