Storageworks AIT 35/70 Hot-Pluggable Ejects itself

Hi all,

I've a problem with a Storageworks AIT 35/70 hot-plugged on a DL380.

The firmware of the tape drive its the latest one (v3.0I)

The tape passes all tests with HP L&TT.

The problem is that randomly it ejects the tape thats inside. Even if the drive is idle.

I've replaced this tape for new one 2 times but the symptoms remain the same.

Could it be something with the Smart Array itself that randomly sends some SCSI commands to the tape that ejects the cartridge inside?

Any help will be good ;)

Just for the record. I exchanged the SA and the problem has gone...
