Please insert media into the loader or stand alone device which is compatible with the job options. If this is a restore or verify job, make sure that the versions you selected reside on the media available to the device or autoloader"

Kindly help us to troubleshoot this issue.

Tape Drive installed in MSL 8096 is: two LTO-5 Ultrium 3000 SAS drives

The Library is attached with a Server installed in HP C7000 Blade Chasis through SAS module installed in Balade Chassis.

I've had this msg before.

When occurs incidentally, then tape may be bad.

When occurs all the time, then tape drive probably bad.

My problem disappeared after replacing drive (under warranty)

Did it work before?

Sure the software can handle the library?


The software complains about no tape in drive - is the software able to load a tape into the drive?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
