This is what HP recommends:
I know that it is long but I think this is what you are looking for. Are you using Veritas Backup Exec?
From reading your error message and Veritas support docs, it might appear you are using the wrong driver for your unit. You might want to check this.
Also, it is possible you are getting SCSI bus timeout problems. See this link:
See this for proper configuration of your SCSI card and the 1555:
General help from Veritas regarding error message:
Also, have you tried the backups without hardware or any compression? If this works, then you can narrow it down to the compression process.
Also, have you tried using Windows backup software to see if you get the same error messages? Windows backup software will not use hardware compression in most drives. But it would be worth the test to see if it may be a software issue. This would definitely pinpoint a driver issue with the Backup Exec software.
I hope this gets you thinking. I appologize if I am not much help. I do not use the Backup Exec software and typically use Travan (T-5) tape. Little slower, gets the job done.
I am very interested in your solution so please keep in touch! Thanks!
