So operations pulled a few tapes this morning, put some tapes in and let me know when they were done. My backups and initializations starting failing. Seems the drives just up and disappeared:
[Critical] From: MMA@sapbck.ssmhc.com "LTO_Drive_2" Time: 4/26/2016 11:39:02 AM
[90:1004] Device address not found.
I checked via ioscan and they seemed like they were still around:
But when I checked in DP itself all teh addresses were 'bad':
I tried a soft boot of the library, hard boot of the library, and multiple ioscans. No luck. where'd my drives go? Why did they go? And how do I get them back? I am trying NOT to have to reboot my CM.
CM is HP-UX 11.31
DP is 9.06
Oh, and I did open a ticket with support.
