Base module
The 12U base module (see (page 10) and (page 11)) resides at the top of the library below the
2U reserved space or the switch for the internal network.
In the EML 71e, the base module contains a total of 71 LTO slots. Five slots within a load port are
configurable as either import/export slots or storage slots. No reserved slots are available.
In all other EML configurations, the base module contains a total of 103 LTO slots. Five slots are
configurable as either import/export slots or storage slots within a load port through the use of a
removable magazine. You can configure 9 slots as reserved. A common use for reserved slots is
for holding cleaning cartridges. The number of usable permanent slots depends on whether it is
the bottom module in the library because the library floor is always attached to the bottom module
Base module
11
and the floor limits the distance that the robot can travel. If the library floor is attached to the base
module, the bottom two rows (containing 16 slots) cannot be used.
The robotics unit is located at the top of the base module. When fully retracted (or parked), the
robot is fully contained within a 2U space. For safety reasons, the robot is parked before the center
door can be opened.
Within the robot, a lift table assembly contains a motor, pulleys, and cables to move the table up
and down to a specific level in the library. The picker assembly moves front and back, and
side-to-side along the table. A barcode scanner, attached to the bottom of the picker assembly,
scans targets on rack components for alignment, as well as barcode labels on tape cartridges, if
they are present. The picker has fingers that remove and insert tape cartridges among storage
slots, tape drives, or load ports.

7. Lift pole
8. Lift-flex cable
The base module has two windows on the front for viewing the robotic motion inside the library.
A load port door is located to the right front (see (page 10)) where a 5-cartridge magazine can
be loaded with tape cartridges for insertion into or removal from the library. The load ports are
mechanical devices that enable you to import and export tape cartridges to and from the library
through removable magazines, or act as additional library storage slots. These two functions for
a load port cannot be mixed; you must either designate an entire load port to be import/export
slots or storage slots. The base module contains a load port capable of using one 5-cartridge
magazine. An operator control panel (OCP) is located at the bottom front of the base module.
The base module contains an autoranging power supply (a redundant power supply is optional),
card cage, cable management features, and space for mounting up to four LTO-technology tape
drives on the back.
12
Library overview
The card cage in the base module (see (page 13)) provides six cPCI slots for the following:
•
Library robotics controller (see (page 16)) A single slot, 6U-wide cPCI board having Ethernet
ports and an RS-232 port. One Ethernet port connects this controller to the Interface Manager
card.
•
Interface Manager card (see (page 16)) A single slot, 4U-wide cPCI board having six Ethernet
ports. This board contains 128MB of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) plus a 256MB
CompactFlash memory card, both in their own sockets. A 2U-wide adapter panel next to the
4U-wide Interface Manager card enables it to fit in the lowest 6U-wide card cage slot.
•
Interface controller A cPCI board, having two FC ports for connecting to the SAN, along with
four FC ports for connecting up to four HP LTO2 or LTO3 tape drives. LTO4 and later tape
drives do not connect to the interface controller; instead, they connect directly to the SAN.
The interface controller is available in two speeds. The e2400-FC 2Gb interface controller
has an FC speed of 2 Gbps, is 6U wide, and uses a single slot (see (page 18)). The e2400-FC
4Gb interface controller has an FC speed of 4 Gbps, is 4U wide, and uses two slots (see
(page 18)).

5. Adapter panel
The cable management feature is a spool, mounted near the tape drives, that enables LAN and
FC cables to be dressed and routed away from hot plug or hot swap components.
Expansion modules
Three expansion modules are available to increase library capacity beyond that provided by the
base module. These expansions modules are:
•
Tape drive expansion module
•
Card cage expansion module
•
Capacity expansion module
IMPORTANT: If you are adding expansion modules to an EML 71e, you must purchase a capacity
upgrade license for Command View TL (part number AH063A). This license upgrades your base
module from 71 slots to 103 slots. You must also make sure that your rack has side panels and
doors installed to comply with regulatory requirements.
Expansion modules
13
Tape drive expansion module
The tape drive expansion module is an 8U chassis containing 94 LTO slots (84 permanent and
10 configurable). The number of usable permanent slots depends on whether it is the bottom module
in the library because the library floor is always attached to the bottom module and the floor limits
the distance that the robot can travel. If the library floor is attached to the tape drive expansion
module, the bottom row (containing seven slots) cannot be used.
CAUTION:
Never operate the library with the floor removed. The robot can be damaged.
The tape drive expansion module has three windows on the front for viewing the robotic motion
inside the library. To the right is a 10-cartridge configurable load port that holds two 5-cartridge
magazines.
On the back, the module contains one primary power supply with a slot provided for another
optional redundant power supply. Up to four Ultrium tape drives can be installed in the tape drive
expansion module. Cable management features are provided for cable routing and dressing.

3. Power supplies (optional redundant power supply shown) 4. Tape drives (LTO3 tape drives shown)
5. Cable management features
Card cage expansion module
The card cage expansion module is a 4U chassis that contains 48 permanent LTO slots and space
for additional interface controllers. This module must be located directly below the top 8U tape
drive expansion module. The number of usable permanent slots depends on whether it is the bottom
module in the library because the library floor is always attached to the bottom module and the
floor limits the distance that the robot can travel. If the library floor is attached to the card cage
expansion module, the last two rows (containing 16 slots) cannot be used.
CAUTION:
Never operate the library with the floor removed. The robot can be damaged.
The front of the card cage expansion module has one window for viewing robotic motion inside
the library. On the back, six PCI card slots are available for additional interface controllers to
expand the library tape drive capacity. One interface controller is added for every four additional
LTO2 or LTO3 tape drives. LTO4 and later tape drives do not connect to an interface controller;
instead, they connect directly to the SAN. Two power supplies are located at the bottom of the
card cage, and two cooling fans are on the right.

Capacity expansion module
The capacity expansion module is an 8U chassis containing 120 LTO slots (110 permanent and
10 configurable). If the library floor is attached to the capacity expansion module, the bottom row
containing 10 slots is blocked and cannot be used.
CAUTION:
Never operate the library with the floor removed. The robot can be damaged.
If the capacity expansion module is placed below the base module or a tape drive expansion
module, six slots at the top of the back wall cannot be used because the tape drives in the module
above it prevent the robot from reaching these slots.
On the front of the capacity expansion module are three windows for viewing the robotic motion
inside the library. To the right is a 10-cartridge configurable load port that holds two 5-cartridge
magazines.
On the back of the capacity expansion module are cable management features for cable routing
and dressing.

