Question about HP (215487B21) AIT-2 Tape Drive
We have a SDLT320 Tape Drive that we backed up a SAN Databse connected to Solaris Box,
The backup took 8 hours, which was ok,
However, the restore is really slow (800kbps) which is about 8 times slower than anticipated, the logs does not show any issues with regards to corrupt date of anything, it is just really slow,
Would love to know what your thoughts are on this and if there is a solution for this slow transfer speed

SOURCE: Tape Drive Block Size
Bit of an odd one but i agree that block size could cause an issue.
Try this link for the HP tech manual for this drive.
It may help with your issue and does detail block size changes on some systems.

SOURCE: Using SDLT cleaning Tape
When the drives Clean LED comes on, install a "Universal" LTO Cleaning tape, as these drives do not need routine cleaning. Only ever clean a LTO drive when it's requested, as the cleaning media itself is more abrasive than a standard tape.

Tape getting struck in media library may not be because of the backup application. Move the media out manually. While filling in the media slots make sure you leave a couple of slots free to avoid the srtuck scenerios..
Please come back and rate my solution if it turns to be helpful for you.
