Overview

1.1.4 Cartridge Access Station (CAS)

CAS is a mechanism through which the operator inserts or ejects cartridges when the device is operating. A special magazine is used for inserting or ejecting cartridges and up to five volumes of cartridges can be inserted/ejected simultaneously for each CAS. CAS consists of the following mechanisms.

Figure 1.8 CAS mechanism appearance

1-10 C144-E072-01EN

1.1 Device Configuration

(1) External door

Door that covers the magazine insertion/ejection port. The external door is normally locked by covering the magazine insertion/ejection port. The external door can be unlocked by using an operation from the operator panel so that a magazine can be inserted or ejected. By closing this door after inserting a magazine, an inventory of the magazine is made to manage information about cartridges in the magazine.

(2) Internal door

Safety door to screen off the operator from the device interior when no magazine is inserted in CAS

(3) Magazine insertion/ejection port

Port for inserting a magazine into the device or ejecting it from the device.

(4) Positioning projection

Projection with a tilt to position the magazine correctly in CAS

The following explains how to insert and eject a magazine using CAS.

1.1.4.1 Inserting a magazine from CAS

1) After the CAS external door is unlocked with an operation from the operator panel, the external door opens slightly. By hand, gently open the external door to the left until you hear a click.

2) Holding the handle on the rear of the magazine, insert the magazine from the magazine insertion port into the CAS and push it into its normal position.

1.1 Device Configuration

Notes:

The magazine is tilted while pushing it into CAS so that it rests on the

positioning projection ( Figure 1.10

). If the magazine is pushed

further, it is completely over the positioning projection ( Figure 1.11

).

This state in which the magazine is pushed in completely is its regular position. Always push the magazine into this position. The external door is constructed so that it cannot be closed if the magazine is not in its regular position.

(4) CAS insertion/ejection handle

This handle is used for pushing in/pulling out the magazine at insertion into or ejection from CAS.

(5) Lever for preventing cartridges from being inserted backwards

Lever to keep cartridges from being inserted backwards. If an attempt is made to insert a cartridge into the magazine with the cartridge having the wrong orientation, this lever is extended, making insertion into the CAS physically impossible.

1.1.5.1 Inserting cartridges into the magazine

1) Rotate the cartridge drop prevention lever counterclockwise as viewed from the direction in which cartridges will be inserted.

Figure 1.14 Figure for explaining cartridge insertion method a

2) Insert the cartridge into the magazine using the other hand while maintaining the above state.

C144-E072-01EN 1-17

Overview

Figure 1.15 Figure for explaining cartridge insertion method b

* Orientation of cartridges during insertion

Set the orientation of the magazine so that the bar code label affixed to the cartridge rear side faces the front of the magazine and the bottom (surface with the hub) of the cartridge is pointing downward. Do this when the cartridge storage shelf unit is facing the front of

the cartridge and the handle for transportation is pointing upward ( Figure 1.15

). If not set

in the correct orientation, the lever for keeping the cartridge from being inserted backwards is extended, preventing insertion of the magazine into CAS. In this case, set the cartridge so that its orientation is correct.

1.1.5.2 Ejecting cartridges from the magazine

1) Hold the magazine by one hand and then rotate the cartridge drop prevention lever using the same hand.

Remarks:

Keep in mind the orientation of the magazine because cartridges will drop if the cartridge storage shelf unit is oriented downward.

2) Remove the cartridge using the other hand while maintaining the above state.

1.2 Functional Overview

This section explains the functions provided by the magnetic tape library device (referred to as the library hereafter).

1.2.1 FC control function

The library is controlled by software that controls a magnetic tape library device, such as backup software (collectively referred to as backup software hereafter).

The library is connected via the Fibre Channel (FC) interface to a server (such as Solaris and WindowsNT4.0/2000) on which the backup software is installed.

The backup software, through the Fibre Channel interface, requests the robot to transport cartridges to the drive or requests the drive to access data.

Remarks:

The library can have up to four connection ports for the SCSI or fiber channel cables. To add a connection port, consult with the maintenance person.

This is a function only for mounting a cartridge in response to a request from the host to mount a cartridge on the drive without waiting until the drive is ready.

The fast load function can be set from the operator panel. For details on how to set the

function, see 4.5.2, "Setting library information."

