On Seagate CTT8000-A (ATAPI) tape drives, when you start Ntbackup.exe, the LED activity indicator light on the tape drive lights up and stays continuously lit, even after exiting NTBACKUP. The LED will remain lit even if there is no activity from the drive. The LED will only go out if you eject the tape and re-insert it. The symptom will show up each time you execute Ntbackup.exe.
When NTBACKUP exits, it issues a REWIND IMMEDIATE, which ATAPI drives do not support.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
