Symptoms

When the SCSI bus target (the tape drive) is reset when a backup job is running, the backup job aborts. Since the tape drive does not receive the rewind and unload commands from the backup job, it leaves the tape in the drive, causing the drive to be seen as not ready and then be marked offline in the backup application when the next job tries to use the drive.
