We have a 3573 L2U drive which we are using as a standalone tape drive. Our backup jobs started running nearly twice longer than our normal run time last week. IBM SSR replaced the drive, cable and terminator. However, still after replacing, backup still ran long. Do you have any idea what is causind this long backup run?
Here is the drive status/identity including the firmware version,
