There are some tapes that are not recognized in the backup application. When checking the ACSLS event log, there are access failure messages:

# tail -50 /export/home/ACSSS/log/acsss_event.log

The owner ID assigned to volume TB2343 is "SYSTEM" instead of "backup":

   $ volrpt -z -f owner_id.volrpt |grep TB2343
   TB2343  VOLUME_HOME  SYSTEM


From the vol_attr.dat file, TB2343 should be owned by "backup":

   vol_attr.dat:
   # Volser | Owner | Scratch | Force | Move to LSM | Assign to
   # | | Pool | | on entry | library
    ..
   TB0000-TB2700|backup||force||

Changes

No known change.
Possibly a problem with watch_vols.
