SAM-QFS: Archiver is not Able to Write to Tape, Even Though There Appears to be Media Available (Doc ID 1590897.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 11, 2014

Applies to:

StorageTek Application Storage Manager - Version 5.0 and later
Sun SPARC Sun OS

Symptoms

Archiver is not able to write copy 1 to tape, even though there appears to be media available.

The 'archiver -lv' command reports 'No Available Volumes' but the 'samcmd V' command shows there are several volumes that are 0% used and no 'f' flag.


Excerpt of the /etc/opt/SUNWsamfs/archiver.cmd file configuration:

 

Changes

The Netbackup application was accidentally reconfigured so it had access to the same tapes as SAMFS.
