UMA exchanger Problem


When I execute a stat command

X1 is stating "full"

I have no backups running and its not the cleaning cart. How can I clear ?!!?

Hi there.
Check your library. The 'X' is the mail slot
or the exit slot on some libraries.
Take the tape out and put it somewhere else
( empty slot in the library or out of the library ).

Or just run move X1 S# where # is whatever normal slot in the library you want to move it to. Why is the tape in the mailslot? Unknown.

Re: UMA exchanger Problem

Hi there.
Sorry, not mail slot. A slot like this is usually used to take out tapes without openeing doors. Either just coincidence when filling library with tapes or a tape transport done wrong.
