Sun QFS and Storage Archive Manager (SAM) - Version 3.5 to 5.3 [Release 3.0 to 5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The LTO tape drive went offline and because it's path could not be found, its media type changed from "li" to "tp'

The 'samu r' display below shows the failed drive (eq 53) having a 'type' of 'tp' instead of 'li' and with a 'state' of 'off'.  It also reports a 'status' of "media changer reports no access".



no known change
