Re: msl5026S2 and mtx

Well no reply for this one :( any way i managed to find out why this was happening. the tape lib was not online :). it was coming offline by default , There is a library option " LIBRARY REMAINS OFFLINE AFTER POWER-UP INITIALIZATION " haven checket it yet, Any way its good that it works with mtx
