ESL G3 tape drive status [autolevel]

Hi All,

im trying to upgrade my ESL G3 LTO6 firmware to the latest version from J3HW to J5SW. 

unfortunatly the drive status (as per screenshot) is at autolevel which prevent me from upgrading it. 

here is the detail.

Library: ESL G3 HW revision 2 ( firmware 752H.GS10800 )

Drive: ESL G3 LTO-6 Ultrium 6650 FC tape drive ( firmware J3HW)

im start to think that im using the wrong firmware version. 

eitherway, if someone have any idea on this, it will be really helpfull. 

Thanks in advance.

Are you uploading the drive firmware to the MCB?

Try to modify the partition and set the auto level to the new firmware.

Then it will work & you should be able to upgrade the firmware .
