Re: Tape Library console message??

Hi there.
Problem look familiar to me. The robot tried to transport a tape from or to a drive and the tape is jammed between robot and drive or jammed in the drive. Try to take the tape out by hand and move it to a slot. Switch the library off and on again ( power recycle ).
If you could not take the tape before, try it now. Then do a barcode scan of all tapes.
