Hi all,

I'm running TSM on a Windows 2003 server and it's got a Quantum tape library attached via a scsi card. I'm getting alot of parity error messages in the system event logs.
So far I've only tried different drivers from the Microsoft driver to the later Adaptec one.

What would be causing the the parity errors and what can I do to resolve the issue.

    Accepted Solution

    From what I have seen Parity errors are usually due to a bad terminator or improper termination. After that I'd try the cable.
