the 3570 has three modes to be run in:


As far as I know, you have to run the 3570 in random mode, to be able to
use it togetehr with ADSM. I have been not able to define the library in
ADSM without putting it into random mode. You can test this using the
utility tapeutil, which is installed together with the Magstar drivers
(Atape.....). If you are able to load from tapeutil a tape into the picker
and then into the drive and also to put it back where it came from, then
you are running the Library in random mode. You can check and switch the
mode using the front panel at the library.
