Re: IBM Tape Diagnostic Tool versus TS3100 internal diagnostics



fixed

What we thought was an issue with saving virtual catalogs of images,
in the sst activity log has some codes in the hex analysis that indicate
either hardware or media (tape cartridge) error.

We have had some errors with recent saves, and IBM software ticket still

I'm wanting to rule out a hardware issue.
The TS3100 has a diagnostics option, but while googling it's function, came
across IBM Tape Diagnostics Tool v7.1 which seems to be very
comprehensive.
Has anyone used this versus the TS3100 diags?
