Safety
■ Fiber Optic Safety
WARNING:
Eye hazard. Never look directly into a fiber-optic cable, a fiber-optic
connector, or a laser transceiver module. Hazardous conditions might
exist from laser power levels that are capable of causing injury to the
eye.
Be especially careful when using optical instruments with this
equipment. Such instruments might increase the likelihood of eye injury.
The laser transceivers in fiber-optic equipment can pose dangers to personal
safety. Ensure that anyone who works with this StorageTek equipment
understands these dangers and follows safety procedures. Ensure that the
optical ports of every laser transceiver module are terminated with an optical
connector, a dust plug, or a cover.
Each fiber-optic interface in this StorageTek Fibre Channel equipment contains
a laser transceiver that is a Class 1 Laser Product. Each laser transceiver has an
output of less than 70 µW and a wavelength of 850 nm. StorageTek’s Class 1
Laser Products comply with EN60825-1(+A-11) and with sections 21 CFR
1040.10 and 1040.11 of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations.
The following translations are for users in Finland and Sweden who wish to
identify laser safety and classification:
CLASS 1 LASER
LUOKAN 1 LASERLAITE
KLASSE 1 LASER APPARAT
■ Laser Product Label
In accordance with safety regulations, a label on each StorageTek Fibre Channel
product identifies the laser class of the product and the place and date of the
manufacturer. The label appears on top of a Fibre Channel tape drive and near
the Fibre Channel connectors on a Fibre Channel tape library. A copy of the
label is shown here:

■ Fiber-Optic Cable Handling
Observe these precautions when you handle fiber-optic cables:
•
Do not coil the cable to less than 96 mm (3.75 in.) in diameter.
•
Do not bend the cable to less than 12 mm (0.5 in.) in radius. StorageTek
recommends that a cable’s bend radius be no less than 20 times the
diameter of the cable.
•
Do not pull on the cables; carefully place them into position.
•
Do not grasp the cables with pliers, grippers, or side cutters; do not attach
pulling devices to the cables or connectors.
•
Keep cables away from sharp edges or sharp protrusions that could cut or
wear through the cable; make sure that cutouts in the equipment have
protective edging.
•
Install the connector’s protective cover whenever the connector is not
connected.
■ Electrostatic Discharge Damage Prevention
Before you touch any internal components in the library, including drives, you
must take precautions against electrostatic discharge (ESD).
CAUTION:
Components are sensitive to static electricity: Even a small electrostatic
discharge can damage an electrical component that is inside the library.
A damaged component might not fail immediately, but over time, it will
become worse and might eventually cause an “intermittent” problem. Be
sure that you touch an unpainted metal surface of the library before you
reach inside the library or touch the drives.
Before you touch any internal components:
1. With your finger, touch an unpainted metal surface of the library. In some
libraries, you can touch the library’s frame. In other libraries, you might
have to touch a bolt on the wall or on the door frame.
2. Keep your body movement to a minimum as you touch the drives or the
library components.
Antistatic wrist straps that have clip-on ends are commercially available.

Rack Safety and Precautions
■ Rack Safety and Precautions
WARNING:
Possible personal injury:
•
More than one person might be required to install equipment into the
library’s rack or to remove equipment from the library’s rack.
•
Personnel should take adequate precautions when they are moving a
library that contains rack-mounted equipment. The weight of some
rack equipment might alter the height of the library’s center of
gravity. This condition might cause the library to tip during a move.
CAUTION:
Potential equipment damage: Do not exceed the maximum allowable
weight (77.1 kg [170 lb]) and U-height (6U) for equipment in the rack area
of this library.
Observe the following safety and handling precautions when you are installing
equipment into the library’s rack:
•
Ensure that the equipment has UL listing (listing by Underwriters’
Laboratories), CSA certification (certification by the Canadian Standards
Association), and CE compliance (compliance with the European Council’s
directives and standards).
•
Understand that the library does not supply power to the rack area. So
ensure that the rack-mounted equipment has an adequate power source.
Note: If you remove power from the library by using the library’s power
switch, the rack-mounted equipment will remain powered on.
95895
•
Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines to position, to support, and to fasten
the equipment in the rack.
•
Locate the equipment so that it does not block or hinder any ventilation
openings in the library’s rack area. For example, do not block library or
drive exhaust areas, the electronic module exhaust area, perforated metal,
or other similar ventilation.
•
Locate the equipment so that the library’s doors adequately clear the
equipment when you close them.
•
Install the equipment from the bottom of the rack to the top of the rack;
StorageTek recommends that you place the heaviest items near the bottom
of the rack.
•
Ensure that any equipment that you place within the rack is adequately
cooled. The library’s internal ambient temperature should not exceed the
recommended operating temperature. Base cooling considerations upon the
power dissipation within the rack space as well as upon the ambient room

