MSL8096 Stops writing on all (four) drives when moving one tape to one drive.

Hi,

 

I have an issue with MSL8096 (extended with additional MSL4048).

It has 4 drives, 2 seated in the 8096 and 2 seated in the 4048.

 

It works as it should writing to all drives. However when ever one drive needs a new tape mounted, it stops writing to on all drives until the old tape has been removed and the new moved into position.

 

I can't find any information why this is happening. Is this by-design?

Think it would make more sense to continue writing on the 3 drives that have tapes mounted.

 

I also can't see any reason in my backup-software for this to occur, using Bacula with a very basic configuration setup.

 

Any pointers to why this is happening would be very appreciated, or if it is by-design that it should stop writing across all drives.

 

Thanks in advance,
