HSM: The tplabel Utility Returns Unlabeled (Doc ID 2882488.1)

Last updated on JULY 12, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Hierarchical Storage Manager (HSM) and StorageTek QFS Software - Version 6.1.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Secure site customer said that when he tries to tplabel it mounts, it read the existing label, then appears to write the label, but the message when it appeared to finish was "unlabeled".

Also, the E flag set and, after VSN, the catalog ('samcmd v' output) showed MEDIA ERROR

However, when the customer ran the dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rmt/Xcbn count=1024 they received the error "Write permission denied" and the label was still there. 

We confirmed they were not using WORM and that there was no physical write protect switch set on their volumes.
