Nick -

Is slot 7 reserved for the cleaning cartridge only? We don't have this
particular model but we do have an LTO3 that uses slot 7 for the cleaning

Hello everyone,

Hope you all had a nice Easter.

I have an IBM 3581 H13 LT01 tape drive.

It works fine except, when I load all 7 slots ( I don't use a bar code
reader in it) it does not automatcally load slot 7.

It is setup to run Sequentially, the SEQ READY message is displayed.

I have tried testing it by putting tapes in slots 6 and 7, and then
backing up a library using SAVLIB, with ENDOPT(*UNLOAD). It backs up onto
slot 6, the tape is ejected, but slot 7 does not load.

If I manually load slot 7, I can backup on it using the same SAVLIB
options, but it does not automatically unload. The status msg states SEQ
DONE. I have to manually unload slot 7.

I have looked through the manuals to no avail. It seems I have everything
setup correctly.

Does anyone know what might be wrong.

We are at V4R5 of the OS.