Controller cards
This section explains the function of the three major cards that control the library. These cards are:
•
Library robotics controller
•
Interface Manager card
•
Interface controller
Controller cards
15
Library robotics controller
The library robotics controller contains firmware to control the robot, communicate with the Interface
Manager card, manage the library servo and vision control, and monitor the door and load port
sensor status.
Robot commands are sent from hosts in the SAN to an interface controller, which directs them over
an internal Ethernet network to the library robotics controller. The library robotics controller translates
these commands into movements to be performed by the robot.

1. Private Ethernet port (not used)
2. Public Ethernet port (connection to Interface Manager
card)
3. Reserved port (not used)
4. CLI port (RS-232–HP services only)
Interface Manager card
The Interface Manager card is an HP proprietary management card designed to consolidate and
simplify the management of multiple interface controllers installed in the library. It also provides
SAN-related diagnostics and management for library components, including the interface controllers,
tape drives, and robotics. The Interface Manager card, in conjunction with HP Command View TL
software, provides remote management of the library by using a serial, Telnet, or Web-based
graphical user interface (GUI).

Library overview
The Interface Manager card communicates with the management station over the LAN. The
management station is a Microsoft Windows-based PC (server) that hosts the Command View TL
software. Ideally, the management station should have a static IP address, and be dedicated for
use with the Interface Manager card and Command View TL software.
IP connections on the EML can be IPv4 or IPv6 format. The library can be configured to use one
or both formats, but can not operate if neither protocol is enabled. View the IP connections on the
Identity Screen (from the Home screen select Status, then Identity Screen).

Enable or disable the protocols from the Change Network Settings screen, then view and save the
settings from that same screen.
To view and change the settings for either IPv4 or IPv6:
1. From the Home screen, select Configuration.
2. From the Library Configuration menu select Change Network Settings.

To save any changes to the network settings, select the Save button at the bottom, right of the
OCP.
Any client machine on the LAN can communicate with the Interface Manager card either through
the GUI or through a command line interface (CLI). At a higher level, multiple libraries, each
containing an Interface Manager card, can be connected to a single management station. Each
Interface Manager card can communicate with only one management station, but the management
station can communicate with multiple Interface Manager cards.
After being configured, the Interface Manager card is used to configure the interface controllers
based on knowledge of the library and SAN. As robotics commands are received from the interface
controllers, the Interface Manager card acts as a switch to relay these commands to the library
robotics controller. The Interface Manager card contains on-board Flash memory to provide a
persistent history of the library and storage network health.
Interface controller
The interface controller is an HP proprietary card that provides FC connectivity for LTO2 and LTO3
tape drives and robotics in the SAN. Commands, data, and status information are transferred to
and from this controller, from hosts, the robot, and the LTO2 and LTO3 tape drives. One interface
controller can manage up to four LTO2 or LTO3 tape drives.
LTO4 and later tape drives do not connect to an interface controller; instead, they connect directly
to the SAN. Libraries that contain only LTO4 or later tape drives still need one interface controller
which is used to direct commands to the robot. The interface controller is available in two speeds:
2 Gbps and 4 Gbps.

Library overview
Changing the master controller (SIPP master)
One interface controller is assigned by the Interface Manager card as the master controller the
SIPP master. Only the SIPP master is designated to send commands to the library robotics controller.
If multiple interface controllers are present, Command View TL software, through the Cabling View,
can be used to determine which one is acting as the SIPP master. Changing the SIPP master requires
a service-level password and command using the CLI (Telnet or serial). The commands are:

get a 2–day ltt service password. Find the interface controller number by using the SHOW
INTERFACE INFO ALL CLI command.
If the master interface controller (designated SIPP master) is replaced, the Hardware Replacement
wizard sets up the SIPP master. If the master interface controller (designated SIPP master) is moved
to another interface controller in the library, perform the following manual service steps:
1. Remove all partitions.
2. Remove all host maps.
3. Log in to the CLI and obtain service-level access.
4. Use the SET IPCONNECTION MASTER X command to make a particular interface controller
the SIPP master. Currently, the Interface Manager card does not automatically failover an
interface controller, even if the previous SIPP master is missing.
5. Reconfigure maps and partitions.
Functional description
The library receives commands and data throughout the SAN from hosts running applications from
approved independent software vendors (ISVs). Host bus adapters (HBAs) in servers send this traffic
over FC links, usually through FC switches. For LTO4 and later tape drives, the traffic goes directly
to the tape drive; but for LTO2 and LTO3 tape drives, the traffic first goes through an interface
controller. One interface controller can connect up to four LTO2 or LTO3 tape drives. For all
libraries, regardless of whether they contain LTO2 and LTO3 or LTO4 and later tape drives, at
least one interface controller is required to pass tape cartridge changer (robotics) commands to
the Interface Manager card over a private network. The Interface Manager card passes these SCSI
commands on to the library robotics controller over the private network, taking advantage of the
error handling and retry capabilities of TCP/IP.

