Issue



Incorrect function error occurs during a tape inventory if more than one type of tape drive is in an autoloader or library


Error



Incorrect function


Cause



For example, a library with LTO2 and LTO3 drives and tapes. Bar codes exist on the tape and bar code rules are enabled in Backup Exec.

Set the Barcode Rules to the rules of the barcode labels instead of using the prefix/suffix.  Barcodes used are 0002xx for LTO2 tapes and 0003xx for LTO3 tapes.
