Re: msl8096 lto

The most likely reason is that it is not an MSL8096 but is an MSL8048 which is the same chassis but only has one drive and 48 slots licensed.


It the library was ordered as an MSL8096 you need to open a support call.  There is a process for getting a license key so that the hardware doesn't have to be swapped out.
