Re: cann't unload driver

Using the 'mc' command you should be able
to manipulate the devices.

e.g.
Take the drive offline
# mt -t /dev/rmt/1m offl
Move the tape from the drive to a slot
# mc -p /dev/robot -sD1 -dS1
To inspect the whole unit
# mc -p /dev/robot -r IDSM
(change to your device for the robot arm)

If none of these work, you can force the
door open usinf the menu's and remove the tape, which it could be stuck in between the drive and a slot.

Re: cann't unload driver

More information:

To override the door do this from the front panel:

Press next until you see 'admin'
You will then see
PSWD 000 000 000
Press enter until you see 'info'
Press next until you see 'override door'
Press enter, door should open.
Retrieve you tape and close the door, the
unit should reset itself.
