    Is there a path for the library?
    In the TSM Server activity log, what message do we see when we try to use the library?

    Via the OS, can it see the library and drives?


    Good Luck,
    Sias

    Ok.. Within the TSM Server the library for the path exist.

    In the TSM Server activity log, what are the error messages that we see when we try to access the tape library?

    From the OS we see the library and the drive.

    Basic troubleshooting steps for library and tape drives in Windows
    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21393009

    Of course when I need it I can not find it.
    There is another techdoc for "Basic troubleshooting steps for library and tape drives in AIX".

    Since the os see the library and the drives, but the library is unknown within the TSM Server.

    1. Power down the tape library, halt the TSM Server application.
    If the TSM Server is hosted on a Windows system, once the TSM Server is halted, power down the system.
    2. Power up the library.
    3. Once the library complete its power, then restart the TSM Server.
    If the TSM Server is hosted on Windows, power up the system and restart the TSM Server.

    Good Luck,
    Sias
