My tape backup system locks up when backing up a perticular database to
tape. The SQL error logs the following error:
"dpdb_read complete: operating system error 1 (incorrect function)
I have no problems accessing the database.
Other databases backup to the same tape device just fine.
The database is 160MB, tape device is 2GB
Ran DBCC commands until the cows come home.
SQL Server 6.5 service pack 2.
Anyone have any clues on what's going on.
