Re: Ultrium 215 Reject My Cartridge

Omer,
have tried using a cleaning cartridge first?
Are you sure you are using the right tape type for the drive?

Yes ,
I tried a cleaning cartridge and i am sure that I am using the right cartridge. After I had my firts message I tried to update tape firmware but firmware update process was broken. Therefore, the server doesn't see my tape drive. I sent the tape drive to HP for replacement.
Thank you for your help.

Omer,
sorry I couldn't help.
Can this be closed as a hardware fault or even better wait for HP to come back with reason for fault and then update the thread.

Re: Ultrium 215 Reject My Cartridge

Assuming you are on a host OS supported by HP Library & Tape Tools, install the most recent version of the tool (www.hp.com/support/tapetools), and save a support ticket to a file (to capture the current logs), and then run the device analysis test. It may suggest a firmware update. See if that leads to resolution of your problem.
The journey IS the reward.
