Flexbackup errors....... Need help please!

I have a Redhat 7.3 Server running at the office using flexbackup to run my nightly tapes (DLT 7000) and I keep getting this error after replacing tape drive, trying new tapes, using a cleaning tape and rebooting the system.

Here is the error that I am getting:

afio: "-" [offset 2m+256k+0]: Fatal error:
afio: "-": Broken pipe
| Backup start: Fri Mar 07 09:18:47 2003
| Backup end: Fri Mar 07 09:18:58 2003
/dev/st0: Input/output error
mt: The device is offline (not powered on, no tape ?).
| Rewinding...
/dev/st0: Input/output error
mt: The device is offline (not powered on, no tape ?).
| Compressing log (mnt-array.0.20030307.gz)
| Linking mnt-array.latest.gz -> mnt-array.0.20030307.gz

I need help trying to figure out why I can't get this thing to backup. Also how do you get flexbackup to span between two DLT 7000 tapes?

Have you tried or mailing This may be a Flexbackup specific problem rather than a Linux issue.
