instructions in the Getting Started Guide.
6
XenData 8-Slot / 48-Slot Library User Guide
Install the LTO tape drive(s) into a drive bay accessible from the rear of the library. Each LTO drive should
be flush with the back panel of the library. Finger-tighten the captive thumbscrews until the LTO drive is
secure.
4.4 Powering On and Off
Power-on the tape library
Power-on the library by depressing the power button on the front of the unit. The library will start to
initialize and the green ready light on the front of the library will start to flash. Wait until the tape
library has completed its inventory process and the ready light shows as steady green.
Power-Off the tape library
Ensure that all host computer has completed all operations. Power-off the LTO library by pressing
the power switch on the front of the library.
5. Using the Library
5.1 Using LTO Cartridges
Follow the guidelines below.
Do not drop a cartridge as excessive shock can damage it, making the cartridge
unusable.
Do not expose data cartridges to direct sunlight or sources of heat, including portable heaters and
heating ducts. The operating temperature range for data cartridges is 10 to 35C. The storage
temperature range is -40 to +60o C in a dust-free environment in which relative humidity is
always between 20 percent and 80 percent (non- condensing). If the data cartridge has been exposed to temperatures outside the specified ranges,
stabilize the cartridge at room temperature for the same length of time it was exposed to extreme
temperatures or 24 hours, whichever is less. Do not place data cartridges near sources of electromagnetic energy or strong magnetic
fields such as computer monitors, electric motors, speakers, or X-ray equipment. Exposure to
electromagnetic energy or magnetic fields can destroy data and the embedded servo code written
on the media by the cartridge manufacturer, which can render the cartridge unusable. Place identification labels only in the designated area on the cartridge.
7
XenData 8-Slot / 48-Slot Library User Guide
5.2 Barcode Labels
The library contains a barcode reader that reads the tape labels and stores the inventory data in memory.
The library then provides the inventory information to the host application, OCP, and RMI. Having a
barcode label on each tape cartridge enables the barcode reader to identify the cartridge quickly, thereby
speeding up inventory time. Make it a practice to use bar code labels on your tape cartridges.
LTO cartridges have a recessed area located on the face of the cartridge next to the write protect switch.
Use this area for attaching the adhesive backed barcode label. Carefully apply the label as shown.
5.3 Write Protecting Cartridges
All rewriteable data cartridges have a write-protect switch to prevent accidental erasure or overwriting of
data. Before loading a cartridge into the device, make sure the write-protect switch on the front of the
cartridge is in the desired position.
▪
Slide the switch to the left to allow the device to write data to the cartridge.
▪
Slide the switch to the right to write-protect the cartridge. An indicator, such as a red mark or
small padlock, is visible showing that the cartridge is write-protected.

5.4 Magazines
Tape cartridges are stored in magazines which may be removed and inserted individually. Magazines are
locked to prevent unauthorized removal when inserted in the library and unlock Magazine access may
become password protected. For safety reasons, the robotic motion is stopped whenever when a
magazine is removed from the library. This takes the library offline which means it is no longer under
control of the host system.
The magazines can be unlocked using the Operator Control Panel (OCP) or the Remote Management
Interface (RMI).
Slot numbering for the 8-slot library is shown below.
Slot numbering for the 48-slot library is shown below

XenData 8-Slot / 48-Slot Library User Guide
5.5 Mail Slot
Mail slots are used to import/export individual tape cartridges without interrupting the library operation.
The command to open the mail slot may be denied if the robotics is busy with some operation. In that
case “Busy“ is displayed on the OCP and the command has to be repeated once the robotics operation is
finished.
The 8-slot library has a single mail slot (magazine slot 1) in the left position.
The 48-slot library has a triple mail slot in the top left side.
6. Operator Control Panel (OCP)
The OCP can be used to monitor, configure, and control the library from the front panel.
6.1 Operating Modes
The OCP operates in two basic modes:
User interaction mode
▪
This mode is employed when a user is pushing buttons on the operating panel. System driven mode
▪
This is the normal mode of operation. In this mode, the operating panel displays status
associated with the actions that were caused from commands issued from the host software
application. Actions like loading, rewinding or moving tape cartridges will be displayed. 10
XenData 8-Slot / 48-Slot Library User Guide
Whenever an operating button is pressed and released, the operating panel automatically transitions to
user interaction mode. The user interaction mode will be active until 3 minutes after the user stops
pushing buttons, or the requested robotic action stops – whichever is longer. At this time, the operating
panel will return to the system driven mode.
In case of administrator programed user security feature the user interaction mode is restricted to the
information and login menu item, until a login with correct PIN is done.
6.2 8-Slot OCP
6.2.1 Power-Up Display
When the 8-slot library is powered up, or is reset from power on, it goes through several internally
controlled processes that allow it to be initialized and enter normal operation mode. These processes are
called Power-On-Self-Test (POST). While the POST is occurring, the OCP will have appropriate progress
information displayed to keep the user informed. When the library completes POST, it will display the
current drive mount status in the OCP home screen. If the drive is empty, the following status will be
displayed.
11
XenData 8-Slot / 48-Slot Library User Guide
6.2.2 Note about the LEDs
All LEDs are updated during power up and reset sequences. Upon power up or after software reset, the
library will illuminate all LEDs as soon as POST allows. This will help the user to verify if all LEDs are
functional. When initialization starts, all LEDs will be extinguished and the ready/activity LED will flash at
a rate of approximately 1- second per cycle, 50% duty cycle. When the robot mechanical initialization is
complete, the ready/activity LED will stop flashing and be constantly illuminated. The magazine status
LED’s will also show the appropriate status (locked, unlocked or removed).
If a library failure occurs, the ready/activity LED will be turned off and the error LED will be illuminated.
The OCP will also display an appropriate error code to help identify the failure.
6.2.3 Input Modes (OCP Navigation)
There are several modes to enter values in the different menu items within the OCP. These modes differ
depending upon the menu item selected. The data entry modes are selectable predefined values, toggle
values (e.g. on/off) and numerical value entry like network addresses.
Selectable predefined values
After navigating to the menu item, the various predefined values can be selected with the <PREVIOUS>
and <NEXT> button. As soon as the display shows the correct value it can be entered by pressing the
<ENTER> button.
Toggle values
Toggle values are used to switch between two different states like on and off. After navigating to the
menu item the display shows the actual state. Pressing the <ENTER> button will switch to the possible
new state. Pressing the <ENTER> button a second time will take over this new state. This procedure
works vice-versa.
Numerical values
Numerical values are used for IP network addresses, PIN numerical entries and other configuration
entries. After navigating to the menu item, the actual current value, will be displayed and the cursor stays
on the left most significant digit. The single digit can be incremented / decremented with the
<PREVIOUS> and <NEXT> buttons. After selecting the correct value pressing the <ENTER> button will
enter the selected value and the cursor is moved to the next editable digit to the right. It can be edited in
the same way. After pressing the <ENTER> button at the last digit the complete entry will be stored.
Pressing the <CANCEL> button any time before the last digit complete entry will cancel the whole edit
process and the original value will become valid again.

