dat24/5 problem - 3 slots not initialized

I inserted a new magazine of tapes into our dat24x6 and it updated and showed the names of slots 1, 2 & 6 (cleaning tape). Slots 3, 4 & 5 showed but does not change. I re-arranged the tapes in the magazine and slots 1 & 2 showed the names of 2 different tapes I switched with from the same set of 5 and the first two did not show at all. I also tried cleaning the tape head with the cleaning tape. Can anyone give a direction on where to go from here? I'm thinking its time for a maint. call but want to get a second opinion first.

Thanks

Mike

Hi,

This sounds like a camera problem. Place a hardware call.

Cheers

Ok this is weird.. I decided to try one last thing before making a service call and I re-booted our server last night and it works fine now. I thinking software maybe?
