Weird problem of the day:  If I change my drive cleaning frequency in 
the Admin Console (I believe it uses tpconfig under the covers), the 
frequency reverts to the old value at the next change of media!  
Workaround: If I use the tpclean command to make the change, the change 
"sticks". (I'm lowering from 500 hours to 300 hours).

Environment: Solaris 9, NetBackup 5.1MP3, L700, LTO-1 drives, not 
shared.  NetBackup thinks TapeAlert is on, but it has never worked (the 
L700 does see when the drives have "cleaning needed").

Just thought this might lessen the "astonishment factor", if others see 
the problem.

P.S. Maintenance packs have been coming out quarterly, but v5.1MP4 seems 
several weeks late ... anyone know what's going on?

cheers, wayne