General Information
1
This chapter describes the hardware components of the StorageTek L180 tape
library. For specific information about interfaces, drives, and client software,
refer to your software or drive documentation.
The library is the hardware component in an automated tape cartridge system.
More specifically, the library is a robotic system that stores, moves, mounts, and
dismounts tape cartridges that are used for data read or write operations.
Figure 1-1 on page 1-2 through Figure 1-4 on page 1-7 show the library’s major
components, which are described in the following pages.
■ Library Components
For an orientation to the major external components of the library, see
Figure 1-1 on page 1-2. The library has four major internal components:
95895
•
A robot, which mounts and dismounts cartridges
•
Storage cells for 84 to 174 data tape cartridges
•
A cartridge access port (CAP) that holds up to 10 tape cartridges in two
magazines
•
Drives, which perform read/write operations

Robot
The robot moves cartridges between storage cells, between storage cells and
tape drives, and between the CAP and storage cells. It consists mainly of the Z
column assembly and the hand-camera assembly. Figure 1-2 on page 1-4 shows
the robot components.
The Z column assembly contains a Z column and Z carriage. The Z column,
which attaches to the floor and ceiling of the library, rotates almost 180 degrees
to enable the hand to gain access to all cells in the library.
The hand-camera assembly contains the hand (or “gripper”) and a bar code
scanner, referred to as “the camera.” The hand, which is on the Z carriage,
grasps and releases cartridges. The Z carriage moves the hand up and down the
Z column to storage cells, drives, or the CAP.
The camera, which is on the hand, is active only during a library audit. An audit
occurs when you:
•
Power on the library
•
Open and close the lower front library door
•
Make a request at the customer server console to audit the library
During an audit, the camera reads the location and volume serial number
(VOLSER) of each cartridge in the storage cells and reserved cells. Because this
information is stored in memory on the logic card (referred to as the “MPC”
card), the library does not rely on the camera to locate cartridges during mount
and dismount operations.
The storage of audit data has two implications for operation:
95895
•
Each time an audit occurs, you must use the system console to request a
client (host) update. This procedure adds the library audit information to
the client memory.
•
If you manually exchange a cartridge from a drive for one in storage, the
client memory will continue to apply the VOLSER and location information
from the first cartridge to the second cartridge. This might cause an error.

Storage Cells
The client software locates cartridges by panel, column, row and cell. The
library contains storage cells for 84 to 174 data tape cartridges, excluding the
CAP cells and reserved cells. The library capacity (total number of cells) was
determined at the time the library was ordered or upgraded.
Cell Locations
Data tape cartridges are stored in cell arrays that hold six cartridges. The cell
arrays are stacked in columns and the columns are arranged in a semicircle
1-4
Third Edition PRELIMINARY
95895
Library Components
around the robot. Columns can hold up to 28 cartridges. (The topmost arrays in
each column hold only four data cartridges.)
Figure 1-3 on page 1-6 and Figure 1-4 on page 1-7 show cell locations for the
L180 library in its various configurations.
Notes: The following statements apply to cell locations:
1. The library uses array targets for robotic calibration after you power
on or reinitialize the library.
2. You must not place data cartridges in the reserved cells (refer to
“Reserved Cells” on page 1-8 for more information). If you do not
want to store diagnostic and/or cleaning tapes in these cells, you
must leave them empty.
3. The library does not use the drive and CAP locations to store
cartridges.
4. The robot uses the swap cell (the top-most cell in the reserved cells)
to place a cartridge that is left in the hand when a power failure
occurs or to perform a swap operation.
Library Capacity
Table 1-1 lists library storage capacities (also shown in Figure 1-3 on page 1-6).
Although library capacity is automatically configured when you bring the library
online, check the operator panel to ensure that the capacity information is
accurate. If the information is not accurate, check the location of the theta
stops, as shown in Figure 1-5 on page 1-8.

