Magazine locked by host system ...

Hi!
When trying to eject the magazines from our new Storageworks 2024, I get the message:"Magazine locked by host system" in the display. I'm running Backup Exec as backup software. Can anyone tell me how to configure the system to eject the magazines?

Hello Morten !

In backup exec, go under devices tab,
select your tape drive from the list and right-click it with mouse. There should be an option "unlock" or "unlock device".

When you select this, backup exec will send info for tapedrive to unlock itself.

After this go to tapedrive itself, and select unlock right/left magazine under "operations"

This is handy tool for making tapedrive more secure.

Re: Magazine locked by host system ...

I was wondering if you know why it locked the LTO Autoloader device.... Useally, the device is always unlocked when I need to rotate the tapes.

 

Thanks,