14. Switch for the internal network
In addition to receiving traffic from the interface controllers, the Interface Manager card receives
command and diagnostic requests over an Ethernet connection from three other possible sources.
The majority of requests come from a management station where Command View TL software
resides. The other two sources are through a Telnet session or a serial interface. The Interface
Manager card works in the background to manage library functions. It configures the interface
controllers to direct commands from host systems to the appropriate LTO2 or LTO3 tape drive or
to the library robotics controller.
The library robotics controller receives commands over an internal private network and from the
OCP. It manages robotics movement, monitors the door and load port sensor status, and stores
library information in volatile memory.
Load ports and magazines
The load ports are mechanical devices on the front of the library that enable you to import and
export tape cartridges to and from the library through removable magazines, or act as additional
library storage slots. These two functions for a load port cannot be mixed; you must either designate
an entire load port to be import/export slots or storage slots. The base module contains a load
port capable of using one 5-cartridge magazine. The 8U expansion modules contain load ports
capable of using two 5-cartridge magazines each.
20
Library overview
Figure 16 Library load ports on 40U configuration
Tape drives
The Ultrium tape drive is a high performance streaming tape drive that uses LTO technology. The
library can use Ultrium 460 (LTO 2), Ultrium 960 (LTO 3), Ultrium 1840 (LTO4), Ultrium 3280
(LTO5) and Ultrium 6650 (LTO6) tape drives.
The Ultrium 960 and later include support for both rewriteable and Write-Once, Read-Many
(WORM) tape cartridges. WORM tape cartridges provide an enhanced level of data security
against alteration of data because you cannot erase or overwrite them. To check whether your
backup or archive software application supports WORM tape cartridges, see the following web
site: http://www.hp.com/go/connect.
For optimum performance, always use a tape cartridge that matches the specifications of your
tape drive. You can find comparisons between the Ultrium tape drives in (page 86).
Tape cartridges and cleaning cartridges are specifically formatted for use with Ultrium drives. To
order Ultrium tape cartridges, see “Ordering HP tape cartridges and barcode label packs” (page
102).
Switch for the internal network
CAUTION: Do not connect this switch to your local LAN. It is for internal library use only.
Connecting this switch to the LAN could cause library components to perform incorrectly or report
failures.
The 24-port Ethernet switch provides a private management network to connect the Interface
Manager card to the LTO4 or later tape drives. You must install one switch in each library that
contains LTO4 or later tape drives.

You might see these numbers in your application software or in error or diagnostic messages. Error
22
Library overview
messages often include a slot location in the format MRC x,y,z. This identifies a module (x), row
(y), and column (z) location.
Each module has a different number of available slots, but a common numbering scheme for
identifying the slot location.
The library numbers the LTO slots using the following scheme:
•
In general, the library numbers the slots one module at a time, starting with the top module.
For slot numbering purposes, the 12U base module is considered to be two modules: an 8U
base module and a 4U base module.
•
Within each module, column numbering starts with 1 at the left column as viewed from the
front of the library.
•
Within each module, row numbering starts with 1 at the top row.
•
Any reserved slots, located in the first column of the 8U base module, and taking up as many
as nine slots, are not included in the numbering scheme. A common use for reserved slots is
for holding cleaning cartridges.
NOTE:
•
Reserved slots are not available on the EML 71e.
If the load port slots are configured as import/export slots, they are skipped and not counted
in the numbering of storage slots. If the load port slots are instead configured as storage slots,
they are counted in the numbering scheme.
NOTE: Reconfiguring the load port slots for either import/export or storage changes the slot
numbering in any lower modules the next time you perform an inventory.
•
Some slots are not available in the bottom module in the library because the floor limits the
distance that the robot can travel.
CAUTION:
Never operate the library with the floor removed. The robot can be damaged.
The slot numbering for various modules are shown on the following pages:
•
Base module of the EML 71e ((page 24))
•
Base module of all other configurations ((page 25))
•

Command View TL
Command View TL provides a browser-based GUI for remote management and monitoring of the
Interface Manager card through a LAN. Command View TL is the preferred method for controlling
the Interface Manager card. In conjunction with the Interface Manager card, Command View TL
provides the following:
•
Configuration and management of the Interface Manager card and FC interface controllers
•
Management of the entire library system
•
Hardware inventory and identity information
•
Status information for connected hardware
•
Error reporting and comprehensive error logs
•
Firmware management
•
License management
Command View TL is installed on a management station and communicates with the Interface
Manager card through the LAN. The management station processes information from the Interface
Manager card and serves up the Command View TL GUI. You can access Command View TL from
26
Library overview
the management station directly, or through any client on the LAN using a browser-based GUI.
Multiple Command View TL clients can be simultaneously open across the LAN, and multiple
libraries can be managed through the Command View TL software.
See the Command View TL documentation at http://www.hp.com/support/cvtl for prerequisites,
installation, and operating instructions.
IMPORTANT: If you are upgrading an EML 71e, you must purchase a capacity upgrade license
for Command View TL (part number AH063A). This license upgrades your base module from 71
slots to 103 slots.
Library and Tape Tools
Library and Tape Tools (L&TT) is a collection of storage hardware management and diagnostic
tools assembled into a single, convenient program. L&TT offers a GUI or command screen interface
(CSI), enabling you to perform the following functions with the library:
•
Installation check Guides you through a basic installation check of the library. The software
helps you choose an appropriate HBA, making sure that the device is detected by the system,
and verifying key device functionality.
•
Device identification Identifies the storage products connected to the system, along with key
information on product configuration and status.
•
Troubleshooting tests Provides various tests to verify product functionality or to isolate product
issues. Tests include device self-tests, read/write tests on tape drives, exerciser tests for
autoloaders and libraries, and specific device utilities.
•
Support ticket generation If you experience a problem with a storage product, L&TT can
generate a support ticket that includes essential information for troubleshooting the problem.
•
Automatic notification of Web updates If a connection to the Internet is present and Web
updates are enabled in the tool preferences, L&TT automatically informs you of the following
updates, if available, each time the program is started:
◦
New versions of L&TT
◦
New firmware files for connected devices
◦
New device-specific functionality (such as new or updated tests) for connected devices

