LTO-5 or 3 Label for LTO-6 Cartridge possible?

Hi,

 

I have

 

HP LTO-6 Ultrium 6.25 TB MP RW Non-Custom Labeled Data Cartridge (20 pack) 6.25 TB HP C7976AN

Cartridges

 

I still have old LTO-3 RW Labels can I use them on that new LTO-6 Carts?

 

Even my shops have not the LTO-6 Labels. So can I use instead the LTO-5 Labels like this?
HP LTO5 Ultrium RW Automation Barcode-Labels 100 Stück  - [Herst.Nr.: Q2011A]

 

Thx in Advance

Depends on the library. Some assume the medium is of the type the label says, in other words the lib detects a LTO 3 tape and will say this cannot be used in a LTO 6 drive.


Hope this helps!

It's the MSL2024.

IIRC this library will just scan the label and inventory the tapes as LTO 3 with these labels. Use the correct labels!


Hope this helps!
