i am pretty sure backups don't work when error comes up and the tape drive locks up at that time too, requiring a cold reset
is any one else using this tape model (powervault 114t LTO2 tape drive)? -----
[snip] Do you know for sure if the backups are failing? It's possible the dump card states are harmless. I have some systems that do a dump card state on boot but that have never exhibited an actual problem. Another suggestion is to check if you have the latest firmware for both the tape drive and the controller. Still more people will probably say that there is bad voodoo between whoever your controller vendor is and whoever your drive vendor is. Mike
