davidray Posted October 24, 2007 Report Share Posted October 24, 2007 Hi I am having issues while backing up an Xserve 10.4.10, that hopefully someone can shed some light on. Every backup we run generates reams of errors during verification into the error log, of the form: Trouble reading: “1-Monday-Wednesday” (443858), error 212 (media erased). Bad backup set header found (0x3f7a1f3b at 425,935). Bad backup set header found (0x29333439 at 425,936). Bad backup set header found (0x7a3b2d3b at 425,941). Bad backup set header found (0x078d0875 at 425,949). Bad backup set header found (0x071f0703 at 425,973). Sometimes the backup completes, other times it fails. The last error message before failure is: Trouble positioning: “1-Monday-Wednesday” (443858), error 109 (unexpected filemark or FTP end of file). We run three backup scripts, with different tapes, on alternate days, all generate the same messages. We backup the internal hard disk of the server and an attached RAID, partitioned twice. The error messages can appear while backing up any of the drives/partitions. I have used Retrospect for many years in different configurations, different drives and platforms, and have never seen messages like this before, so am thinking this maybe a hardware issue? The configuration is an Xserve with dual channel U-320 SCSI card. One channel connected to a HP LTO-3 external drive, the other channel connects to a hardware raid controller. Retrospect is patched to the latest level with the advanced driver update. Thanks in advanc D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
