But I have a funny problem with my TSM Server.
My TSM Server is 126.96.36.199 based on Windows Server 2003 and an IBM 3584 Library.
In the library I have 4 x LTO2 drives and 1 x LTO3 drive.
Hopefully next week will I have 2 x LTO3 and sometimes under next year only
My Primary pool use Device Class LTO2Class that is a Device Class assigned only
to LTO2 drives.
My Copy Pool use Device Class LTO3Class that is a Device Class assigned only to
When I do a Backup STG from Diskpool to Copypool everything works fine and it
only use LTO3 tapes.
When I migrate from Diskpool to Tapepool everything works fine also and it only
use LTO2 tapes.
But when I want to do a Backup STG from Tapepool to Copypool it hangs and
waiting to load my LTO2 tapes.
I look in the Activity logs for any reason why it waiting for that tape but
can't see any errors.
