Hi all,
        We have just set up a system consisting of a Sony DDS-4 tape 
drive attached to 7300 with an AdvanSys UltraWide SCSI card in order 
to back up the Macs in our lab. It has been working perfectly for the 
last week, then suddenly last night Retrospect gave us a 102 error 
(trouble communicating) after copying 12 out 13 files on the first 
volume in the script. Retrospect can still see the drive (as can 
SCSIProbe etc) and recognise which tape is in it but gives a 102 
error whenever we try to read or write to it...

We have the list of things to try (ie cables, terminators, etc) but 
this will take us a while as we don't have easy access to any other 
cables or terminators.

What I was actually interested in is why this problem might have just 
happened in the middle of a backup (which was in the middle of the 
night)?  Is this normal for SCSI to just die like this? I would have 
thought it would be more likely to occur after a shutdown or 
something else changing?

Any experiences, observations or suggestions welcome...

Adrian Smith