2 Using the library
This chapter describes operating procedures for the library.
Powering on the library
1.
Close the center door of the library and turn the center-door knob one-quarter turn clockwise
to lock it.
Figure 24 Closing the center door
2.
At the back of the library, press the library main power switch to the I (On) position.
Figure 25 Library main power switch control
1. Library main power switch
NOTE: The following step applies only when the library is powered on for the first time or
when a new interface controller is installed. This step is necessary to put the interface controller
into managed mode.
28
Using the library
3.
If this is the first time the library has been powered on after delivery, or if a new interface
controller was installed, configure the interface controller so that it is recognized by the Interface
Manager card. Do one of the following:
•
If your library has an e2400-FC 2Gb interface controller, wait approximately two minutes,
and turn off the main power switch. Wait several seconds and then turn on the power
switch again.
•
If your library has an e2400-FC 4Gb interface controller, reset the interface controller
twice. To reset the interface controller, insert a paper clip into the reset hole. After resetting
the interface controller, wait three minutes, then reset it again.
NOTE: A 71e library requires approximately 15 minutes to initialize. All other library models
require up to an hour to initialize and do an inventory. Nothing appears on the OCP for the
first few minutes of this process.
Powering off the library
1.
2.
3.
Use your backup software to stop all library activity and make sure the picker is empty.
On the OCP, select the Operations→Unlock Door command to park the robot.
After the robot is parked, press the main power switch ((page 28)) to the O (Off) position.
Center-door interlock
The center door on the front of the library cannot be opened until a password-protected command
to unlock the center door is selected on the OCP. This command parks the robot, and actuates a
lever that enables you to open the center door. Even if the unit is powered off, the robot must be
parked before you can open the center door. If the robot is not parked prior to removing power,
you cannot readily open the center door.
Performing an inventory
The library does an inventory at three different times:
•
When you turn on the power to the library
•
When you reboot the library (Operations→Reboot Library)
•
When you open and close the center door of the library (Operations→Unlock Door )
During the inventory:
•
The library robotics controller applies voltage to the motors (picker, reach, wrist, and lift drive)
to obtain range of motion for each motor.
•
The range of motion of the robot is tested.
•
The targets and labels are read for calibration purposes.
•
The barcode scanner looks at each slot to see if it contains a tape. The library robotics controller
stores this information. You must configure the library to use or not use barcode labels
(Configuration→Library Configuration→Configure Inventory Mode). If barcode labels are not
used, the inventory time may take as long as an hour, and a tape cartridge in a slot is only
known to the library as being full.
Attaching barcode labels to tape cartridges
Attaching barcode labels enables the library and application software to identify the tape cartridge
quickly, thereby speeding up inventory time. When a barcode label is not used, the library simply
designates that tape slot as being full. Even though the library functions without barcode labels,
Powering off the library
29
HP recommends that you use them on your tape cartridges. Your host software can use barcode
labels to track the following information:
•
Date of format or initialization
•
Media pool of tape
•
Data residing on the tape
•
Age of the backup
•
Errors encountered while using the tape (to determine if the tape is faulty)
CAUTION: Handle tape cartridges with care. Do not drop or mishandle them, or place them
near sources of electromagnetic interference. Rough handling can damage the tape cartridge
making it unusable and potentially hazardous to the tape drives.
CAUTION: The misuse of barcode technology can result in backup and restore failures. To ensure
that your barcodes meet HP's quality standards, always purchase them from an approved supplier
and never print barcode labels yourself. For more information, see the order form provided with
the library, as well as the Barcode Label Requirements, Compatibility and Usage white paper
available from http://www.hp.com/support.
NOTE: For information on ordering tape cartridges and barcode labels, see “Ordering HP tape
cartridges and barcode label packs” (page 102).
Ultrium tape cartridges have a recessed area located on the face of the tape cartridge next to the
write-protect switch. Use this area for attaching the adhesive-backed barcode label. Only apply
labels onto the tape cartridge in this designated area. For successful operation of your tape library,
place the barcode label entirely within the recessed area, making sure that no part of the label
extends outside.
Figure 26 Proper barcode label placement
Position the barcode label as shown in the following figure, with the alphanumeric portion facing
the hub side of the tape cartridge (LTO2) or numeric portion away from the hub (LTO3 and later).
Never apply multiple labels onto a tape cartridge, because extra labels can cause the tape cartridge
to jam inside a tape drive.
Always use the proper barcode labels for your tape drive technology. An L2 (Ultrium 460), L3
(Ultrium 960), L4 (Ultrium 1840), or L5 (Ultrium 3280), L6 (Ultrium 6650) identifier is located at
the end of the 8-character Ultrium barcode labels on data cartridges. The universal LTO cleaning
cartridges have a CLN and L1 identifier on the label.
30
Using the library
Figure 27 Attaching an Ultrium barcode label
Setting the write-protect switch
Each tape cartridge has a sliding write-protect switch. This switch determines whether new data
can be written to the tape cartridge (write-enabled) or whether data on the tape cartridge is
protected from being erased or overwritten (write-protected).
By moving the switch to the left, the tape cartridge is write-enabled. By moving the switch to the
right, the tape cartridge is write-protected.

5. Insertion arrow
Inserting tape cartridges into the load port
Inserting tapes through the center door of the library should only be done when bulk loading. At
all other times, load tape cartridges into the library through the load port. Not using the load port
stops all robotic activity and tape movement, and requires a complete library inventory before
operations can resume. When using the load port, tape cartridges are inserted into 5-cartridge
magazines, which are placed into either the 5-cartridge load port or a 10-cartridge load port. To
use a load port:
1. Attach a barcode label to each tape cartridge (see (page 29)).
2. Write-protect or write-enable each tape cartridge as appropriate (see (page 31)).
3. On the OCP, select Operations→Unlock Load Ports. If the load ports are password protected
and you are prompted to enter the password, use the keypad that appears on the OCP to
enter the password, then press the Enter key on the touchscreen. All load port doors open.
Setting the write-protect switch
31
4.
Grab the handle on the magazine and pull it out of the library.
CAUTION: Guard plates prevent access to the inside of the library when a load port
magazine is removed. These doors will move back out of the way when a magazine is
reinserted. You should not attempt to otherwise move these guards, nor gain access to the
library through the load ports.
5.
Insert the tape cartridges into any available slots in the magazine.
CAUTION: Excessive force when inserting a magazine can cause a tape cartridge to unseat
and extend into the path of the robot.
6.
7.
8.
Align the magazine with the track on the load port door and gently slide the magazine through
the spring door and fully into the load port.
Close the load port door.
After all load port doors are closed, the library does an inventory of the load ports.
Figure 29 Inserting a magazine into the load port
Using the OCP
The OCP is an LCD screen located on the front of the library that is operated by touch. The icons,
text, and tabs on the OCP enable you to obtain information about the library, execute library
commands, and test library functions.

