Using two HP MSL2024 Tape Drive

I currently have a HP2024 msl LTO6 tape drive connected to a HP ProLiant Server running backup Exec.  I have another HP2024 msl that I have upgraded with a kit from LTO4 to LTO6.  I have connected the second tape drive to the ProLiant Server running backup exec by installing an additional SAS card.  The Server running backup exec sees the upgraded tape drive and it will cataloge the tape(s), but when, for instance I try to run the cleaning tape, the job fails and the tape drive is then listed as "off-line".   Can anyone help me with this issue?  Any recommended trouble-shooting steps?

 

Thanks, ksoros