Library Components
Cartridge Access Port (CAP)
The CAP (shown closed in Figure 1-1 on page 1-2) lets you add cartridges to or
remove cartridges from the library without interrupting normal library
operations. The CAP, accessible from the front of the library, holds two
cartridge magazines.
A CAP magazine is designed for easy handling. You can add cartridges to the
magazine while leaving it in the CAP by simply lifting up and pulling down on
the magazine handle and then adding cartridges. Or you can add cartridges to
the magazine by lifting it out, inserting the cells, and placing the magazine back
into the CAP. A magazine’s snap-on cartridge retention cover lets you keep
cartridges in place when carrying the magazine. For detailed procedures, refer
to “Inserting Cartridges into the CAP” on page 4-9.
You also can use the CAP to export and import cleaning cartridges. Refer to
“Importing Cleaning Cartridges through the CAP” on page 4-13 and “Exporting
Cleaning Cartridges to the CAP” on page 4-15.
Drives
The library supports five types of tape drives:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Digital Linear Tape (DLT) 8000
DLT7000
3580 Ultrium (IBM)
Einstein Ultrium (Hewlett-Packard)
Viper 200 Ultrium (Seagate)
9840
The maximum number of DLT and Ultrium drives supported in an L180 is 10.
(The maximum number of DLT drives permissible in your library depends on
the type of drive and your site’s power configuration.) The maximum number
of 9840 drives is six. Mixing drive types is allowed. All drives are in the library’s
single drive column.
As an operator, you might have to:
•
Configure a drive in a library; refer to “Drive Entries (SCSI Drives Only)” in
Chapter 3, “Configuration.”
•
Check drive status information; refer to “Monitoring Status Information” in
Chapter 4, “Library Operation.”
•
Manually mount a cartridge into a drive or dismount a cartridge from a
drive; refer to “Mounting/Dismounting Cartridges Manually” in Chapter 4,
“Library Operation.”
Note: During typical operation (or automated mode), the library’s robotic
hand automatically places a cartridge into the drive or removes a
95895
Third Edition PRELIMINARY
1-9
Library Safety Features
cartridge from the drive when a command is sent from the client
software.
For specific drive information, refer to your drive publications.
■ Library Safety Features
Safety features are incorporated into the library. If the front door to the library is
opened, an electronic interlock removes power from the robot.
In the electronics compartment, covers over the logic card, the AC power
supply, and the DC power supply prevent you from coming into contact with
hazardous voltages and sensitive electronics.
■ Controlling Software
The controlling software (also referred to as “client” or “server” software)
requests tape read/write operations and robotic move operations. When the
library is in automated mode (refer to the following section, “Library Operating
Modes”), these operations occur without operator intervention. The software
determines where the cartridge is located by accessing audit data (sometimes
referred to as “the catalog”) uploaded from the library; the software then
allocates which drive receives the cartridge. For command descriptions and
instructions, refer to your software publications.
■ Library Operating Modes
An operating mode is the manner in which a library and the controlling
software interact. A library can operate in either automated mode or manual
mode, as described in the following paragraphs.
Automated Mode
Automated mode is the normal operating mode of the library. The controlling
software instructs the robot to move cartridges among the storage cells, drives,
and CAP without operator intervention. Operator tasks include:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Monitoring the library operator panel for messages
Entering a cartridge into the CAP
Ejecting a cartridge from the CAP
Replacing a cleaning cartridge
Cleaning a drive
Reviewing the FSC log
Running diagnostic tests
Powering off the library
Refer to Chapter 4, “Library Operation,” for the procedures.
1-10
Third Edition PRELIMINARY
95895
Auto Clean Feature
Manual Mode
Manual mode occurs when the library is taken offline or loses power. Operator
tasks include:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Opening the library front door
Moving the robot
Locating a cartridge
Removing a cartridge from the hand
Mounting a cartridge into a drive
Dismounting a cartridge from a drive
Returning the library to online status
Refer to Chapter 4, “Library Operation,” for the procedures.
■ Auto Clean Feature
Drives must be cleaned occasionally to prevent read/write errors. The library
supports two methods for cleaning drives: automatic cleaning (or Auto Clean)
and manual cleaning. The Auto Clean feature is enabled automatically when the
library detects a cleaning cartridge in a reserved cell after you power on the
library or open and close the library front door. With Auto Clean enabled, when
a drive requires cleaning, the robot retrieves the required cleaning cartridge
from the reserved cell area, mounts the cartridge into the drive, and returns the
cartridge to the reserved cell after cleaning is complete.
If Auto Clean is not enabled, a CLEAN NEEDED message appears on the
operator panel’s display screen when a drive requires cleaning. You must then
place the required cleaning cartridge into the CAP and execute the Clean Drive
function from the operator panel menus.
Refer to “Enabling Auto Clean” in Chapter 3, “Configuration,” and “Cleaning a
Drive” on page 4-17 for more information and procedures.
■ 6U Rack Area
CAUTION:
Potential damage to library electronics and drives: The two perforated
sections in the rear of the rack area provide ventilation for the library
processor, power supply, and drives. Do not block these sections.
Potential equipment damage: The total maximum weight of equipment
installed in this location must not exceed 77.1 kg (170 lb), and the total
height must not exceed 6U.
Potential equipment damage: Ensure that any equipment that you place
within the rack is adequately cooled. The library’s internal ambient temperature should not exceed the recommended operating temperature.
95895
Third Edition PRELIMINARY
1-11
Horizon L Series Library Monitor (Optional)
Base cooling considerations upon the power dissipation within the rack
space as well as upon the ambient room conditions that are external to
the library. You must provide cooling for moderate power dissipation
within the rack space.
The rack area is not recommended for high power dissipation components such as multiprocessor servers or disk arrays.
You may use the internal 6U rack area, behind the top front door, for additional
equipment. Requirements for this area are:
•
An understanding of all the information in “Rack Safety and Precautions” on
page xix.
•
Placement of equipment well away from the perforated ventilation areas in
the rack.
•
Routing of power cables through the cutouts in the bottom of the library
frame.
■ Horizon L Series Library Monitor (Optional)
The Horizon L Series Library Monitor is an optional web-based interface to the
library. If your library has the Horizon L Series Library Monitor installed, you
can perform these tasks through a workstation or PC that is running a Netscape
or Microsoft browser.
•
•
•
•

