Re: Tape drives in scan status

Are all the tape drives doing this or only certain ones?

Re: Tape drives in scan status

SCAN means another ioscan operation is running.

From the ioscan man page:
SCAN
a scan operation is in progress for this node

If you see the status of scan, check the process table and see if there is another ioscan running.

ps -ef |grep ioscan

Re: Tape drives in scan status

As said above, SCAN means another ioscan is running currently (either from another user/session or from diagnostics.

Some minutes later you should get a different status - try again.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
