Is it possible to verify a failed job Backup Exec 11d?

Hello Experts,

I would like to know if there is a way to re-verify a failed job in Backup Exec 11d. I checked my logs and it failed error msg below:

Error reported:
A tape read/write error has occurred.  This is usually caused by dirty read/write heads in the tape drive.  Clean the tape drive, and then try the job again.  If the problem persists, try a different tape.  You may also need to check for problems with cables, termination, or other hardware issues.

So the backup completed, but failed on the verify. Is there a way to re-verify a job instead of doing the complete backup again?

Not to my knowledge.  For what its worth, that message could mean a variety of things ranging from a bad SCSI controller to outdated firmware on your TBU.  After a lot of troubleshooting and a lot of failed jobs I replaced the little Dell TBU with a Raid NAS device.

i would've thought there must be a way of re-verifying a job if only the verify failed due to a read error instead of running the entire backup of 1.2TB. If not, I will accept the first comment.
