mharbour Posted June 11, 2002 Report Share Posted June 11, 2002 I have a Benchmark DLT 7000 autoloader for the primary backup of 20 odd macs, located in an out of the way location but not exactly offsite. I also have a single DLT8000 in the office environment and I would like to use the single drive for file recovery. Can this be done? I have two legitimite copies of Workgroup 5, so... I want to keep the artists off the main backup mac(7000) if at all possible. Did I mention I was one of the artist too? By mounting the backup mac (7000) on the desktop of the 8000, I can access the catalogs, not the current catalog in use but older catalogs, set everything up and when the 7000 tapes are requested and read by the 8000, I get a media erased message. Skipping to the next tape gives the same message. I have verified that the 7000 taped do contain real data. The primary mac is a G4 running 9.2.2 and we just call it the server but no other work is done on/with the machine, and the second is a PowerMac 8500. Are those numbers "1:3" and "2:5", when a tape is in the drive, the amount of compression used by the drives? I am unable to read any of the tapes from the 7000 in the 8000, and vice versa just in-case you wanted to know. The rev. #'s are 3213 for the 7000 and 010C for the 8000. Firmware update? Both drives are listed in the approved hardware list. Any help is most appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