■ Library Power Switch
The library power switch is a circuit breaker (or two circuit breakers) behind
the rear door of the library (to the left of the drive column). Figure 2-18 on
page 2-19 shows the power switch location.
The power switch has two configurations:
•
A single circuit breaker on the main PDU lets you control power to the
library and all ten drive positions.
•
An optional second circuit breaker (on the optional PDU) lets you control
power to the top five drive positions and ensure power to the library in
case the main electrical circuit loses power. (In this configuration, the main
PDU powers the bottom five drive positions as well as the library.)
Notes: If your library has two circuit breakers, then:
1. The optional PDU must be connected to a separate electrical circuit.
2. If one PDU loses power, the other PDU remains on to provide
power to the library.
To apply power to the library and drive column:
1. Open the rear door by gently pulling on the finger slot.
2. Lift the power switch (one or two circuit breakers).
3. Close the rear door.
To remove power from the library and drive column:
1. Make sure all jobs are complete.
2. Open the rear door by gently pulling on the finger slot.
3. Push down on the library power switch (one or two circuit breakers).
4. Close the rear door.

Configuration
3
This chapter describes how to configure the library and drives for operation.
Configuration requires you to:
1. Enable Auto Clean (if desired) by installing cleaning cartridges
2. Power on or reset the library
3. Enter required configuration information (and reset the library if necessary)
4. Place the library online (if necessary)
5. Send a client command to load library audit information into client memory
After power-on, the library automatically verifies and loads some configuration
values, such as drive locations, Auto Clean status, capacity, and drive types.
Before the library is fully operational, however, someone must enter the
remaining configuration values. Typically, your service representative will
configure your library during installation, during a firmware upgrade, or after
drives are added. If you must change the library’s configuration, you may enter
the values through the operator panel.
Note: You might need to consult with your systems administrator for some
information.
■ Enabling Auto Clean
You will need to clean the drives occasionally to prevent read/write errors.
Enabling the Auto Clean feature allows the library to initiate drive cleaning
without operator intervention. (A drive is cleaned with a special cleaning
cartridge.)
To enable Auto Clean, insert valid cleaning cartridges into any of the five cells
that are reserved for cleaning and diagnostic cartridges.
Note: To be valid, a cleaning cartridge must have “CLN” somewhere in its
VOLSER label. 9840 cleaning cartridges also must have a “U” on their
media ID labels. For more information, see Appendix A, “Cartridge
Information.”
For instructions on how to use the CAP to insert cleaning cartridges, see
“Importing Cleaning Cartridges through the CAP” on page 4-13. For the location
of the reserved cells, see “Reserved Cells” in Chapter 1, “General Information.”
95895
Third Edition PRELIMINARY

