Re: Dat 72

Maybe you should call HP again?

Maybe your tapes are the problem?

Tapes are new.
I talk with HP and they changes the drive again but sure the drive is ok.

Re: Dat 72

so uh, what is your problem with the drive?

Maybe you could hook us up with a library and tape tools support ticket?

Re: Dat 72

Hi, hmm okay.

So let's see, you have used new tapes and new tape drive, upgraded firmware and it still wants new cleaning?

Did you run cleaning tape a couple of times? Sometimes it's required to clean it.

Maybe the tape drive you got was not brand new?

Is the environment clean? I mean if the server you have the dat72 installed in is very dirty then maybe that's causing it..

I try to clean more than 5 times and extract the drive at a few time.The server is in a standard office (no much dirty but a little dirty,:))
