[Networker] SCSI reset on HP equiment
I am having a lot of troubles with SCSI resets on my backup, which causes
Legato to produce backups with "holes" in.
I have a HP 5000 SAN and 2 MSL 6030 libaries, and 7 storage nodes.
All is running Windows 2000/2003
The Legato version is 7.1.2
My HBA's are Emulex and Qlogic.
-The Qlogic HBA's are setup to persisten binding with Qlogic's SANSURFER
Zones created on the SAN switch, which only holds the backupserver, the libarys
and the storagenodes.
What I can see happening is that through the night when the backup is running,
I sometimes gets a "SCSI reset" command send to the tapedrives, this causes
them to rewind the tape, this is unvisible to Legato, so when the tapedrives
are rewinding the tapes, Legato still thinks all is fine and continues to write
to the tape, allthough it now is positioned to the start. So when I later try
to check the tape with "scanner -nv", it gives:
scanner: Reading the label done
scanner: SYSTEM error: Tape label read for volume ? in pool ?, is not
recognised by Networker: unknown error 234 (0xea)
Is there anyone on the list that has had this problem and solved it?
