I admit to have problem to analyse the problem.

How many tape drives are there in the library?
Are all the drives being used?

Is the TSM Server hosted on a Windows os?
If so TSM does not co-exist very well with Windows RSM.
Check that the RSM service is not started and is disabled.
If it is started, stop it and disable it

On the TSM Server check that the all drives and paths are on line - q drive, q path.
If the drive(s) and/or the path(s) are off line, update the drive(s) and/or path(s) on line.
To get the full syntax, on the TSM Server issue "help update drive" and "help update path".

If the drive(s) and/or paths were off line and the results are still the same.
Check the TSM Server actlog for additional error(s).
Also, check the os error log and see why the os can not communicate with the tape drive(s).

Good Luck,

Thanks a lot.

The path of my drive of all my drive were off line !!!
I launch the command for putting them on line and try to restore with dsjm .---> no problem :)

In fact, the goal is to recover datas with higth retention from TSM before using a new solution of backup ....

Whatever , thank you
