Here is a list of the known categories. It is likely that 0080 has been
set by another process, like a TSM server.
Categories are in HEX, so 0080 would be "50" decimal. Do you have a TSM
server private or scratch category set to 50?
The tape category is in the second category. Here is a list of the known
FF00 Insert Set when a tape volume is added to the
3494 reads the external label on the
an inventory entry for the volume, and
volume to this category. When one or
are assigned to this category, the
attached hosts are
notified. When logical volumes are
inserted via the
operator panel, they are also added to
FF10 Convenience eject Set when the Library Manager accepts an
request. The volume becomes eject
pending, and the
3494 queues the volume to be moved to
Convenience Input Output Station. When
accessor delivers the volume to the
Input Output Station, it is deleted from
FFFA Manually ejected Assigned to this category if the
cartridge that was in
the inventory is not found.

permanently remove them
from the library's inventory.

not sure why.
