Re: ReadElementStatus for a Cap ?


What backup software are you using with the 2/20 library ? Also, if the software reports that a Read Element Status command does not work, it probably responded with some SCSI sense data which might be logged. Could you tell us what that sense data was ?

It looks something like

Sensekey (SK)=
Additional Sense code (ASC)=
Additional Sense code qualifier(ASCQ)=

Also, how is your library connected to the host and does the host (if windows) log anything in the system eventlog ?

Re: ReadElementStatus for a Cap ?

Thanks u for your answer !! in fact its my own software that I develop ... I think I have resolved the problem .... When the Cap is closed ... the system has to wait for 10 seconde before doing a ReadElementStatus ... else the result is heratic .... regards, E
