Issues with Robtest not being able to move Media
I have an issue in one of my environments where NBU GUI does not show any media in a particular drive but when I perform ROBTEST it shows as media being present. I then try the usual unload/move commands with no success. Please see below for output:
drive 1 (addr 500) access = 1 Contains Cartridge = yes
Source address = 1040 (slot 41)
Barcode = LV3489
SCSI ID from drive 1 is 1
drive 2 (addr 501) access = 0 Contains Cartridge = yes
Source address = 1036 (slot 37)
Barcode = KP0375
SCSI ID from drive 2 is 2
m d1 s37
Initiating MOVE_MEDIUM from address 500 to 1036
sense key = 0x5, asc = 0x3a, ascq = 0x0, MEDIUM NOT PRESENT
Opening /dev/nst0, on the local host, please wait...
Error - cannot open /dev/nst0 (Input/output error)
This happened on 05/07/13 and subsequently required an Oracle engineer onsite who instructed me that the drive needed replaced due to not being able to read. This was the response:
Drive HP LTO2 SCSCI elemnt ID 500 doesn't detect tapes.
Drive needs to bo replaced .
We had the drive replaced and it worked for around 2 days but now the same issue has arisen. Is it possible that its a tape or library issue?
I thought I would consult with you folks before I start trolling logs to see if there is a repeat offender tape....
