2*MSL6060 with Elevator in Data Protector, how to?

Hi there.
I need help.
I have a running Data Protector 5.5 environment with several MSL 6060s
Two of them have now been configured with an Elevator, one as master, the other one as slave.
Both the MSL6060 used to be configured as stand alone, and were working fine.
The MSL6060 master and slave are aware of each other now after they got to the same firmware level.

I need help with 2 things:

1: How do i open the front on the slave to exchange tapes, the funktion is not available on the slave itself, and on the master at the pull down menu, where to choose master or slave, only the master is listed.

2: How do i configure this "new" device in Data Protector 5.5 (the two libaries both still look the same in DP)
Should they not appear as one libary now?
How do i make them apear as one?

Sincerely

Mikael.
Life sucks, but it sure beats the alternative.

For question 2:

You need to remove the slave library and add 60 slots to the master library.
Do you have a license for more then 60 slots in DP?

I should have since all the MSL6060s were available for DP 5.5 before adding the elevator robotics.

I´ll take a look at that,
any takers for the first issue?

Sincerely

Mikael
