    If these are new tapes, you need you need label them first using the label libv command.

    If they have data on them, make sure you are checking them in as private.

    1. We are runningTSM 5.2.2 server on AIX.with 3583 LTO Library connected via SANDGM through a SAN Switch....All the Library, Drive and their path definitions have been done freshly.



    2. Do we ned to upgrade the SANDGM firmware when we upgrade the library Firmware.



    3. Audit library runs successfully..but does not show anytapes when i run the query libvol command.

    When a new library is created in TSM, an audit will not create an inventory. The question I had was if the tapes were brand new or were used by TSM before. Try running the following:



    checkin libv <libname> search=yes status=scr checkl=bar



    If that is successful , run :



    checkin libv <libname> search=yes status=pri checkl=bar



    If these are band new tapes:



    label libv <libname> search=yes checkin=scr labels=bar



    Let me know what the errors are if this does not work.
