Question about HP StorageWorks MSL4048 1 LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 FC Tape Library (AJ036A) Tape Drive

1 Answer

Fiber channel backup problems

Backups will not run. specifically NAS/ndmp jobs. When they fail they cause the switch ports to disable due to bit rate errors exceeded threshold. Library is actually an HP 8096/8048. (could not find it in the list) All devices connected to cisco fabric switch 9148. Jobs fail with a connection/IO error. Backups run fine if library and drives are connected to the windows backup server directly. All drivers/firmware have been updated. Tried two different backup applications, cables replaced, gbics replaced. Behaviour the same.

RDX tape drives, by HP (tandenberg)

i bet the tape drive, logs errors, if you look,
the driver software will log that, and you can see why the tape
failed, my guess, damage to the tape, end to end.
try fresh new tape, NEW in a box, not used.

How to Rip Wii Backups: VIDEO GUIDE HERE>>> Making backups of your Nintendo Wii...


How to Rip Wii Backups: VIDEO GUIDE HERE>>>
Making backups of your Nintendo Wii games is a great investment that will likely save you some money. You will need a Wii running Homebrew to rip and then play your Wii backups. So, before attempting the actual backup get the Homebrew channel up and running. Having a Homebrew-capable Wii means that your console is able to play user created programs and games that are not Nintendo signed. This is legal, but cannot be taught here for copyright reasons (see Resources for more information).

Step 1 Turn on your Nintendo Wii and allow it to boot into your Wii dashboard. Insert your external hard drive into an open USB slot or insert your Wii SD card. Use the Wiimote to select the "Homebrew" channel and you will be shown the available Homebrew programs.
  • Step 2 Select "DVD Dumper" from the Homebrew channel. Press the "A" button to verify that you want to backup the game to your external hard drive or SD card. Press the right directional pad button until the screen says "Wii Single-Layer Disc" and press the "A" button.
  • Step 3 Insert your Wii game into the optical drive. Your Wii will read the disc and will ask you to press the "A" button to begin the rip. Press the "A" button and your Wii game will be placed onto the external hard drive or SD card.
  • Step 4 Wait as the process completes. DVD Dumper will tell you when the process is complete and you can exit the program. You can now use your Wii backups to play games from your external hard drive or SD card. You will need a program like "USBLoader" to play these backups (see Resources).

    Delete unwanted NTI backups.


    1. Open the windows explorer and navigate to where the backups are.
    2. Switch your view to details
    3. See which backups are the newest, don't delete them
    4. Delete the rest.
    5. Configure the Backup process to make fewer backups, like once per month, or one full, then several incremental ones.

    Hitachi backup saysproblem in windows 7 due to bit locker


    You will always have problems to backup encripted drives, unless the backup software specifically supports the encryption software.

    Usually you can to try to "mount" the drive as a unencrypted drive and run the backup on that drive.

    Alternatively, use HD partition backup software (ex: DriveSnapshot, EaseUS, Paragon, etc...).

    Nss4000 with home computer quad core 2.4mghz 8 g ram. all rj45 connections are gigabit transfer speed between computer and nas is 11MB/s what should the tfr speed be? Should I be using cat 6...


    Your speed is going to be limited by your slowest component. Most cables you buy in a store are really cat 5e which will do 1000Mbps. If your getting 11MBps (~100Mbps) then something in your network is running at 100Mbps. Assuming your going from Computer -> Router -> Nas
    Computer needs a 1Gbps NIC in it, you need at least a cat 5e cable to router, router needs to support 1Gbps bandwidth, cable from router to nas needs to be at least cat 5e and your nic on nas needs to support 1Gbps as well.
    So check the spec's on each device and replace the bottleneck because I doubt you can find regular cat 5 unless you tried really hard :)
    If you can't find the specs comment back with all three model #s

    Fastora NAS-104WR


    It all depends on how mission critical this NVR is, (and how much money you have to spend)


    A good rule of thumb is the more redundancy the better, so in theory, if you have the money, you should buy the second NVR, however if you cant afford an entire second unit, you should look at doing hard drive backups of that unit.

    If you have any more question, please let me know!

    Thanks,

    "error starting the service Backup Exec & media service"


    This is most likely caused by a change in the user acount password that you created the profile with. Under network select Logon account Managment. in here you will see the accounts that you used to login to the Domain. (AD) Consider setting up separate accounts (backup, etc) for these services & scheduled jobs, rather than using the admin or personal accounts. This way you can still change the admin account password on a regular basis & maintain security, but not have to go the hassle of updating all of these at each change. You may also opt to set these specific accounts so that the passwords do not expire automatically so that you do not have to deal with that scenario.

    Error copying file or folder


    One of the most important yet overlooked elements of PC maintenance is data backup. If you do not perform regular backups, chances are your productivity will eventually suffer from data losses or a failed Windows installation.

    All versions of Windows after 3.1 ship with a free backup utility called Microsoft Backup. It is not the best backup program available, but it may be sufficient for your needs. (Backup is better in later versions of Windows. Microsoft recommends Win98/Me users purchase a third-party utility.) If you want more control over your backups, consider purchasing a third-party program.

    Backup is part of the System Tools utility. However, Setup does not install it by default in Win98/Me/XP Home. If you cannot locate Backup, visit the Microsoft support site and query for article No. 152561 (Win98), No. 264541 (WinMe), or No. 302894 (WinXP Home).

    In Win98/Me, click Start, select Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and click Backup. To create and run a backup, click the Create A New Backup Job radio button and click OK. Follow the prompts to create a full or partial backup. If you want to create a backup set and run it later or run an existing backup set, open Backup and click the Open An Existing Backup Job radio button and click OK. You can now access the main Backup dialog box.

    In Win2000/XP, navigate to the System Tools utility and select Backup. Click the Backup Wizard button. If you do not see a Backup Wizard button, click the Welcome tab. In WinXP, the wizard will start automatically if you are in wizard mode. Follow the prompts to create your backup set.

    When you reach the last dialog box, Completing The Backup Wizard, you can click the Advanced button to create a backup schedule (this option is not available in Win98/Me). When you reach the When To Back Up dialog box, select the Later radio button and click the Set Schedule button. Perform data backups on a schedule that is appropriate to the importance of your files (once a week is a common timeframe). You should also perform a system backup at least once a month.

    If you do not want to use the wizard, or you are working with an existing backup, open Backup and click the Backup tab to access the main Backup dialog box.

    Sn 3250 router problem


    Ok, I'm confused... are you sure this isn't router that you're mentioning isn't a SAN Switch? A StorageTek/Brocade 3250 switch... and this is a StorageTek Scalar 100 Tape Library with Fibre aware LTO Drives. The Library Users Manual can be found at http://downloads.quantum.com/scalar/S100/omS100UsersGuide.pdf. Switch information can be found at http://www.storagetek.com/products/product_page2304.html. I'm not a Sun guy, so I would suggest that you contact them to find out which versions of firmware for the switch that they have certified. With HP, there are certain versions of firmware that they certify with HPUX... and specific versions of HBA drivers that work better with HPUX as well. If it is, in fact a Brocade 3250, I would suggest that you start with a "switchshow"... figure out which port drive 4 attaches to... do a "porterrshow #" (# represents the port found) to see the port error statistics... you want to check the loss of signal and link failure count. I would do an "sfpshow #" to see the status of the transciever as well. Let us know.
