Thanks for the response. When I get to work on monday I will post some logs.
Yes, I am getting checksum errors (I want to say event ID 477 - will check on
monday) on days with the bad backups. On days with good backups = no checksum
What kind of hardware problem do you think it might be? It's a brand new
system (once again, will get stats on monday) with a built in adaptec SCSI
controller using a 4 drive raid5 config. I also just ran a "verify" on the
array (using adaptec software).
What gets me is the lack of consistancy - it works OK for a while, then a day
or two of bad backups, then works fine again.
