As it seems your system seems to be aware as well that something is wrong.  Not
sure what... Can you involve library support?  In system logs it says that ASC 
code
posted was unique to the vendor so they might see what it is.  Before that, you 
may
wish to check if firmwares you have (drives, switches, HBAs) are all up to 
date.  
Those things can always drive you mad and leave you without backup for months 
until
you find what's and where wrong.  I also now see that serial number is repored 
strange 
for your drive (do you see it correctly when running inquire command?).  Also, 
check
your st patch version.  Not sure what Solaris rev. is yours, but if 9 then 
check with
"showrev -p | grep 113277" to see what patch release do you have.  If you will 
change
something (like applying newer st patch) make sure to save st.conf (as it will 
be wiped
out by new "empty" one).  Hm, I removed your first message... I believe you 
were using
some st.conf entries, right?  If so, SDLT320 is supported then:
strings /kernelr/drv/st | grep SD
QUANTUM SDLT600
QUANTUM SDLT320

If I missed the drive type sorry :)
 
Cheers,
H

        Hi H,
        
        Always happend in « reading » on all drives in random. it doesn't look
        like it was loding/eject. the 4 drives are on SAN on 2 HBA (2drv/HBA).
        This is what I got from system log(/var/adm/messages) last sunday:

        Objet : RE: [Networker] Drives disable when cloning
        
        Which drives get disabled?  Those used for reading or writing the clone?
        Do those drives same same controller?  Does the error comes during the
        clone operation or during the load and label verification?  Do you see
        anything in system logs (including switches)?
        
        Cheers,
        H
