error message JV2WWX1

Created: 19 Jan 2014 | 5 comments

Error message JV2WWX1 was sighted on the actual IBM Ultrium Tape Device (Server 2008 R2 with BackupExec R3)

I could not find out any info on this error but it appears to refer to the fact that the Tape Device needed cleaning.

Put a cleaning tape through and the tape was recognised and we were able to run a backup on the device.

Where did you see error number JV2WWX1?  I have never seen that before.

If you find this is a solution for the thread, please mark it as such.

I am a remote support tech and the non technical person (very non-technical) on the other end of the line assured me that it was on the Tape Device - however I believe that it was a message on the server monitor as the tape device does not have the capability to display this message in its entirety.

Any chance that is a service tag for a Dell Poweredge T420 server? Maybe with an internal tape drive?

I haven't seen a tape drive capable of a message like that either.  IBM drives typically have a single character display.
