    Same issue. Loaded latest firmwares, new tapes, new cleaning tape. Ensured jobs were set up correctly. Backup will fail intermittently, and claim new tapes are bad. Drive information 51 comes up on the unit as well as Drive information 40

I think this sounds like the drive is having a issue loading and moving the tape in slot 1.
AIT units are known for having this kind of problem.
Try a cleaning tape and then a new tape fresh out the wrapper for a test backup.

if it fails with a known good tape then its time to send it out for repair

Sony Playstation PS3 Error 80022A07


The error 80022A07 is a widespread problem at the moment and has been happening since 11/11/09. This current error is actually caused by Sonys Servers and they are working on a fix presently.

According to Sony this error is occurring because of "Database and Server Overloads". This is blamed on the large number of Games releases and several updates being released at the moment and is not profile specific.

In other words too many people are using the servers all at one time.

The only thing you can do at present is wait until Sony have resolved the server issue as this is effecting the majority of users at present.

You can be assured that the problem does not lie on your end and hopefully this Tip will save you spending hours looking for a resolution.

Same Problem Again - Mega Raid.... Unknown Error


Hi

The title of your post suggests that you have "Maga RAID" errors. Maga RAID messages would be in line with issues on the LSI PERC sub-system.

However, the extract posted in your suggests network problems.

Any number of physical to driver and configuration issues can result in network problems.

Try the basic checks;
1. Change or try a known patch cable
2. Run "ping" test to a known good system connected to same network switch or direct connect with a "cross-over" cable and check for dropped connections.
3. Is the NIC and switch set to Auto-Negotiation or static at 10, 100 or 1000Mbps speed
4. Can you try another switch
5. Check and load correct or latest manufacture's drivers

AIT ERRORS


I had/have a similar problem with a SONY SDX-700C.
Emailed Sony tech support (very helpful) who suggested sending them the diagnostics from their TapeTool utility (qv). They then recommended running the cleaning tape 3 times, which seems to get it working (but the 'clean me' light still comes on every 7-10 backups). Hope this helps.
