Re: Drive 1 stusk tape

you can have this behavior when the drive loose communication with the host. in this case the tape appear stucked because it was set "reserved" from the host, and if the communication has been lost, the only way to recover is a hard reset of the drive, this will clear the flag and allow you to eject the tape.
Now you need to investigate what can cause the host to lost the drive, this may due to several causes, like i/o error on the scsi path, other software polling the device, bad cable or terminator, defective Drive, power issues, etc.

you should check all the environment to identify the cause
