Missing Slot for HP MSL2024 Tape Library RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I just taken on a backup solution that uses a HP MSL2024 Tape Library, and I noticed that DPM only recognizes 23 out of the 24 slots available.

    I can see the library has a mailslot, which was enabled, so I'm figuring this is what is missing in DPM. However disabling the mailslot and making it an active slot doesn't make any difference. I've also made some of the registry changes suggested in other threads.

    I can live with 23 slots, but is a little annoying that we can't make use of all 24 slots.

    Any suggestions welcome

    If you have a cleaning tape in a slot the library will hide that slot and DPM will not see it.  However, cleaning will work.
