SL48 - Invalid Cartridge Errors On SL48 (Doc ID 2260477.1)

Last updated on MAY 01, 2017

Applies to:

Sun StorageTek SL48 Tape Library - Version All Versions and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Cleaned all four drives with a new cleaning tape but it didn't seem to make a difference.
The label seems to be okay and they are using HP media.
Stated they will get the invalid cartridge and then it will load on to the drive and work find.
This has been going on for a couple of weeks. There are no critical errors showing up.
