Few month ago, we upgraded two lib. 3584 from LTO1 to LTO2.
In our case, it was very simple, LTO3 is just read compatible with LTO1

By replcacing vaulted cartridge when they become scratch, and move data,
migration, and so.. (so many solutions :-)
A special point is the vaulting. If I understand everything, you send copies
We encounter lot of problems with bad cartridges since we are with LTO3, and
exclusively with cartridges coming back from off-site...
We are actually building a new solution with electronic vaulting to avoid

Objet : [ADSM-L] Best Business Practice for upgrading LTO2 drives in IBM 3584
I am looking for the Best Business Practice for upgrading LTO2 drives in IBM
3584 Library. We have fourteen LTO2 in the library and about thousand or so
LTO2 tapes. Would it be best to upgrade the some day the
LTO2 drives to LTO3 and replace the LTO2 tapes as they become bad or on a
quarterly basis replace the LTO2 scratch tapes that come from off-site to LTO3
tapes?? Or is there something better??
What does others have in their future years budget plans for tape drive
3584 library L32/D32s upgrades (LTO3, LTO4, etc.)??