Powering on the Library
Note: The Auto Clean feature is automatically enabled if you insert even one
cleaning cartridge into the reserved cell area and then power on or reset
the library.
To install cleaning cartridges in the reserved cells:
1. Unlock and open the front door (see “Opening the Library Front Door” in
Chapter 4, “Library Operation”).
2. Ensure that the cleaning cartridges are right side up. (The numbers on the
VOLSER label should be closest to the top edge and facing outward. For an
illustration of the correct orientation, see Figure 3-1 on page 3-16.)
CAUTION:
Potential static electricity damage to electrical components. Take
precautions against electrostatic discharge by touching the gray,
unpainted metal of the library frame before reaching inside the library or
before touching the drives. Avoid touching any electrical component.
Confined space. While reaching inside the library, take care to avoid
bumping your head or catching your clothing on protruding edges.
3. Place a cartridge into any of the five designated cells.
4. Close and lock the front door.
Note: You may follow this same procedure to insert diagnostic cartridges into
the reserved cells. (Every diagnostic cartridge has “DG” as the first two
letters of its VOLSER label.) However, inserting only diagnostic
cartridges does not enable Auto Clean.
■ Powering on the Library
Powering on the library supplies power to the library and to the drive column.
Powering on also initializes the library and causes an IPL (initial program load)
(see “Initializing and IPLing the Library” on page 3-2).
To power on the library, lift the power switch (one or two circuit breakers)
behind the rear door of the library. (See “Library Power Switch” on page 2-18
and Figure 2-18 on page 2-19.)
Note: If the library does not power on, contact your service provider and
report the problem.
■ Initializing and IPLing the Library
Powering on the library causes it to initialize components and perform an IPL
(initial program load). During initialization, the library prepares the robotics for
use and audits any cartridges in the storage and reserved cells. During an IPL,
3-2

the library loads the operating code and automatically verifies some
configuration values, such as drive locations and drive types.
Reinitializing the Library
You will have to reinitialize the library in the rare instance when a robotic
component malfunctions. Before reinitializing the library, perform any
necessary manual operation tasks (see “Operating in Manual Mode” on
page 4-21).
To reinitialize the library, make sure that all drives are powered on and perform
one of these actions:
•
•
Power off and power on the library (also causes an IPL)
Open and close the front door
Re-IPLing (Resetting) the Library
You will have to re-IPL (reset) the library when:
•
You are directed to do so by your system administrator or a service
representative
•
You have to change the library configuration (for example, when you have
to change the library’s SCSI ID)
To re-IPL the library after it is already powered on, make sure that all the drives
are powered on and press the RESET button on the operator panel.
■ Entering Configuration Data
After the IPL is complete, the initial status screen will appear on the operator
panel. This indicates that you may now complete the configuration process. At
this point, you must make choices about your library, drives, and network and
enter those choices into the library’s memory.
Note: You might need to consult with your systems administrator for some
information.
You may enter all configuration data through the operator panel. See “Operator
Panel Entry” for specific instructions. If you have installed the Horizon L Series
Library Monitor, you also can enter some configuration data through a
workstation or a PC that is running a Netscape or Microsoft browser. For more
information, access the online help files for the Horizon L Series Library
Monitor.