33
Figure 31 Menu screen
The status bar is a quick indicator of library health. The bar is green when the library is functioning
normally, yellow during a warning condition, and red during an error condition. Touching the
status bar takes you to the Health Summary screen.
The detailed functions of the four top-level menu tabs (Status, Configuration, Operations, and
Support) are discussed later. Selecting any of these four tabs takes you to menu items under that
screen category.
Five navigation tabs can be displayed at the bottom of the screen. The thumbtacked (in or out) tab
was discussed in (page 33). The remaining tabs are:
•
Help Displays help text for features appearing on that screen.
•
Page Up Scrolls text to a previous page when text is longer than a page in size.
•
Page Down Scrolls text to the following page when text is longer than a page in size.
•
Back Moves you one level up in the menu tree. All screens except the Home, test status, error
message, and keypad screens have this tab at the lower, right corner. Returning to the Home
screen removes all password privileges previously granted through the OCP.
Timeouts
The library enters a timeout state after five minutes of inactivity. In this state:
•
The OCP backlight turns off.
•
Password privileges are removed on all screens granted access.
•
The OCP returns to either the Home screen or a thumbtacked screen, if one is designated. If
a thumbtacked screen consists of more than one page, the pages cycle every five seconds.
Touching a screen in a timeout state turns on the backlight. Subsequent touches after the backlight
is lit perform the requested command.
The following are special timeout cases:
34
•
When a service password is entered, the length of time to enter a timeout state changes from
5 minutes to 30 minutes. If the OCP is touched during the 30-minute period, the library reverts
to a normal 5-minute period before a timeout.
•
If a warning condition occurs while the library is timed-out, the backlight comes on for 30
minutes. If the OCP is touched during this 30-minute period, the library reverts to a normal
5-minute period before a timeout. Otherwise, the library re-enters a normal timeout state after
30 minutes.
•
If an error condition occurs while the library is timed-out, the backlight comes on for 60 minutes.
If the OCP is touched during this 60-minute period, the library reverts to a normal 5-minute
Using the library
period before a timeout. Otherwise, the library re-enters a normal timeout state after 60
minutes.
For certain functions, the timeout feature is disabled and re-enabled when the function completes.
This occurs:
•
During an operation and until the operation completes. For example, the OCP does not time
out while a tape drive cleaning operation is in progress but waits for the operation to complete
before starting the 5-minute timeout counter.
•
While displaying the results of any test operation. Select the Cancel or OK button to return to
the test menu screen.
•
When displaying an error report or menu after an error. The screen is treated as temporarily
thumbtacked, which clears the password protected screens after the normal timeout period,
but displays the screen until it is acknowledged.
•
When success or failure messages appear for an operation. The screen is temporarily
thumbtacked, clearing the password protected screens after the normal timeout period, but
the screen remains until acknowledged.

Status screen
The Status screen provides access to the current state of every library component.
Power supplies, load ports, tape drives, and interface controllers are all numbered from top to
bottom in the rack. However, power supplies are numbered by slot, so if a slot is not filled with a
power supply, the slot still receives a number. For example, the top power supply slot in the rack
is power supply 1. The power supply slot under that is power supply number 2. If a power supply
is on the same level horizontally (like those in the card cage expansion module), the one to the
right (facing the back of the rack) has the next highest number. If a component is removed, the
numbering does not change until you reboot the library. After a reboot, the library rediscovers all
components and reassigns numbers from top to bottom.

Library Configuration
enables the following items to be configured:
• Change Password—The library ships with a null password. Passwords
must be set to exactly eight characters, consisting of the numbers 0
through 9 and the period character. The password can be required to
unlock load ports. If you forget your password, contact HP support.
HP support can generate a temporary password that will enable you
to access the library.
Change Password is also used to set whether the admin password is
required to unlock the library load ports from the OCP. After entering
the existing or a new password (Configuration+Library
Configuration→Change Password), the Load Port Access Password
Option screen appears and indicates whether the password is required
or not. To toggle the setting to require the password, press the box
containing the text OCP admin password NOT required for load port
access. If the box already contains the text OCP admin password
required for load port access, the password is already required. (Press
the text box again, if appropriate, to disable password protection of
the load ports.) Press the Save button on the OCP.
• Configure Load Ports—Shows the number of installed load ports and
enables you to toggle between using each as a load port or for tape
slots. Configure it as a Load Port to move tapes in and out of the library.
Configure as Slots to increase the number of storage slots in the library.
Changing a load port configuration causes a library reboot.
• Change Network Settings—Configures the network settings for the
Interface Manager card, which can be automatically set with DHCP
(IPv4 DHCP is default), IPv4 static address, or variety of IPv6 addresses.

• Configure Barcode Reporting Formats—Defines how barcodes appear
on the OCP and sent to the host. Barcode reporting can be configured
as 6 to 8 characters and left or right aligned. If 6 characters with left
alignment is chosen, any characters after the six are truncated. With
6 characters and right alignment, only the last six characters are shown
with the beginning characters truncated.
• Configure Reserve Slots Up to nine slots can be reserved for special
purposes, such as cleaning tapes. The default is none. Select the number
you want to reserve and select Save.
NOTE:
Reserve slots are not available on the EML 71e.
• Configure Inventory Mode enables you to require barcodes on tape
cartridges, or to make them optional. Requiring barcodes significantly
shortens inventory time.

