Hi Friends,
Need urgent help. I'm quite new with this. Earlier our engineer has put in
some tapes to the 3570 tape library. Now the tapes has been used up and I
need to add a few more tapes to the library . There are still more bays to
put in.

I'm not sure how to do it but this was my steps :
1. Use tapeutil command to put in the new tapes
2. label the vol:
label libv magstar1 search=yes labelsource=barcode checkin=scratch
3. audit library magstar1 checklabel=b
4. checkin all the tapes using the web based admin

It is define as scratch in the q libvol command for the new tapes introduced

But when I issue a backup command (inc), it went through the new tapes but
error occurs :

ANR 8355E  I/O error reading label for vol 02CB26 in drive MAGDRIVE1

ANR 8311E An I/O error occured while accessing drive MAGDRIVE1 (/dev/rmt1)
for GETLOGSENSE operation, errno=22

ANR 8778W Scratch volume 02CB26 changed to private status to prevent
