Hi,

 

I found this, we have the cards in another environment doing the same thing
(encryption) but with IBM LTO-4 and no problems:

 

OLD CARD w/ IBM LTO-4 + ENCRYPTION:

BIOS Version : 3.00

Driver Firmware Version : 5.03.02 (d5)

Flash BIOS Version : 3.00

Flash FCode Version : 3.15

Flash EFI Version : 2.21

Flash Firmware Version : 5.04.01

 

NEW CARD:

BIOS Version : 2.16

Driver Firmware Version : 4.04.09 (85)

Flash BIOS Version : 2.16

Flash FCode Version : 2.00

Flash EFI Version : 2.00

Flash Firmware Version : 4.04.00

 

I will try the newer F/W when I find it.

 

Justin.

Subject: NBKMS failed with error status: Invalid KAD length (1220) (there
was only 1 google result for this error)

 

Hi,

 

Problem

The drive resets itself and goes DOWN.  I've had similar problems with IBM
LTO-4 tape drives and I had to use a specific F/W for the fiber HBAs (QLogic
2462-CK) so that the tape drives don't reset themselves, which kills the
backups.  Now, using QLogic 2562-CK 8.0gbps HBA with LTO-5 drives, the
problem happens again!  Directly connected to IBM LTO-5 (F/W: B6W2) tape
drives., when using nbkms, exactly the same (different keys of course) in a
different environment, I get the following errors..

 

The one result on Google points to the 6.5.2 documentation updates:

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/resources/sites/BUSINESS/content/li
ve/TECHNICAL_SOLUTION/59000/TECH59310/en_US/302438.pdf

Which states:

EC_KS_invalid_kad_len -1220 -

"Invalid KAD length"

BPTM and the tape drive have requested a Tag /

KAD length combination that is not supported.

 

QLOGIC DETAILS:
