this is happening for all of our 11iv3 clients where we have installed powerpath emc software .CM . Win2008 R2.
Was this working before you installed PowerPath? This is the 2nd time in 3 days where is handled an issue where it looks like PowerPath is affecting Data Protector, with pretty much the same symptoms
After reboot of tape library & Cell Manager all is fine now.
