Backup Exec tape drives continuously go Offline
Posted on 2008-06-24
Good day, We have an HP MSL 2048 Robotic Library with Backup Exec since 2004 and have never had any problems, until recently. Over the past couple of months our tape drives continuously set itself to Offline either at the end of the cycle, just before, or sometimes at random. In most cases, this causes us to have to re-run a majority of the scheduled backups once we come back in as they would have failed over night. Once they are offline, it is impossible to get them to come back online without powering down the library.
Curious if anyone has had a similar issue and if so, what seemed to be the fix?
Thanks for any help you may provide.
