We have just replaced our old tape drive with a new HP DLT VS160 tape. However we are getting very slow data rates. About 60MB per minute instead of 484MB per minute.
The server is a HP Proliant Server - ML350 G3 which has a HP/Compaq 64-Bit/66MHz Dual Channel Wide Ultra3 SCSI Adapter while the interface on the tape drive is Wide Ultra III SCSI-2 (LVD). We use Backup Exec 10.
Is there a way that we can speed up the backup to what it was before? Could it be the difference in interfaces that is causing the bottleneck?
