View Full Version : Tape Changer and chg-scsi

Update: the changer.conf was wrongfully edited :-(
Now its corrected and it works :-D


I have a Sony LIB-81 A3 tapelibrary, with 8 tape slots and a tapedrive.

The slots are named slot 1 ... 8 and the tapedrive has slot 82
this is vendor given and cannot be changed.

Ive tested a lot, and found that amtape <conf> slot 4 arent equal to the slot 4 in the tape library. If the tape has changed location, eg. the library has turned, the indexes arent correct with amanda.

How can I make sure that amtape takes the correct tape from slot5 ?

This happens when I change tapes or want to exchange a tape.

Another thing, how can I enforce slot 82 so the tape goes in the drive ?

What does your changer.conf look like? I have the same device and I'm trying to setup my changer.conf for it.
