Problem

Opt-Dedup job fails with error “Final error: 0xe00084ec - A backup storage read/write error has occurred.”

Error Message

Final error: 0xe00084ec - A backup storage read/write error has occurred.

If the storage is tape based, this is usually caused by dirty read/write heads
in the tape drive.  Clean the tape drive, and then try the job again.  If the
problem persists, try a different tape.  You may also need to check for
problems with cables, termination, or other hardware issues.

If the storage is disk based, check that the storage subsystem is functioning
properly.  Review any system logs or vendor specific logs associated with the
storage to help determine the source of the problem.  You may also want to
check any vendor specific documentation for troubleshooting recommendations.
