To make it easier to find information about HPE Storage products and solutions, we are doing spring cleaning. This includes consolidation of some older boards, and a simpler structure that more accurately reflects how people use HPE Storage.

35/70 sometimes grabs same tape.....

Our DLT 35/70 will sometimes grab the tape it just wrote to then displays the error "media already contains data from this job". Then aborts. When this happens, both drives only write to one tape, then ejects it, then grabs it again. There are 13 other blank tapes in the library that it can use. All tapes are always erased prior to using. This problem is not all the time. Running Veritas 7.3 on Win NT, SP6a

Try updating the firmware on the DLT Library ...
