C5713A SureStore 40X6 DAT tape library error

C5713A SureStore 40X6 DAT tape library error

I am getting the following error when I try to move the tape from the drive to a slot:

Could not perform move medium : Rewind command failed: 3,

I can't find this error referenced in the manual or on the 'net. Has anyone seen this? Any suggestions?

I have to eject the entire magazine to get it reset. I've written to the tape with a no rewind e.g. /dev/rmt/0mn

This is attached to an N-Class running 11.11

Hi,
if the error message is not in the manual or on the web, chances are it is from an application.

Check your backup script to see whether the return code from commands is caught and the above message produced.

Thanks! That's a good place to look. However, I'm using the HP utility, not a script, to manage the library for now. It's the hp_tll command that brings up a text menu. I'll research that instead of the hardware itself. Much appreciated.
