Problem Description
The verify failed with an error 25.
This error is caused by the edge.index program failing due to either a missing or corrupt database, or an unexpected end of media error.
This may initially be remedied by cleaning the tape drive or the introduction of new media into the backup routine.

If this offers no relief, turn off indexing and attempt to verify the tape again. If this succeeds, run the following command from the command line.

/usr/lib/edge/bin/edge.index -b {block factor} -d {tape device}
