Tape Drive

Hi Guys,

Could anyone tell me if this status below says the drive is faulty? or It just need a tape media to be place in the drive?

Re: Tape Drive

Hi,

I'd guess that a tape just needs mounting.

As it's a TZ88, probably a tape has been unmounted, but the handle not operated to remove the tape from the drive...

Cheers,

Re: Tape Drive

I cannot tell if the drive has a problem.

Do you have physical access to the device? Can you check the device LEDs?

You can also diagnose problems using HP Library and Tape tools (LT&T).

First, rry cleaning the tape and replace the media.

Re: Tape Drive

Hello

This line "media_status 0x10001" would mean there is not tape in drive, but since you get this : "ASC/ASQ = 4/0 LUN Not ready, cause not reportable", and you have some confidence there should be a tape in the drive , then something is wrong with the drive. Try the logs, eventually uerf.
