I am having issues where backup jobs are not getting started/completed.
I can see in the "jobs" report that there are many attempts (sometimes 50+) to run the job, but it never completes.
I believe the OSB software is looking for a volume that does not exist in the tape library. It's possible that they may have existed at one time (though I'm not sure), but I've run inventory several times and for what ever reason it does not exist anymore. I do not see anything in the "manage->location report ->missing" reports. I've looked in obcleanup and nothing is listed there either.
Is OSB really looking for a volume that doesn't exist, or is something else going on?

Info: 02:35 Info: volume in HPLTO4_2 is usable for this operation.
"device reported incorrect serial number" is the key here.
Your device is misconfigured and the entry for its serial number doesn't match the serial number being reported by the scsi enquiry. Has a drive been replaced? If the drives have swtiched order due to a reboot then I suggest you use /dev/tape/by-id as your attach points rather than direct /dev/sg entries.
