 Other two drives installed in Expansion Module are okay.

 Checked FC link from Switch, which shows the target Ports correctly.

 Plug out and Plug in FC Cable not online Base Module Drives from Media Servers.

 SL150 library logs clear, no link error logged.

   Problem Only with Base Module Drives, but no problem with Expansion Module Drives.
   Problem Only with Reboot, but no problem with Shutdown and Power On.


 New installation of SL150.
