MSL 5000 CPQKGSA timeour error / library reboot / Veritas

Hi together:

Is there a way to reset the library in order to recover form SCSI timeout errors without a reboot?

Background:
If my system suffers by the CPQKGSA errors (might be caused though an incorrect TPRLO setting) the whole library hangs and the backup job in veritas hangs too. You can either wait for a very long time till the job concels and the library unlards the tape, or you can power cycle the library but then all connected servers have to be rebooted becasue they might recognize the library incorrectly.

Does anyone know this issue?
