Data Protector does not see a new tape

Hello

I have a MSL 6030 tape drive. When I remove a tape and add a new tape to the MSL. I am having some problems with Data Protector and the MSL seeing the tape correctly. The tape shows up black on the OCP vs displaying the bar code, and if I browse to the library some times I see the tape ok other times the bar code does not show up it is blank in the browser. On the Data Protector side the slot shows up empty. If I do a scan of the tape drive the tape will show up correctly in DP and the MSL.

The library has the current firmware installed and I running 5.5, without the current patches.


Thanks

You have a problem with your library.
This must be solved before you can see it good in DP.

Try with the lastest firmwares

There are two threads onpen on the exact same problem.

Please see my response on your other thread.

I suggest closing one of these threads to avoid confusion.

Thanks,
