W2K using Backup Exec 8.6

By philldmc ·
I am having a nightmare of a time using Backup Exec. It worked fine for a year and as fate would have it the service contract expired and now I'm having problems.

What is happening is during a scheduled/or non scheduled backup it will cancel itself during the verify process. Below is a small porton of the log file:
=================================================
Media Name: "Media Created 4/4/2003 08:00:08 PM"
Backup of "\\EVE\System?State"
Backup set #3 on storage media #1
Backup setdescription: "EVE Backup"
Backup Type: Full - Back Up Files - Reset Archive Bit
Backup started on 4/4/2003 at 9:10:48 PM.
Backed up 2024 files in 96 Directories.
Processed 290,736,684 bytes in 4 minutes and 26 seconds.
Throughput rate: 62.5MB/min
Software Compression ratio: 2:1
=================================================
Job Operation - Verify
=================================================
Job ended: Friday, April 4, 2003 at 9:15:43 PM
Job Completion Status: Canceled by\
=================================================
(end of report)

The log is not telling me anything on why it is being canceled and not telling me who canceled it and why the verify is not happening.

I have tested the tape drive with the W2K version of back up and it works fine. I have tested the drive with the seagate tools and tested each time with 2GB of data and everything tested fine....

What am I missing.... HELP!

Thank you for the link to the post, but no one has responded to the question. It appears no one knows the problem but Veritas....

shot in the blue : what tells the event monitor for this time? can you try without risk the trial of Ver.9.0 of Veritas?

I had to update the pnp drivers for the tape drive. Once I did this the problem went away.
