MSL6000 Backup Error

Hello,

I am getting attached errors while trying to do a backup or format a tape.
Before this error occured for the first time last week, my client was doing backups just fine.
My understanding is that the robot could have a problem but then I'm not very sure.
Does anyone have a clue what could be the precise reason for this?
Kind regards,
Rianui

Shalom Rianui,

In my view its a hardware problem.

Try a complete power off/power on, but it looks like a hardware call to me.

Hello,

Thanks Steven. I figured that it was a hardware issue.

Sahir, I'll need to go and check again. Last time I checked, I did it over the net while the tape was in the server room.
I'll post a reply soon.

Regards,

Rianui.

Re: MSL6000 Backup Error

Hello Sahir,

Apologies for that.
The drive does not have any error displayed on the LCD screen.
The "Discover changed SCSI addresses" box is selected as well.
