SDLT320 problem



Environment is the following TSM 5.4 and HP Storageworks SDLT 320 with AMI MegaRAID Enterprise 1200 SCSI controller.


At one day full backup to tape failed with the following TSM error messages:


ANR8336I Verifying label of DLT volume 30088210 in drive MT6.0.0.6 (mt6.0.0.6). (SESSION: 22, PROCESS: 10) 06/11/2010 01:13:09  ANR8302E I/O error on drive MT6.0.0.6 (mt6.0.0.6) with  30088210 (OP=REW, Error Number=1117, CC=205, KEY=FF, ASC=FF, ASCQ=FF, SENSE=**NONE**, Description=SCSI adapter failure).  Refer to Appendix C in the 'Messages' manual for recommended action. (SESSION: 22, PROCESS: 10) 06/11/2010 01:13:09  ANR8355E I/O error reading label for volume 30088210 in drive MT6.0.0.6 (mt6.0.0.6). (SESSION: 22, PROCESS: 10) 06/11/2010 01:13:35  ANR8468I DLT volume 30088210 dismounted from drive MT6.0.0.6 (mt6.0.0.6) in library MANLIB. (SESSION: 22,  PROCESS: 10)


“HP StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools” also report about problem with drive and then hung up. I have attached the error log.


Can I conclude that tape drive is broken?

Re: SDLT320 problem

Just a few thoughts to get you going....

Tivoli Storage Manager, Version 5.4

Error - ANR8302E indicates that there is a configuration issue with your TSM.

Ensure that the DEVICE parameter associated with the drive was identified correctly in the DEFINE PATH command.

Check out the values of the KEY, ASC, and ASCQ fields that need to be specified in the TSM.

Let me know. We will discuss further....
