I am having a huge problem getting my backup tape to function correctly.
Backup and catalog jobs end with error: the data being read from the media is inconsistent.
I have tried everything humanly possible, read through countless articles. I have had both the tape device and tape cartridges swapped with new ones, all to no avail.
IBM system storage TS2230 tape drive
IBM total storage LTO Ultrium 400GB data cartridges.
Symantec Backup Exec 12.0 SP1 fully updated
Windows server 2003

I really hope someone can point me in the right direction. I have spent countless hours on this problem.

Thanks in advance!