6.3.1 48-Slot Power-Up Display
When the library powers up, or resets, it goes through several internally controlled processes that
initialize and prepare the unit for normal operation. These processes are called Power-On-Self-Test
(POST). While the POST is in process, the OCP will have appropriate information displayed to keep the
user informed. When the library finishes POST, it will display the current library status for a defined time
or until a front panel key is pressed.
After this initial status screen the home screen will be displayed until, any key is pressed. This home
screen shows the overall health of the library, indicating the status of the robotic and the connected
drives.
6.3.2 48-Slot: Note about LEDs
All LEDs are updated during power up and reset sequences. Upon power-up or software reset, the library
will illuminate all LEDs as soon as POST allows. This will help the user to verify if all LEDs are functional.
When initialization starts, all LEDs will be extinguished and the ready/activity LED will flash at a rate of
approximately 1- second per cycle, 50% duty cycle. When the mechanical initialization is complete, the
ready/activity LED will stop flashing and remain constantly illuminated.
If a library failure occurs, the ready/activity LED will be turned off and the error LED will be illuminated.
The OCP will also display a specific error code to help identify the failure.
The following are additional operational details of LEDs.
The <Ready/Activity> LED will be lit any time the unit is powered on and functional (i.e.
successfully completed the power-on self-test). The LED will blink whenever there is any tape
library or drive activity. The LED will also blink when the unit is offline. The <Clean> LED will only be lit when a cleaning required has been issued by one of the drives.
The LED will be turned off after a successful drive cleaning operation is performed to the
requesting drive. 23
XenData 8-Slot / 48-Slot Library User Guide
The <Media Attention> LED will indicate that there is a piece of LTO media which is
bad/marginal, or invalid. The LED will be cleared when all marginal and invalid cartridges have
been exported from the tape library. The <Error> LED will be lit when there is an unrecoverable (i.e. hard) drive or tape library failure.
This will occur simultaneously with the hard error message displayed on the screen; the LED will
remain illuminated until the error state is resolved. 6.3.3 48-Slot Input Modes
There are several modes to enter values in the different menu items. These values are selectable
predefined values, toggle values (e.g. on/off) and numerical values like network addresses.

The following information is displayed:
1 Library Master Drive
▪
This is the drive number the library LUN will be hosted by (appear as a LUN of) 2 Library Mode
▪
Specifies the library mode for the library. The library supports three behavior modes: Random,
Sequential, and Automatic.
<Random> In random mode, the library does not automatically load tapes into the tape
drives. The random mode is used with a full featured or a robotics-aware backup
application and is the most common mode of operation. <Sequential> In sequential mode, the library automatically loads and unloads tapes from
the tape drive. The sequential mode is used when the backup software is not robotics-
38
XenData 8-Slot / 48-Slot Library User Guide
aware or was designed for standalone drives only. <Automatic> This is the default mode. In automatic mode, the library switches from
sequential mode into random mode when it receives library SCSI commands through
its unique LUN ID. In sequential mode, the user can set the <Loop> and <Autoload>
options. In the auto load mode, the library automatically loads the tapes from the lowestnumbered full slot into the tape drive. In loop mode, the original first tape in the sequence
is reloaded after the library has cycled through all available tapes. 3 Active Slots
▪
In this field the user can select the number of slots in the library that are available to the backup
software. 4 Mail slot Enabled
▪
Enabling the mail slot in the library will reduce the total number of storage slots. 5 Auto Clean Enabled
