Sounds like the drive is paused - go to the devices tab, right click on anything that has (paused) against it and un-pause it.

My device is not paused it says it is off line. That is happening for my Monday backup folder but when i do a test run for tuesday it comes up successful.

I had to uninstall and re-install the device drivers for the tape drive/ library
In the microsoft windows device manager, uninstall the device.
Or you could try to reinstall 9.0 and in the device setup tell it to use the Veritas drivers and not microsoft drivers on the tape device.

Good luck!
