Fail to catalogue tape

Veeam Logoby chauk2 » Thu Oct 22, 2015 6:54 am

Hi guy,

We have finished a tape job successfully without errors. Then we eject the tape and inject it again. After that, we inventory and catalogue it.
However, the below error prompted during the catalogue process. Any idea for this...? The tape and the library are new.

Hello chauk2,

Kindly open a support case and post a case ID to this thread as this behavior does not look like expected. Thanks

P.S. Make sure you are up to date with the latest available Update 3.

Hi chauk2,

I do see that the case was closed and you were able to get it resolved by replacing the SAS cable. Is that correct?
