Backup error message

We are using Novell Netware 4.11. For the last 10 days, I've been getting the following error message during Sbackup:

(SBACKUP 4.20 - 110) An error occurred during Sbackup attempt to write to media:(SMSDI V1.0 275) Media Manager reported a failure when attempting the requested read or write operation. This backup session terminated with errors.

I'm having this error message after the 100th page in Sbackup.


I keep track of a lot of different combinations of software and operating systems but I haven't use Sbackup on Novell. Without knowing the product, it sounds like an I/O problem with the tape drive. I would check the system logs for I/O errors and then try running your own backup to that tape drive using some other program. Try one of the free backup utilities at http://www.netwarefiles.com/backup.htm.
