SERVO LOAD (send diag) command failed

Re: Error ni MSL2024 HP Tape library

Why are you running the firmware tape to data tape conversion test? That test is only for taking a firmware update tape and converting it to a data tape. Most people never use firmware update tapes. The error doesn't say anything interesting it's a "drive empty" error and a servo load will always fail if the drive is empty.

It may help if you post an L&TT support ticket for the entire library.
