Hi, on our HP Sure Store Tape Autoloader we are getting the message: "Loader Partly Available". Please advise how to remove this error.

Thanks

Shalom,

Check the warning lights and act accordingly. This reminds me of a time when one of the two tape drives in ours was failed.

Turns out it needed cleaning. There are some command line instructions to load a cleaning tape and run a cleaning job. After that all was OK.
