Since the migration, we have this tape drive cleaning error from netbackup and none of the cleaning jobs are successful. Previously, it was working properly in NBU 126.96.36.199 running Solaris 10.
Cleaning tapes still have cycles remaining.

Is it something to do w HW or SW?
Robtest is OK as I can move cleaning media to tape drive and move back.
The EEB patch given to us did resolve the tape drive cleaning issue BUT created another big issue now. It seems to replace the TLDCD and our tape library robot went down every now and then. We have the perform manual restart of Media Manager Daemon to up the service. Every restart will kill all the restore jobs running. This has hugely affected our environment.
The EEB patch is eebinstaller.2917954.1.linuxR_x86
We have reopen the case with Symantec support and upgrade the case to Severity 1 but still no sign of them calling us. The service is really slow and bad nowadays.
Anyone knows of a way to roll back the EEB patch?
All advice will be appreciated.
