Autoload problem


I'm running a DL580 with a TL891DLX with 2 DLT 40/80 drives. I've installed BE8.5 Build 3572 and the Autoloader Module.

BE recognizes the library and also the tapes in the slots. However, when I label the media, only DLT 1 is used. Is this normal behaviour? I would expect the library to use both DLT units simultaneously if I want to label more than 1 tape.

Re: Autoload problem

Unfortunetly this is absolutly normal, there is no possibility to use more than one tape drive to do an inventory or a label operation with BE. I discuss with Veritas software on this point and they confirm the situation. I suggest them to implemente this function in a future version, but I have no confirmation. I am a trainer on this product and this is a very classical problem. This is a very important problem when usin an ESL9326D
Have a nice day
