What Rob is trying to say is we are unaware of any way to save/restore the
library configuration. Be ready to hand configure the new one if it comes
to that. There was a way on the big 3594s to save the config and update it
but I don't know if that option exists on the smaller libraries.

As to firmware, while I agree being on the latest version is good, the
reality is you should match what you have today until you verify that after
replacement it works. Then take the time to update it and re-verify it
works. That way if there's a problem you won't be fighting multiple change

I would download:
latest library firmware
latest drive firmware
and be prepared to update those. IBM normally loads up replacement
libraries and drives with the latest firmware. However, if they've been on
the shelf too long they may get dated.
You may want to step through the configuration manually and be prepared to
reenter it all. IP addresses and all. You do have remote access to it via
a web browser, right? Screen shots to Power Point will work quite well.

CE coming on site to replace the entire library, if he can't get the
robot/picker to move.
Where is the library configuration stored?

You rolled the UPS into the elevator with all the batteries in it and now
it's out of range? :-) [Yes seen it done....]

You didn't say how big your 3573 is but it would appear that it's 'lost'
in the vertical dimension. So a sensor failure or dust in there or loose
wire. In any case most likely the repair guy is your best bet here.
