    STK L700 Library w/6 IBM Ultrium LTO and 2 IBM Ultrium LTO2 drives

    Attempting to use LTO and LTO2 media in one library. I have created a new Device class for the LTO2 tapes. The LTO2 tapes are labeled with LTO2 tape labels. When attempting to label/checkin the new LTO2 tapes, I get the following message:

    ANR8300E I/O error on library L700LIB (OP=00006C03,

    CC=404, KEY=05, ASC=30, ASCQ=00, SENSE=

    .00.0C., Description-

    =Media incompatibility). Refer to Appendix D in the

    'Messages' manual for recommended action.

    Any ideas? Please let me know if you need further info....

    Hi , I am a newbie for TSM but i reckon i have read about this situation somewhere in books.

    If you are mixing different types of drives and media, configure different device classes: one for each type of media. To specify the exact media type, use the FORMAT parameter in each of the device class definitions. (Do not specify FORMAT=DRIVE). For example, if you are mixing Ultrium Generation 1 and Ultrium Generation 2 drives, specify FORMAT=ULTRIUMC (or ULTRIUM) for the Ultrium Generation 1 device class, and FORMAT=ULTRIUM2C (or ULTRIUM2) for the Ultrium Generation 2 device class.

    Both device classes can point to the same library in which there can be Ultrium Generation 1 and Ultrium Generation 2 drives. The drives will be shared between the two storage pools. One storage pool will use the first device class and Ultrium Generation 1 media exclusively. The other storage pool will use the second device class and Ultrium Generation 2 media exclusively. Because the two storage pools share a single library, Ultrium Generation 1 media can be mounted on Ultrium Generation 2 drives as they become available during mount point processing.

    Apologies if i am wrong, please someone suggest if i am wrong
