DPM 2010 and TS2900 can't unload tape (Rollup 6) RRS feed

  • Question

  • For the past few days I ran into a lot of troubles trying to configure IBM TS2900 with DPM 2010. So far I can't run a detailed inventory, the tape won't come back to its original slot.

    The DPM is up to date (rollup package 6). I have positioned the registry key RMSCompatMode to 29 after applying the rollup, this could be the cause of this problem ?

    Here the output of the mct-x64 -p and -d
