Tapes confusing

Hello

I changed new LTO tapes in storage, scanned barcodes and formated it. Then I started a job for copy to tapes.

Now every job want mount request. I dont know why ? From logs it looks like two drives want same tape.

There is log.

 In slot 74 is correct tape but in slot 120 is cleaning tape. Why drive 2 wants mount request from slot 120 ?

I am confused

Hello @aopk

Do not worry about the slot that is asking for. The mount requests always asks for a random slot, and most of the times is the last one that read. 

But well, for the behavior. 
Check the pool that you have configured in the devices, and confirm the tapes are in that pool. If not, change the tapes to the pool selected or move the tapes to that pool.
