Surestore 24x6 configuration

Tape 6 is normally used for the cleaning tape.

With a revived drive it has not been set as such.
Does anybody knows how to set this tape out of 6 to be the cleaning tape ?

Re: Surestore 24x6 configuration

Ruud,

That depends on the backup software you're using.
The cleaning slot is not defined by the autoloader itself on a dat 24x6 but by the backup software.
If you're running arcserve or backupexec you need to reconfigure the autochanger option to get slot6 to be a cleaning slot again.

Hope this helps, provide more info about your configuration if you want more help.

Marco.
