Quantum SDLT320 Front Panel Lights all blinking backup failed
We have a backup that uses a quantum SDLT 320 drive. No library just the tape drive attached to one physical server doing a backup with symantec backup exec 2012.
This morningthe backup failed with a hardware error. All the lights on the drive were blinking. After I ejected the tape and checked hardware devices the backup drive is being seen. I even ran a cleaning tape which completed without problems.
Looking at this documentation from HP for sdlt 320 there is nothing that indicates the meaning when all three lights are blinking. My assumption is that the drive is being seen but I'm not sure if this indicates a faulty drive or not. Also I saw that this can mean the drive is in OBDR but that is only for an SDLt 600 drive.
