ibm ts3200 autoloader


We recently upgraded the firmware on the tape drive and the autoloader function stopped working -- it is not loading new tapes automatically after system save even though it is configured to do so. We need to move the tapes manually.

Any ideas?

I'm not familiar with this device, but it might be worth trying something that has worked once or twice for me in the past.

Turn off the feature in the device and save the change, power cycle it, and turn it on again. It probably won't work, but it just might - either way, it's free...

If you upgrade tape drive firmware,you also have to upgrade autoloader firmware to a compatible release.
