I have a remote Ultrium LTO that keeps on ejecting the tape. In the VERITAS BACKUP Exec Manager, the job status indicates it is "loading media" and it's stuck there.

The job before that failed but due to an invalid directory. I think this might be a different issue.

The tapes that are been used are the same type/generation/spec as the ones that have been working for years. Nothing has changed that I know of.

I read somewhere this might be related to the RFID chip in the tape catridge. However, since I am fairly new to backup systems I need to confirm this.

Feel free to ask me to post logs etc to disect this issue.

Please help soonest and many thanks.
