Hi,

I have a LUN presented to a backup server from an EVA SAN, the LUN consists of several disks configured in RAID5 with a total size of 5TB.

I got an error during a backup that has always worked before and a KB article from Symantec (backup exec) says that this error occurs if the volume sector size is larger than 512bytes, it also says "Volume sector sizes typically do not exceed 512 bytes until the volume size is greater than 2TB".

any idea of a utility to check the volume sector size?

You can use chkdsk - but it might take quite a while on a big lun.  You can also download "diskpar.exe" (note the missing "T") to check the sector size.
