[Veritas-bu] Drive downing (bptm?)

We use DLT IV tapes in our DLT 7000 tape drives.
This tape library ran sweet for a year, until
it overused a DLT cleaning tape because the cleaning
count threshold had not been set. StorageTek has
since set the cleaning tape threshold, and we sort
of suspected that there may be contaminated tapes
in the library. We are watching for media errors,
and if we feel the tape error rate is excessive, then
we will call StorageTek in to look at the tape drives.

Then there should be no reason for NetBackup to down 10 drives! We got
annoyed enough when it downed 3 but Veritas told us this would not happen
in 3.4 and sure enough, it hasn't!
Can there be some other underlying problem? Something with the
mediatype? recognition of tapes? anything like that?
What media do you use?
There are two major products that come out of Berkeley:
LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence. -- Jeremy S.
