Dear experts,

Have a strange one re backup on a W2K3 server (using NTBackup).

Have a client using a Quantum DLT-V4 tape drive to backup. Only recent the backup fail everynight and report shown there is a hardware problem. I applied some Hotfix (828481 and 817688) but system said Windows is in newer version so no need for these Hotfixes.

Having taken that tape drive to my office and tried on my W2K3 server backup works fine. Anyone have any idea what causing the failure? One thing to mention (not sure if related) is that client server is using Volume Shodow Copy but mine isn't.

Backup report attached. Thx in advance.
