I've got a problem with a Tape Drive in my StorageTek L180.
The Tape Drive is a HP LTO3 ULTRIUM Fibrechannel, Firmware Version L29S/008.753
There are 2 other drives in this Library, exactely the same, same Type and Firmware.
The Library was used before and worked well.
Now I attached the Library to a new Server and the "Problem-Drive" gives me an Error called "Targeting Error". (check Picture)
This Error is reported on the Libraries local Display and also in the Web Library Admin.
My Symantec BackupExec 2010 stopped working and took all 3 Drives and the Library "Offline"!
After leaving the "Error Drive" Offline and getting the others and the Library "Online" again Backup Exec was working again.
One answer to this Problem I found is:
"I found out that the plate that contains the identity(barcode?) was not replaced on the new drives, so the L180 could not see where they were located."
But this can't cause the Problem because nothing changed either on the Drives or the Library!
Any idea how to fix that?
PS: Sorry, the Zone New Net Users was a mistake!
