MSL5026 inventory slow

I have a MSL 5026 with two drives. One of my tape drive got faulty and I replaced it. My other tape drive is also faulty for which I am awaiting replacement, therefore I have disabled it from the front panel. I use Veritas 9.1. My cables are connected as Single host dual drives.

Now, when I run the inventory for my magazine which has being loaded with 3 tapes, takes about 18minutes to complete.

I have updated the firmwares for Robotics library and the tape drives.

Please help

Use a barcode scan to perform the inventory, this is much faster.

Re: MSL5026 inventory slow

And what tape drive you've got? DLT/SDLT/LTO?

For DLT/SDLT, a load/scan/unload takes about 5 minutes. LTO is faster, there it will be 2 minutes for a tape.
