Cleaning tape on MSL6060 does not dismount


I have DP 6.11 running and has cleaning tape in 58th slot. When drive is dirty, system automatically mounts cleaning tape but system never dismounts cleaning tape after cleanup.


This causes other subsequent backup on that drive to fail.



How can I setup system to automatically dismount cleaning tape? How can I fix it?

Hi vz7r1x,


Open the DP GUI, switch to devices & media and right-click the library name and select properties.


On the control tab set the "busy drive handling" to Eject Medium and apply the change.


Now in future DP will unmount the cleaning tape if its still loaded instead of aborting the new backup
