Have you looked at the comment below about crontab?

https://www.bacula.org/9.4.x-manuals/en/problems/Testing_Your_Tape_Drive_Wit.html#SECTION00432000000000000000

Is there anything in the syslog (e.g. /var/log/messages or dmesg) at the time
of the write errors?

Also (probably unrelated), why are you using the auto-rewind device (/dev/st1)
rather than the non-rewind one (/dev/nst1)?
