A quick question

I am having the following errors in syslog. Can some one please explain them in more detail:

Jun 16 11:09:21 apple EMS [1324]: ------ EMS Event Notification ------ Value: "CRITICAL (5)" for Resource: "/storage/events/tapes/SCSI_tape/8_20_5_7.6.0" (Threshold: >= " 3") Execute the following command to obtain event details: /opt/resmon/bin/resdata -R 86769697 -r /storage/events/tapes/SCSI_tape/8_20_5_7.6.0 -n 86769821 -a

Re: A quick question

Try using the drive again, with a new tape, and see if you get an error. If you do, log a hardware call with HP and get the drive replaced. If not, keep using it.

Re: A quick question

A quick answer:

The reason is either a real problem with the tape or drive or a false alert - consider the age of the diags -> Dec 2001.

Hope this helps!

Suggest running a quick check on the tape drive using stm (cstm, mstm or xstm). It is reporting hardware errors.

Re: A quick question

Razi,

As this is a tape drive problem.

check the cable connections on either side
any lights on the tape drive, any blinking, yellow/orange lights

check the status of the tape
mt /dev/rmt/0mn status
mt /dev/rmt/0mn rewoffl

put an EMPTY tape and tar some files to tape
are you able to tar cvf /dev/rmt/0mn /tmp/*.txt

try listing

tar tvf /dev/rmt/0mn
