Has anyone run across status 84 crc errors on a VTL? We had a flurry of about 9 status 84 errors this weekend. The errors ran across 5 different media servers, 2 different VTL's (EMC DL3D 3000's), 9 different VTL drives, 6 different clients running Unix, Windows and NDMP backups.
The only significant factor I see is that they mostly occurred with 14 minutes. The 2 ndmp backup failures occurred 2 1/2 hours later.
The only troubleshooting step that could possibly relate to a VTL would be corrupt drivers. Given how several hundred other backups ran just fine on those same media servers, I don't see how that is the case.
The other thing is that these failures occurred during peak backup times. Will the VTL's return status 84's if they get overloaded? I'm a bit baffled on this one.
The only root cause I can imagine for a status code 84 on a VTL would be if it ran out of bac end disk space.
Nope. Not out of disk space.
Did the tape drives return some sort of SCSI sense key ?