10. If the library SCSI ID is the only configuration value you wish to set at this
time, press the RESET button. If you wish to set other configuration values
before you reset the library, continue with the next section.
Notes: These notes explain special circumstances for setting the library’s SCSI
ID (address):
1. When configuring the library to a Unix workstation, StorageTek
recommends that you use a dedicated SCSI client bus adapter:
-
For wide SCSI adapters, you may assign any address from 0 to
14 for the library.
-
For narrow SCSI adapters, the range of addresses is 0 to 6.
2. If you choose to use the embedded system bus on the SPARC
station, you should select address 6, 5, 2, or 0 for the library because
the remaining targets are reserved for Sun peripherals.
3. For IBM RISC System/6000 machines, available addresses on the
embedded system bus are 6, 5, 3, and 2.
Setting the Library Fibre Channel Port 0 Address
If the control path for the library is Fibre Channel, you must set the Library’s
Fibre Channel Port 0 address. The library Fibre Channel Port 0 address locates
the library’s Port 0 on the Fibre Channel loop. You set the library Fibre Channel
Port 0 address from the Lib Fibre I/F Config Menu.
To set this value:
1. From the online status screen, press the MENU button. The Main Menu will

instructions on how to set required configuration data.
Setting the Web Password
If your library has the Horizon L Series Library Monitor installed, you must set a
Web password at the operator panel. For instructions on how to set this value,
see the documentation that shipped with the Horizon L Series Library Monitor.
Drive Entries (SCSI Drives Only)
Notes: These notes apply to configuring a 9840 drive:
1. For you to be able to configure a 9840 drive’s SCSI ID and bus status
from the library’s operator panel, the drive must have firmware
version 1.24 or later. To check the drive’s firmware version, select
DRIVE INFO from the Main Menu.
2. Configuring a 9840 drive might involve more than setting the drive’s
SCSI ID and bus status. For more information about 9840 drive
configuration options and instructions, refer to the 9840 Tape Drive
Product Manual, PN 95741.
Two entries at the library operator panel complete the configuration choices for
each SCSI drive installed in the library:
•
•

SCSI ID
Bus status (on or off bus)
Third Edition PRELIMINARY
95895
Entering Configuration Data
Note: “On bus” means that the drive is on the same SCSI bus as the library.
“Off bus” means that the drive is not on the same SCSI bus as the
library.
You set the drive SCSI IDs and bus status choices from the drive configuration
menu (see Figure 2-15 on page 2-15.) You can enter both values for each drive
at the same time:
1. At the Main Configuration Menu, press an arrow button until the cursor

ON BUS: ON
The first two digits are the drive’s logical number, that is, the number
that the library has assigned the drive. The library sets this number
during its automatic configuration sequence (at power-on or reset). It is
an internal number only and is shown for information only. The
uppermost drive within the column is designated as “0,” the next is “1,”
and so forth
Next in the example is the drive type (DLT7000 in this example). To the
right of the drive type is the ID or SCSI address. On the next line is the
drive’s bus status.
The Einstein Ultrium drive displays as HP LTO. The 3580 Ultrium drive
displays as IBM LTO. The Viper 200 Ultrium drive displays as SGT LTO.
Notes: These statements further explain how drive information might appear
on the menu:
-
If the drive is a Fibre Channel drive, the menu will display
FIBRE I/F instead of the SCSI ID.
-
If the menu displays INVALID instead of the SCSI ID for a
drive, you must set the drive’s SCSI ID to a valid address.
3. Use the arrow buttons to scroll to the drive you wish to change and press
the SELECT button. The Set Drive SCSI ID Menu will appear.

Inserting Cartridges into the Library
■ Inserting Cartridges into the Library
CAUTION:
Potential static electricity damage to electrical components: Take
precautions against electrostatic discharge by touching the gray,
unpainted metal of the library frame before reaching inside the library or
before touching the drives. Avoid touching any electrical component.
Confined space: While reaching inside the library, take care to avoid
bumping your head or catching your clothing on protruding edges.
When you are ready to place the library into production, you may place data
cartridges inside the library. The most efficient way to insert a great quantity of
cartridges into the library is to insert them manually into the array cells.
Figure 3-1and Figure 3-2 on page 3-17 illustrate this method. (You must first
unlock and open the library front door.) You also may insert cartridges into
array cells by using the CAP. (See “Inserting Cartridges into the CAP” on
page 4-9.)