3 Troubleshooting and event reporting
This chapter describes how to solve problems you might encounter while operating the library.
For additional assistance with troubleshooting, use the online HP Guided Troubleshooting tool
which can be found at http://h20499.www2.hp.com/gts/sparks/public/
Admin_Navigate_All_All_All.
Periodic and routine maintenance
This section describes maintenance that occurs on a scheduled or as-needed basis.
Maintaining tape cartridges
NOTE: In addition to the information provided in this manual, see the HP Ultrium Tape Drive
User Guide from http://www.hp.com/support for more information.
For longer life of recorded or unrecorded tape cartridges:
•
Do not carry tape cartridges loosely in a container that exposes them to unnecessary physical
shock. Dropping or bumping tape cartridges can dislodge and damage internal components.
•
Store tape cartridges vertically in their protective cases until needed. Store tape cartridges in
a clean environment that duplicates the conditions of the room in which they will be used.
•
Use tape cartridges in temperatures between 10°C and 40°C (50°F to 104°F).
•
If a tape cartridge has been exposed to extreme heat or cold, stabilize the tape cartridge at
room temperature for the same amount of time it was exposed for up to 24 hours.
•
Keep tape cartridges out of direct sunlight, and do not place tape cartridges near
electromagnetic interference sources, such as terminals, motors, and video or X-ray equipment.
Performing so can cause data on the tape cartridge to be altered or erased.
•
Do not touch the tape medium or open the tape door unnecessarily. Dust and skin oils can
contaminate the tape, impact performance, and cause damage.
•
Store tape cartridges in a dust-free environment where the relative humidity is between 20
percent and 80 percent. For longer tape cartridge life, store the tape cartridge at 40 percent
to 60 percent relative humidity.
•
Use only HP qualified barcode labels. Apply them only in the designated areas of the tape
cartridge, and do not apply more than one per tape cartridge.
•
Follow guidelines provided by the tape cartridge manufacturer.
CAUTION: Do not touch the tape leader or the tape medium. Dust or skin oils can contaminate
the tape performance, and cause damage.
50
Troubleshooting and event reporting
Cleaning Ultrium tape drives
Be aware of the following:
•
Ultrium tape drives have been developed to have a minimal cleaning requirement.
•
An Ultrium universal cleaning cartridge can be used up to 50 times. If you are using an older
Ultrium cleaning cartridge, check the documentation that came with your cleaning cartridge.
CAUTION: Only use Ultrium universal cleaning cartridges in Ultrium tape drives. See
“Ordering HP tape cartridges and barcode label packs” (page 102) for obtaining supplies.
The same cleaning cartridge is used for all Ultrium tape drives.
•
If the cleaning cartridge is ejected immediately, is expired, or is not an Ultrium cleaning
cartridge, discard it and use a new one.
To clean the tape heads:
1. Move a cleaning cartridge into the tape drive using your application software. The tape drive
automatically loads the cleaning cartridge and cleans the heads. The cleaning cycle can take
up to five minutes.
2. Move the cleaning cartridge back to the proper storage bin using your application software.
Diagnostic support tools
The following tools are available to help you troubleshoot the library:
•
Command View TL
•
Library and Tape Tools
Command View TL version 1.5.5 or later provides SAN-related diagnostics for the major library
components such as interface controllers, tape drives, and robot. Only Command View TL can
generate support tickets for the interface controllers, the Interface Manager card, and the
management station. You should do all library firmware updates with Command View TL. To use
the Command View TL for library diagnostics, see the HP Interface Manager and Command View
TL User Guide.
Library and Tape Tools (L&TT) is installed on the host, which enables you to troubleshoot host
connectivity and performance. In addition, with L&TT you can:
•
Identify all FC devices connected to your system.
•
View detailed configuration, identification, inventory, and tape drive information for the library.
•
Run advanced diagnostic tests, including connectivity, read/write, media validation, and
testing library functionality.
•
View library and tape drive error logs.
•
Generate a detailed support file that can be E-mailed or faxed to your support representative
for analysis.
The L&TT diagnostic provides an intuitive GUI with integrated context-sensitive help, and can be
downloaded free of charge. Go to http://www.hp.com/support/tapetools and select HP L&TT
Tool.
Troubleshooting
An incorrect installation or configuration can cause platform problems. In this case, the library
appears to be operating normally, but no data can be interchanged, or performance is poor. You
also could get an error code on the OCP. To identify an error caused by this type of problem,
check your installation and configuration setup.
General tape drive errors usually result from a miscommunication between a library processor and
a tape drive processor, tape drive and tape interaction issues, or a mechanical malfunction within
Diagnostic support tools
51
the library. Both platform problems and general tape drive errors display an error message or
event code on the OCP. Use the event codes listed later in this chapter to help determine a recovery
procedure.
The library depends on several other components to operate correctly. Errors that seem to be
caused by the library are often a result of issues on the host, the network cabling, or with the
application software. When troubleshooting the library, begin by ruling out these components.
Your application software may need to be reconfigured or, in some cases, reinstalled after you
have installed additional tape drives or slots into the library. Changing the number of load ports,
number of reserved slots, or type of tape drive, might require changes to software. Some application
software may require the purchase of additional add-on components or licenses when increasing
the number of storage slots or tape drives. Contact your application software provider for more
information, or if your application software does not recognize newly installed storage slots or
tape drives.
Command View TL should be the first tool used to diagnose a problem, followed by L&TT. These
two applications generally provide more detail than the OCP, but the OCP can be an aid in
determining the cause of errors. Support tickets from Command View TL or L&TT contain full log
events for all components. The OCP only shows summary information for robotic events. A support
ticket has to be generated to access the event logs.
Using the OCP, you can check the event log on the Status screen for the five most recent
informational, warning, or critical events. The last event listed on the screen is the most recent event
that occurred. Events have a date stamp, code numbers, a brief text description of the problem,
and usually a location of the module or slot where the error took place. The following is an example
of an OCP log event, and what information is included:
2005-04-06T10:07:57.068, 0.0.0.0.0, 3200, ifm, (null), error, 3000,
3312, "(re . . "
Code values are decoded with a support ticket from Command View TL and L&TT. This OCP
message decodes to:
Date/time, address, opstate, source, source, severity, activity, event ID or result, additional
information.
In this case, the opstate is Ifm is ok, the activity is Cartridge Move and result is Get Failed.
For general troubleshooting, use the following table after you isolate your problem to a category
or specific area of the library, and then go to the reference mentioned that describes a corrective
action.

