Hi All,

  I have 4560SLX Tape Library connected using a fiber cable to my backup srever, I started getting a problem that both backup drives are going offline, the solution will be to press the LCD for 4560SLX Tape Library and then it will come online again, I tried changing the power cables but its the same, any idea why the 4560SLX Tape Library is going offline after 1 to 1:30 hours.

please note tha the 4560SLX Tape Library was working fine before.

I know with SCSI drives, this can happen when the SCSI card is flakey. Could you have a bad HBA?

Are there any FSC Fault System Codes on the display when it happens?

Is it possible your OS is sending test unit ready codes and interrupting backups?  This was a pretty common thing with Fibre Channel attached tape drives not behind some kind of interface controller.
