Cleaning Light TL800 Dectection

Hi,

we use 3 Robots to do the backup DEC TL800 (TL982). Is there a way to "see" when a cleaning tape is wanted.?
I like to start a cleaning job when the backup is finished.
(We use OpenVMS V7.2-2 and OpenVMS V7.3-1)

Thanks

Yes, there is a "Use Cleaner" yellow indicator on the loader front panel. If you have 2 drives, then you should use the "Cleaning Needed" selection on the drive status submenu to determine which drive actually needs cleaning.

Re: Cleaning Light TL800 Dectection

Sorry, I want to clear with my question. The system is not close to my. (Europa / USA)
I like to know if there is a way of detection, Robot tells me, the cleaning light is on.
The robot is "Media Robot Utility V1.4-1" and the application we use is SLS (StorageLibarySystem for HP)

Thanks

Re: Cleaning Light TL800 Dectection

Look to see what output you get with the following commands:
SHOW ROBOT
SHOW DRIVE

Those are the only commands I could see that might show cleaning status. Unfortunately I don't have one to try it out on and tell you for sure.
