MSL6030 Master/Slave issue

I have 3 MSL6030 tape Libraries connectected via a PTM. My Slave 0 front panel quit working. HP replaced the entire MSL6030. I now cannot get the Master to come up as the Master. I configure for Master but it doesn't say it on the front panel. The 2 Slaves only say Slave not Slave 0 and Slave 1. I can swap the Master with Slave 0 then I can configure Master and it says Master. But upon power on the MSL6030 that was my Master now just has a blinking red front panel light. Appreciate any answers.

Re: MSL6030 Master/Slave issue

Thanks for the info. Verified everything was hooked up as the manual says. We think we received a defective chassis. Waiting for HP to reply to service request.

A possible reason could be the network hub. Check the cables and try another if possible. This is a very special hub, so connect the cables to the appropriate ports.

Hope this helps!

Re: MSL6030 Master/Slave issue

I've tried all new cables. Connected them back the same as before HP replaced the Slave 0 chassis. I don't have another hub to try. The only problem we had was the slave 0 chassis front panel wasn't working. After the chassis was replaced we are now not able to get the master to actually say master on the front panel. Also the 2 slave units only say slave versus slave0 and slave1. The only difference I see is that the new chassis has a Boot Code 4. The other 2 have a Boot Code of 3.

Re: MSL6030 Master/Slave issue

Another reason could be the PTM - does it move for selftest while powering on?

Hope this helps!

Re: MSL6030 Master/Slave issue

The issue ended up being the MSL6030 connected as the Master. Replaced the MSL6030 and things are looking correct now. Thanks for all of the suggestions.
