I have Backup Exec 2010 and I am facing the problem where my tape drive keeps going down after each backup job, I get device error alerts.
As a workaround I have to restart the services in order to get it working. It is a quantum LTO 4 drive and I have tried installing the symantec drivers however it doesnt pick up the drive once I do that and in device manager I can see that it does not like the driver.
Could this be physical issue with regards to scsi ports?
