I found this tape with state=unavailable in TSM. After setting the state to "readwrite" and trying to do a "move data 601011L5" nothing happens.... the library is waiting for the tape:

-------- -------------------- -------------------------------------------------
Volume 601011L5 (storage pool CP-D), Target Pool
CP-D, Moved Files: 0, Moved Bytes: 0 bytes,
Deduplicated Bytes: 0 bytes, Unreadable Files:
0, Unreadable Bytes: 0 bytes. Current Physical
File (bytes): 8,570 KB Waiting for mount of
input volume 601011L5 (1253 seconds). Current
output volume(s): 502722L6.

After checking the libvolumes I can see that there is not ape with label 601011L5 within the library.
I can show the contents of the tape without a problem....but where is the tape ????? I can't remember where I have seen a type of REMOTE assigned to this tape....

What can I do to get normal access to this tape ?

Thanks in advance
