Re: Getting this error message on MSL2024 Tape Drive

The short answer for 8D/07 (Mechanical Block, Error during sled movement to rotation position) is to take out the shipping lock.

If it isn't the shipping lock and you just moved the library it might have been moved without removing the tapes and one fell out blocking the robot.

The above pointer was very helpful and if you follow the "Answers from experts" link and go through the troubleshooting tree it takes you to both these suggestions. Since I've seen several postings for the 8D/07 I decided to put the quick answer here so maybe people can find it searching.

Re: Getting this error message on MSL2024 Tape Drive

Did you take the magazines out or the tapes out before moving the autoloader?

If a 1/8 G2 is moves without taking the tapes out before moving it an 8D frequently occurs because a tape fell out into the path of the transport.
