I'm trying to find out why st32 type errors keep arriving in
/var/adm/messages (and are sent almost every day to my inbox by a Log
Alert auto email).


Can you tell me if there's a problem with the tape device or can you
give me a link where I should post this request?


About 3 times a week I'm seeing this, just after the backup to tape
starts and one second before it finishes.
