VTL Mount request to ACSLS terminates after 5 minutes.

The requested tape gets mounted successfully; but after VTL Mount request has terminated.

This problem happens if tape drive auto-cleaning precedes the Mount request and if the cleaning process takes more than 4 minutes.

Example of the error message in VTL event log:
Mar 3 10:46:03 sunvtl04 genunix: [ID 509796 kern.notice] TLEUP[fffffe8aa325e140]: TapeLibraryFailureUpCall: [ACSLS/LS: Waited 5 minutes for a response from ACSLS/LS ( after trying to mount 102989 on Timing out.]


Tape drive auto-cleaning is enabled in ACSLS.
Possible problem with the drive or with the cleaning media in the drive
