Failure to Move a Physical Tape from a Slot to an Import/Export Slot Using the VTL

Publication Date:  2015-07-31 Views:  80 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
Products and versions:

VTL3500 V100R002
VTL6000 V100R003

In the navigation tree of the VTL Console, right-click Physical Tape Libraries and choose Move > Move Slot to IE Slot from the shortcut menu. A message is displayed stating Cannot move the tape from slot to IE slot.
Handling Process
1.  In the navigation tree of the VTL Console, right-click Physical Tape Libraries and select Reset.

2.  In the navigation tree of the VTL Console, right-click Physical Tape Libraries and select Inventory.

Root Cause
After a physical tape library (PTL) is taken over by a VTL, all operations destined for the PTL must be finished on the VTL. If operations are performed both on the PTL and VTL, operations directly performed on the PTL are not recorded by the VTL. As a result, the VTL cannot control the PTL all the way.
