My configuration is TSM Server 4.1.2, NT4.0 SP6, LTO 3583 with 2 tape
drives 3580 connected via Adaptec 29160. Drivers are the IBM ones in

Backups are running perfectly, restores are also running perfectly but
during the week-end, when reclamation is running, I get the following
error messages :

05/08/2001 16:39:04   ANR1417W Access mode for volume 265AADL1 now set
                       "read-only" due to excessive read error.

Any idea ?
