Problem

Optimized Duplication job fails during verify with error "Storage device 'Mediaserver-Dedup:x' reported an error on a request to read data from media"

Error Message

0x17V-79-57344-34028 - A backup storage read/write error has occurred.

"Storage device 'Mediaserver-Dedup:x' reported an error on a request to read data from media"

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.
