We found when we changed the library config (only logically) they told
us to re-configure, library defs, drives and paths but we didn't need
We did need to run the 'update library serial=autodetect' to get it to
find it's new serial number as it is somehow linked to the slot number
Hope you get it resolved soon!

Thanks for the answers.
I was afraid that a redefinition of the library would be the answer.
Otherwise I'll give it a go as soon as TSM is finished with it's daily
maintenance tasks. Which will keep him busy for a few more hours.
I've opened a PMR at IBM too, maybe they come up with something else
while TSM is busy.
