BD 01 error - HP StorageWorks 1/8 Tape Autoloader with an Ultrium 960 Drive

recently i encounter this error in the middle of the backup on the autoloader LCD display : BD 01.

And the tape status will then later turn to poor status and all backup fail.

Can anyone advice on this?

looks like the communication between the loader and the drive has a problem.
Try to power cycle the unit

Hi Marino,

Previously u told me to power cycle the unit, how am i go about to do that?

I restart the autoloader and it gone. after one week it happens again.
SCSI Connection between the autoloader and the server have already tighten.

Do u know why is it like this?

I do not know why this occurs, and the communication error in internaly on the dedicated bus. This may occurs due to multiple factors, a defective unit, or a busy drive, or power/grounding problems.
just be sure to have the latest FW installed on both the drive and the autoloader

I know that the SCSI connection will cause that error, but so will the status Identifier cable being unplugged. Ensure the small (usually 5 or 6 wire) connector is plugged in as well
