Hi. After a power failure, the library does not read LTO tapes anymore. The product is:

MSL2024 HP 0-DRIVE CHASSIS 2U AK379A

MSL HP LTO6 6250 FC DRIVE KIT C0H28A

Error example from log:

Re: MSL 2024 library error

its hard to say what the issue is, power cuts can cause strange problems.

it sounds like the drive is probably the issue.

Re: MSL 2024 library error

you could have it repaired, or buy a replacement.

its not easy to say without seeing what the drive/library is doing. certain errors dont always give a true fault.

Re: MSL 2024 library error

The tape drive is having problems writing data. No data has been lost, but there has been a reduction in the capacity of the tape.
The drive is having severe trouble writing.
shutdown / reboot the library.
Clean the Drive using a valid cleaning media .
Try to perform write operation using a known good media and check .

Re: MSL 2024 library error

Why do you say this? In fact, the problem seems to be a reading one, any tape I move from slot to drive gives error, the drive should just be reading the header.