• Make sure that the designated tape cartridge is present and properly
seated. (For a tape drive, make sure that the tape cartridge is completely
unloaded.) Then, retry the command.
• Make sure that the tape cartridge has good barcode labels, or that the
library is configured to not use labels.
• On the OCP, make sure Support→Service Menu+autoaudit is turned On.
If autoaudit is Off, the library does not do an inventory and therefore might
report storage slots with tape cartridges as being empty.
• Perform an inventory by opening and closing the center door.
A move command failed.
• Review event logs for detailed information.
• Check the source and destination. The source should hold the tape cartridge
to be moved; the destination should be empty.
• Make sure that the picker is empty and that there are no obstructions.
• Retry the command.
Long inventory times.
Use barcoded media and configure the library to use barcodes. Expect
inventory times ranging from 30 minutes for a 24U library to 1 hour for a
40U library with unlabeled media.
Redundant power supply warning.
A warning indicates that the redundant power supply failed. Make sure that
there is AC power to the power supply. If it is receiving power, replace the
power supply.
Tape drive problems
IMPORTANT: For LTO4 or later tape drives, you must use FC port A to connect the tape drive to
the SAN unless you are using ETLA custom mapping in which case either port A or B can be used.
Table 25 Tape drive problems
Problem
Corrective action
The library is unable to communicate
with a tape drive.
This is indicated by a Drive Communication Time-out error.
• Tape drives added to new drive bays require a reboot.
• Check link indicators on the interface controllers (LTO2 and LTO3 tape
drives) or on the switch for the internal network (LTO4 and later tape drives).

Table 25 Tape drive problems (continued)
Problem
Corrective action
• Reseat the tape drive.
• Check tape drive status on the OCP and with Command View TL.
The tape drive does not eject a
cartridge.
• Attempt the operation from the application software.
• Open the center door, reach in, and then press the Eject button on the tape
drive in question. If this fails, press and hold the Eject button for at least
ten seconds to force an eject.
• Power off the library, disconnect the FC cables, power on the library, open
the center door, and press and hold the Eject button on the tape drive in
question.
The tape drive reports a read/write
error.
• Try using a new tape.
• Clean the tape drive.
• Run the tape drive assessment test using L&TT.
An LTO4 or later tape drive does not
link up
Some switch types require specific speed and topology settings. Try changing
the speed and topology settings with Command View TL or the Interface
Manager CLI.
• LTO4 and later tape drives have a default speed setting of auto negotiate.
Change the speed to 1Gb (LTO4 only), 2Gb, 4Gb, or 8Gb (LTO5 and
LTO6).
• LTO4 and later tape drives have a default auto negotiate topology setting
of loop-ptp which will try loop mode first, and then switch to point-to-point
if loop is not successful. Change the topology or mode setting to soft or
hard loop mode, or N_port mode which uses only point-to-point topology.
NOTE: Restoring the Interface Manager defaults with Command View TL or
the Interface Manager CLI will set the drive speed and topology back to the
auto negotiate settings.
Interface Manager card problems
In addition to the Command View TL GUI, the Interface Manager card can be managed through
a CLI. These CLI commands can be used to diagnose problems. You can access the CLI either
through a direct RS-232 serial connection or by using Telnet over the LAN. Refer to the HP Interface
Manager and Command View TL User Guide for instructions on using the CLI.
The following table describes common symptoms relating to the Interface Manager card and how
to resolve them. (page 60) provides more Interface Manager card fault isolation procedures through

Interface controller problems
Most problems with the interface controller occur during the initial installation. Before proceeding
with advanced troubleshooting techniques, make sure that all connections are correct and review
the configuration and firmware. If a new interface controller was installed, the library may need
to be rebooted for the controller configuration to be set.
LED indicators
The LED indicators on the interface controllers (see (page 44) and (page 44)) are useful for
diagnosing various problems:
•
FC port LEDs--Indicate FC activity (ACT) and link (LNK) status. If the link LED is not lit, it can
indicate a problem with an FC link. Make sure that the FC port configuration and cabling is
correct.
•
Ethernet LEDs--Indicate activity and link status. If one of these indicators is not lit or stays
continuously lit, it can indicate a problem with the network connection or cabling. Make sure
that the network connection is correct. The port must be connected to a 10/100Base-T Ethernet
network to function properly.
Basic troubleshooting
Simplify the installation by reducing it to the most basic configuration. Then, add elements one at
a time, making sure that the library operates correctly after each step.
Basic troubleshooting includes making sure that the setup and connections are correct:
•
The FC port connection
•
The interface controller configuration
•
Devices
•
Host configuration
•
HBA device driver information
•
Serial port configuration
Each of these topics is discussed in the following sections.
Troubleshooting
61
Examining FC port connection
Most hubs and switches have link indicators showing link status. When the interface controller is
connected and powered on, the link indicator appears solid. If it is not, examine the cabling or
connections.
To examine links:
•
Make sure that the library is not running any tasks before disconnecting any cables. Disconnect
and reconnect the FC cable. This procedure causes momentary activity of this indicator as the
link reinitializes.
•
Make sure that the cable type for the interface controller and the attached hub, HBA, or switch
are similar.
NOTE: By default, the FC port speed is set to 2 Gbps for the e2400-FC 2Gb interface
controller and to 4 Gbps for the e2400-FC 4Gb interface controller. Changes to the FC port
speed must be manually set, such as for 1 Gbps. If set incorrectly and the interface controller
is plugged into a Loop or Fabric, the unit can receive framing errors, which can be found in
the trace logs; the fiber link light will be off because of the incorrect FC link speed.
Examining the interface controller configuration
To examine the interface controller configuration, make sure that:
•
The interface controller speed is set correctly.
•
The connection type is set correctly.
•
The host is added to Secure Manager in Command View TL and given permission to
communicate with the library.
Examining devices
HP recommends using Command View TL to make sure that the devices are operating correctly.
Examining the host configuration
In some cases, the FC HBA or host device driver may not be working properly. Check the
configuration of these elements.
Check the release notes for the device driver to see if there are any specific issues or a required
configuration. Also, make sure that you are using the current version of the HBA driver.
Older applications can have expectations about what constitutes a valid SCSI ID, and thus may
not correctly handle certain mappings. This is not an issue for the operating system or most
applications. However, some applications may exhibit difficulties addressing target IDs greater
than 15 (16 and higher). To resolve this situation in a direct-attach configuration, configure the
interface controller to use hard addressing and set the AL_PA to a value that the HBA can map,
with an ID less than 16.
Examining HBA device driver information
Review the HBA device driver Readme.txt file for configuration specifics. An HBA may require
a different configuration. HBAs typically come with utility programs to view or change their
configurations.
Examining serial port configuration
If you have problems connecting to the serial interface, make sure that the configuration of the
terminal or terminal emulation program is correct.