Important:

Depending on the backup software, the fast load function may not be usable. For more information, check the backup software specifications (The factory default for the fast load function is

"disabled").

Important:

If the fast load function is disabled, a timeout may occur for some kinds of backup software. Check the backup software that is being used to ensure that the timeout period can be changed.

C144-E072-01EN 1-29

Overview

This is a function for updating cartridge management information by reading the bar code labels affixed to the cartridges inside the library. The inventory function is used in the following cases:

When the library is turned on (only if the auto-inventory function is "enabled")

When the inventory is operated from the operator panel

When the front door is opened and closed to insert or eject a large number of cartridges.

Remarks:

For details on how to make an inventory from the operator panel, see

4.13, "Making an inventory."

Auto-inventory function

This is a function for making an inventory as an initialization operation when the library is turned on.

Disabling the auto-inventory function can reduce the library startup time. However, if you insert or eject a cartridge with the front door open after turning off the library, the information is not automatically reflected in the management information of the library.

If you use the library in this state, the library may malfunction (The factory default for the auto-inventory function is "enabled").

Remarks:

If you turn off the library, open the front door, and change the position of a cartridge that is not a CAS cartridge while the autoinventory function is disabled, be sure to take inventory from the operator panel.

1-30 C144-E072-01EN

1.2 Functional Overview

1.2.4 Manual load function

This is a function for loading cartridges directly to the drive from CAS or to unload them directly from the drive to CAS without using backup software.

To load a cartridge to the drive or to unload it from the drive manually, perform the

Load/Unload operation on the operator panel.

Remarks:

1. For information on the method of inserting a magazine into CAS, see

3.1.2, "Inserting/Ejecting cartridges from CAS."

2. For information on the method of performing the Load/Unload

operation from the operator panel, see 4.7, "Loading/Unloading a

Cartridge."

This library has both an automatic and a manual cleaning function for cleaning drives.

Both functions use the cleaning cartridge stored in the cleaning cell.

Neither the auto-cleaning function nor the manual cleaning function can be used if there is no cleaning cartridge in the cleaning cell. If there is no cleaning cartridge in the cell, insert a cleaning cartridge from the CAS. This operation can be performed from the

operator panel. For information on inserting a cleaning cartridge, see 4.9.1, "Inserting a cleaning cartridge."

Operation of the auto-cleaning function and manual cleaning function are described in the following sections.

If the library detects that the drive requires cleaning, the drive is automatically cleaned by using the cleaning cartridge in the cleaning cell.

Remarks:

1. It is necessary to "enable" the auto-cleaning function on the operator panel or remote panel.

2. If the auto-cleaning function is "disabled", auto-cleaning is not performed even if the drive requires cleaning.

In that case, perform drive cleaning using the manual cleaning function or the cleaning function of the backup software.

C144-E072-01EN 1-31

Overview

Important:

Generally, the auto-cleaning function of the backup software is controlled by the processing time of the library. Therefore, cleaning more often than necessary may be done, causing the cleaning cartridge to reach the end of its service life earlier than normal.

Furthermore, the auto-cleaning function of the backup software uses ordinary cells, reducing the cells available for data cartridges. Fujitsu therefore recommends using the auto-cleaning function under control of the library (the factory default is "enabled").

1.2.5.2 Manual cleaning function

The drive is cleaned directly by operations on the operator panel.

For information on the method of performing the manual cleaning from the operator panel, see

4.8, "Cleaning the Drive Manually."

1-32 C144-E072-01EN

1.2 Functional Overview

This library takes into account settings and operations for recovery corresponding to errors of the drive, library, and server.

1.2.6.1 Recovery method when a drive error occurs

If an error occurs in the drive during initialization or when a cartridge is loaded, "Error" is displayed in the "Drive Status" field on the Device Status window (home window) of the operator panel or remote panel. Recovery can be made possible by releasing the drive error by the reset operation on the operator panel and unloading the loaded cartridge into the original cell.

Important:

If the drive error cannot be released by the reset operation on the operator panel, contact the maintenance person.

1.2.6.2 Recovery method when a library error occurs

If the library detects a hardware error during initialization or when a cartridge is transported, "Error" is displayed in the "Library Status" field on the Device Status window (home window) of the operator panel or remote panel and also the Library Error icon is displayed in the icon area. Recovery can be made possible by releasing the library error by performing the reset operation on the operator panel.

