Seagate Tape Drive Restore Problem
Posted on 2006-11-03
I have a Seagate STT3401A tape drive running with Symantec's Backup Exec 8.0. The firmware on the drive is 310B. I can't get the drive to restore any files. When I broswe through the file system structure on the tape, everything seems to be there, but it never restores anything. It doesn't give any errors, but will run for literally hours in a pending status. We have to kill it everytime, it never works.
I just moved the drive to a new server, as the old one was practically dead. It hasn't restored a file since the move, but it does appear to be backing up successfully.
Does anyone have any ideas of what I can try?
