- Virtual tapes do not fit on physical tapes.
- VTL default virtual tape sizes do not fit on physical tape.
- Export on tape  in physical library [SL500] failed because it reached the end of tape. Please create another virtual library with smaller virtual tapes to ensure that the exports complete successfully.
Problem may occur when VTL administrator increases max size of virtual tape, making it too big to fix on real tape.
