Hello,

Look like problem with stape device driver.

Please provide #ioscan -fnC tape o/p.

Also check scsi / Fiber card driver version

Sorry Sudhakar and Victor..

I couldn't check this thread...

Please see the ioscan and fc card driver details.

# dmesg|head

Oct 30 12:57
...
r = 5
stape_close: st_close_error = 5
stape_close: st_close_error = 5
stape_close: st_close_error = 5
stape_close: st_close_error = 5
stape_close: st_close_error = 5
stape_close: st_close_error = 5

I have attached ioscan,fcmsutil outputs in a file.