Sending Library Audit Data to Client
■ Sending Library Audit Data to Client
During initialization, the library audits the location and VOLSER of all cartridges
in the storage and reserve cells. The library performs an audit when:
•
•
•
You power on the library.
You open and close the front library door.
Make a request at the customer server console to audit the library
You must follow every audit with a client command that loads the library audit
data (the “catalog”) into client memory. For instructions on how to send this
command, refer to your software and system publications.

cover on the magazine, remove the cover before replacing the magazine.)
6. Press the CAP button on the operator panel to close the CAP.
Note: StorageTek strongly advises that you do not enter unlabeled cartridges.
The client software determines what happens when you enter a
cartridge with an unreadable label. Under ordinary conditions, the
camera on the hand audits the CAP and recognizes that a cartridge is
present, but the hand does not move it. You must remove the cartridge
from the CAP.
In this situation, the client software might direct the library to stop
operating. Other software might prompt you to type in a label number
when no VOLSER is read. Typing in a label number might cause a
problem later during an audit because the camera still will not be able
to read the unreadable VOLSER on the cartridge.

Before starting any of these tasks, you must take precautions against
electrostatic discharge (ESD).
CAUTION:
Components are sensitive to static electricity: Even a small electrostatic
discharge can damage an electrical component that is inside the library.
A damaged component might not fail immediately, but over time, it will
become worse and might eventually cause an “intermittent” problem. Be
sure that you touch an unpainted metal surface of the library before you
reach inside the library or touch the drives.
Before you touch any internal components:
1. With your finger, touch an unpainted metal surface of the library. In some
libraries, you can touch the library’s frame. In other libraries, you might
have to touch a bolt on the wall or on the door frame.
2. Keep your body movement to a minimum as you touch the drives or the
library components.
Antistatic wrist straps that have clip-on ends are commercially available.
Opening the Library Front Door
CAUTION:
Confined space. While reaching inside the library, take care to avoid
bumping your head or catching your clothing on protruding edges.
You must open the front door to perform manual operations. Refer to
Figure 4-6 on page 4-23 as you perform this procedure.
1. Make sure all jobs have ended and that the library is offline.

Cartridge Preparation
■ Cartridge Preparation
The following pages describe how to prepare a cartridge for use in the library.
Handling a Cartridge
Improper handling of cartridges can result in a loss of data or damage to a
library component.
To handle a cartridge correctly:
•
Make sure the leader block is latched every time you pick up a cartridge.
•
Keep cartridges clean.
•
Inspect a cartridge before each use, and never put a damaged cartridge into
a drive or library.
•
Never release a leader block and pull tape from a cartridge.
•
Never open a cartridge.
•
Do not handle tape that is outside the cartridge; the tape edge might be
damaged.
•
Do not expose the tape or cartridge to direct sunlight or moisture.
•
Do not expose a recorded cartridge to magnetic fields; this might destroy
data on the tape.
Inspecting a Cartridge
A defective or dirty cartridge can damage a drive. Always inspect a cartridge
before inserting it into a drive or a library. Refer to Figure A-3 on page A-5,

Diagnostic cartridge VOLSER
Cleaning cartridge VOLSER
Refer to Figure A-4 on page A-7 and perform these steps before inserting the
label into the recessed area on the cartridge:
CAUTION:
Make sure the edges of the labels do not curl; curling causes the
cartridge to stick in the drive loader and the robot will misread the
VOLSER.

Cartridge Maintenance
Storing Cartridges
When you store a cartridge:
•
Leave it in its protective wrapping until you are ready to use it.
•
Choose a clean environment that duplicates the conditions of the room in
which it is used.
•
Make sure it has been in its operating environment for at least 24 hours.
Cleaning the Cartridge Exterior
CAUTION:
Potential damage to cartridges: Do not use certain solvents to remove
labels or to clean cartridges because they can damage the cartridges.
Do not use acetone, trichloroethane, toluene, xylene, benzene, ketone,
methylethyl ketone, methylene chloride, ethyldichloride, esters, ethyl
acetate, or similar chemicals.
Wipe all dust, dirt, and moisture from the cartridge with a lint-free cloth.
Use StorageTek Tape Cleaner Wipes, PN 4046289-01, to clean the cartridges.
These wipes are saturated with isopropyl alcohol. Do not let any solution touch
the tape or get inside the cartridge.
Repairing a Detached Leader Block
When a tape is damaged, use a backup tape. If a leader block is detached, there
is no obvious damage to the cartridge or tape, and you have no backup tape,
you may repair the leader block using a repair kit provided by your supplier.
You can use the tape once to copy the data onto another tape.
