    HI,

    I have inserted LTO-5 drives to my library, which was already having LTO-4drive. While i try to backup to LTo-5 tape , the following error is seen.

    ANR8300E I/O error on library 3584LIB1 (OP=00006C03, CC=207, KEY=05, ASC=3B, ASCQ=82,
    SENSE=70.00.05.00.00.00.00.0A.00.00.00.00.3B.82.00.C0.00.06.,
    Description=Device is not in a state capable of performing request). Refer to Appendix C in the 'Messages'
    manual for recommended action.
    ANR8945W Scratch volume mount failed 345CESL5.

    TSM Version :

    Any TSM drivers needs to be updated to use LTO-5 Tape ?

    Did you replace the LTO-4 with LTO-5 or do you have both types in one logical library?

    if you are using both types in one logical library you can only use formatted LTO-4 formatted tapes. you cant use LTO-5 formatted tapes in LTO-4 drives. set the TSM devices for all drives to LTO-4 (FORMAT=ULTRIUM4 or ULTRIUM4C)

    The issue was resolved. The hardaware engineer didn't connect the LTO-5 drive properly. He removed the the drive from library and again fitted it back....no issue is resolved...thanks for eveyone's advise and help..

    Regards,
    Jibu
