Goal

Rebuilding The MIR On Encrypted Tape Cartridges:

As part of the load process the drive attempts to connect to a KMA and get keys.  However, if this fails, the failure is ignored in the REBUILD MIR case as no keys are needed.  If the drive is connected to a KMA that has the needed keys for the tape loaded, the rebuild MIR will start very quickly.  If the drive is not connected to a KMA it can take 10 minutes or more to begin the rebuild process.

Field Text:
The Engineering Port Task was unable to position to the EOD block on tape. The tape may have a perm read error or the EOD block is missing. Try to copy this tape to another tape. If successful, then
scratch the tape.
