OSB on Solaris 11.1

Two questions.
1. Both Oracle Secure Backup and Oracle Secure Backup Express for x86 Solaris download the same file.
Is there no difference on Solaris?

2. Have installed and configured sgen driver and tapes can be labelled OK and the first backup works
BUT
appending the next backup to the tape I get the following.
Space to EOD.
BSR
Device says it is offline

    As stated in the OSB FAQ, there is no difference technically between OSB and OSB Express...only difference is licensing:
    Licensing doc: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E26569_01/doc.104/e21478/toc.htm

    Please describe your hardware setup and provide full lsdev outputs so we can investigate.

    Thanks
