TSM 53 has introduced a new option on the checkin command:

Specifies the number of minutes that the server will wait for you to
reply or respond to a request. Specify a value in the range 0-9999. If
you want to be prompted by the server, specify a wait time greater than
zero. The default value is 60 minutes. For example, suppose the server
prompts you to insert a tape into the entry/exit port of a library. If
you specified a wait time of 60 minutes, the server will issue a request
and wait 60 minutes for you to reply. Suppose, on the other hand, you
specify a wait time of 0. If you have already inserted a tape, a wait
time of zero will cause the operation to continue without prompting. If
you have not inserted a tape, a wait time of zero will cause the
operation to fail.

Hi all, I upgraded one of my servers to from Friday.
When we tried running the daily drm script I setup Monday morning we had
problems with the library ejecting tapes. To make a long story short,
before the upgrade tsm would prompt us to reply to a request number when
we were ready to eject the next tape, now tsm doesn't ask for a reply
and a bulk move of tapes fails. Anyone see this before?

Here is what it use to do:

ANR8322I 098: Remove 8MM volume 101372 from entry/exit
                      port of library AITLIB; issue 'REPLY' along with
                      request ID when ready. (SESSION: 6656, PROCESS:

Here is what it does now:

ANR8829I Remove volume 900072 from slot 64000 of library AITLIB at your

Thanks in advance,