Specifications and characteristics
B Regulatory statements
Federal Communications Commission notice
Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules and Regulations has established
Radio Frequency (RF) emission limits to provide an interference-free radio frequency spectrum.
Many electronic devices, including computers, generate RF energy incidental to their intended
function and are, therefore, covered by these rules. These rules place computers and related
peripheral devices into two classes, A and B, depending upon their intended installation. Class A
devices are those that may reasonably be expected to be installed in a business or commercial
environment. Class B devices are those that may reasonably be expected to be installed in a
residential environment (for example, personal computers). The FCC requires devices in both classes
to bear a label indicating the interference potential of the device as well as additional operating
instructions for the user.
FCC rating label
The FCC rating label on the device shows the classification (A or B) of the equipment. Class B
devices have an FCC logo or ID on the label. Class A devices do not have an FCC logo or ID on
the label. After you determine the class of the device, refer to the corresponding statement.
Class A equipment
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This
equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used
in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which
case the user will be required to correct the interference at personal expense.
Class B equipment
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions,
may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment
off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
•
Reposition or relocate the receiving antenna.
•
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
•
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit that is different from that to which the receiver
is connected.
•
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio or television technician for help.
Declaration of Conformity for products marked with the FCC logo, United States only
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference received, including interference that may cause und operation.
For questions regarding this FCC declaration, contact us by mail or telephone:
•
Hewlett-Packard Company P.O. Box 692000, Mail Stop 510101 Houston, Texas 77269-2000

Modification
The FCC requires the user to be notified that any changes or modifications made to this device
that are not expressly approved by Hewlett-Packard Company may void the user's authority to
operate the equipment.

D Installing a redundant PDU
PDU components
The library comes with one PDU installed. For a variety of reasons, it may be desirable or necessary
to add a second PDU to the library rack. The factors that determine when to add a second PDU
are described below.
The main PDU components are:
•
High voltage modular PDU, 200–240 VAC, 16 amp, part number 252663-B24 (kit includes
two power strips and mounting hardware)
•
Main power cord, L6-20P 20 amp, 220 V, twist lock, part number 340653-001
•
Power cords (PDU to library), 1/2 meter, part number 142257-B28
Leakage current
The most overriding reason to add a second PDU to the rack is to meet safety requirements for
leakage current. Regulations limit the amount of leakage current per power outlet to 3.5 mA. This
is the amount of current that may be returned through the ground line to the wall outlet, and therefore
is the amount of leakage current allowed per PDU.
The individual power supplies of the library may each contribute a maximum of 0.5 mA. This
means no more than seven of the library power supplies may be attached to a single PDU. A fully
configured library, with redundant power supplies, would necessitate 10 power supplies. In that
configuration, a second PDU is certainly required. Even a 32U-high configuration of the library
with redundant power supplies would require a second PDU. Even if redundant power supplies
are not currently installed, you should consider adding a second PDU when the library is expanded
above 24U in height. With a second PDU installed, upgrading to redundant power supplies in the
future is simplified by being able to just slide them into place and connect them to the power strip.
If equipment is added to the library rack from other sources, it is your responsibility to determine
the maximum leakage current from all the equipment using the PDU so that the 3.5 mA limit on a
single PDU is not exceeded.
Redundancy
Another important reason to add a second PDU to the library rack is to add another layer of power
redundancy to the product. As redundant power supplies are added to library modules, the system
can be made even more fail-safe by powering individual power supplies, one from each module,
with separate AC power circuits. This requires a second PDU.
Every library module level (for example, the base module, card cage expansion module, tape
drive expansion module, and so on) can have redundant power supplies added as an option.
Each module level, with each power supply powered from different AC circuits, ensures continued
library operation should one of the AC power outlets fail. The location of the power strips for the
second PDU are installed in a manner such that the power cords of the redundant power supplies
of each module level can easily reach the PDU.
Power rating
As was the case with leakage current, if equipment is added to the library rack from other sources,
it is your responsibility to make sure the power rating of the PDU and power cords are not exceeded
by the load of this additional equipment. The power rating of the PDU is sufficient to power up to
seven power supplies in the library that are allowed by the leakage current specification. You must
check the power ratings of any additional equipment added to the rack, the power rating of the
PDU, and the power rating of the power cords, to make sure all are within specified limits.
104 Installing a redundant PDU
Placement of redundant PDU components
The library primary PDU (#1) and two power strips (#1 and #3) are installed at the factory. The
redundant PDU (#2) is installed above the primary PDU, also in a 0U side mount position. The top
of PDU #1 is approximately 33 cm (13 inches) from the caster boss. The top of PDU #2 is placed
approximately 63 cm (25 inches) from the caster boss (see (page 105)).
Power strip #2 is placed equidistant between power strips #1 and #3.
Power strip #4 is placed in a position low in the rack so that it does not interfere with the power
cords coming from PDU #1 to power strips #1 and #3.
With properly placed power strips in a fully redundant 40U configuration, the top six power supply
cords go to power strips #1 and #2. One power cord at each redundant level goes to each power
strip.
Similarly, the bottom four power cords in a fully redundant configuration are divided between
power strips #3 and #4. By using 0.5-m (15-inch) power cords, the dressing should be minimal.
Figure 59 Redundant PDU and power strip placement
1. Power strip #2
2. Redundant PDU (#2)
3. Power strip #4
4. Caster boss
Installation of redundant PDU components
Refer to the instructions provided with your redundant PDU for installation steps. After installation,
dress all cords with cable ties. In addition, use cable ties to lock the power cords coming out of
the PDU that go to each power strip.

Class A digital
device
Class A equipment is intended for commercial installation.
Class I laser
product
Class 1 lasers are products where the power of the laser beam produced (the accessible emission)
is always below the Maximum Permissible Exposure value. Therefore, for Class 1 lasers the output
power is below the level at which it is believed eye damage will occur. Exposure to the beam of
a Class 1 laser will not result in eye injury. Class 1 lasers may therefore be considered eye safe.
Class II laser
product
Class 2 lasers are limited to a maximum output power of 1 mW. A person receiving an eye
exposure from a Class 2 laser, either accidentally or as a result of someone else's deliberate
action (misuse) will be protected from injury by their natural blink reflex. This is a natural involuntary
response which causes the individual to blink and avert their head thereby terminating the eye
exposure.
