I take it you have a DLT autochanger and are attempting to move tapes around ?

If so, any SCSI errors you are receiving could possibly be a hardware problem but the first thing to check is you have the latest SCSI patches as usually its a patch issue. Have you the latest patches for your DLT7000 or latest SCSI patches ?

From the latest June GR patch bundle the SCSI patch numbers are;

# PHCO_19640 1.0 Manual page for SCSI passthru device
# PHKL_17358 1.0 Enable SCSI floppy for 64 bit computers
# PHKL_18543 1.0 PM/VM/UFS/async/scsi/io/DMAPI/JFS/perf patch
# PHKL_22759 1.0 SCSI IO Subsystem Cumulative Patch
PHKL_22759.SPT2-DVR 1.0 SCSI-Passthru.SPT2-DVR
PHKL_22759.SPT2-DVR 1.0 SCSI-Passthru.SPT2-DVR
# PHKL_22856 1.0 SCSI Tape (stape) cumulative

The one which looks vital for an autochanger is the Passthru patch (PHKL_22759) but I would install all the latest SCSI patches above first and see if that fixes your problem.

I've seen a similar error when doing a diskinfo on the device file for a cdrom when there was no cdrom present in the drive.

Ensure that the device file/h/w is present and claimed.

It works for me (tm)

Hi, Carme, How are you?
I'm agree with my colleagues responses.
If you want, you can phone to your old friends in your old company. They will help you, sure.

Best regards !

ehhhhhh!!!!! Hola David!!!!....
Como est?s???...
Al final parece ser que son estas DLT-7000 las que tienen algun defectillo de fabrica.... y la soluci?n que he hecho (y parece ser que "pirula") es trabajar en el slot 2 (pues el 1 no acaba de ir bien)
Un abrazote!!!
Carmen.
------------------------------------------

I have change the slot 1 to the 2 and actually its working ok.
Thank you very much to all.
Carme.

Re: ERROR: 0x0 No Sense : 0x0 No additional sense information

A lot of the larger tape libraries (and a few of the tape changers) reserve the first slot. This give them a place to dump a tape, when it can't figure out what to do with it.
For instance, in my HP A4845A, I can't put a tape or extract a tape from slot one (without disabling this reserve slot from the front panel). You might run through the configs and manuals to see if this is the case for your library or not.