Important:

If the library error cannot be released by the reset operation on the operator panel, contact the maintenance person.

1.2.6.3 Operation to be performed when the host goes down and a cartridge remaining in the drive should be unloaded

If a cartridge is loaded into the drive by backup software and the host goes down or an error occurs in the interface with the library, it becomes impossible to unload the cartridge by the backup software.

In that case, the cartridge that is loaded in the drive can be forced to be unloaded back into the original cell by using the manual eject function of the library.

The manual eject function can be performed by a manual eject operation on the operator panel.

C144-E072-01EN 1-33

Overview

Remarks:

For information on the method of operating the manual ejection from

the operator panel, see 4.12, "Unloading a Cartridge Loaded from the

Host."

CAUTION

Data loss:

Do not perform this operation when the host accesses the drive normally. Otherwise, an error may occur in the drive path.

This function can unload all cartridges already loaded in the drive when the library is turned on (*1).

*1 It is necessary to "enable" the auto-eject function on the operator panel.

Important:

During automatic unloading by the library, an inconsistency in the cartridge management information may be detected, depending on the backup software.

If that type of backup software is used, perform the inventory operation of the backup software and update the management information of cartridge after "disabling" the auto-eject setting.

1.2.7 Remote panel function

This function can monitor the library and drive information via LAN from the general browser (such as Internet Explorer and Netscape) using the remote communication function of the library. It can also be used to set the operations and functions of the library and drive and to perform the cleaning function of the drive.

The remote panel is protected by the login password so that unauthorized access to it can be prevented. General passwords and administrator passwords are available.

Login using a general password

It is allowed to monitor the states of the library, drive, and tape and to reference the setup information.

Login using an administrator password

In addition to the functions logged in with a general password, operations such as the operation settings, functional settings, and cleaning can be performed.

1-34 C144-E072-01EN

1.2 Functional Overview

Remarks:

1. To use the remote panel, it is necessary to make network settings in advance from the operator panel. For information on the methods of network settings and operating the remote panel, see

5, "Remote Panel Operation."

2. The recommended browser is Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 to

6.0 and Netscape Navigator 4.7 to 4.78.

3. The remote panel uses "Cookie" and "Java Script". Enable the settings of these functions of the browser to be used.

Important:

Use the remote panel in an environment in which sufficient network security measures are taken.

The E-mail function is available as a remote communication function of the library.

This function can send the error report E-mail containing error information is written to up to five mail addresses when a library or drive error occurs. The E-mail function can be set on the remote panel.

For information on the method of sending mail from the remote panel, see 5.5.5, " Setting the E-mail Function."

C144-E072-01EN 1-35

Overview

This library has the SNMP function linked to a system that manages hardware connected to a network.

The SNMP function uses the SNMP protocol to transmit device information obtained via

MIB and error information obtained via TRAP from the SNMP agent incorporated into the library to the management software.

This enables centralized management of hardware at one location as is the case with other network devices.

3.1 Inserting and Ejecting a Cartridge (Data Cartridge)

This section explains how to insert and eject a data cartridge.

Remarks:

For information on inserting and ejecting a cleaning cartridge, see

Section 4.9

.

To insert a cartridge into a cell inside the library, either manually insert it after opening the front door or insert it from the CAS using a backup software operation. The first method allows you to insert a large number of cartridges at one time, but opening the front door places the library offline. Therefore, if you want to insert a cartridge during operation, you can only do so from the CAS.

To eject a cartridge from the library, either manually eject it after opening the front door or eject it from the CAS using a backup software operation. As with insertion of a cartridge, the first method allows you to eject a large number of cartridges at one time, but opening the front door places the library offline. Therefore, if you want to eject a cartridge during operation, you can only do so from the CAS (Using the operator panel, you can eject only a cleaning cartridge in the cleaning cell).

C144-E072-01EN 3-1

Library Operation

3.1.1 Inserting/Ejecting a cartridge by opening the front door

The following explains how to insert and eject a cartridge by opening the front door:

CAUTION

Damage to the library:

If work is done while the front door is open, be careful not to touch the robot, cables, and printed circuits.

1) If the front door is opened, the library goes offline. Stop the operation of backup software before opening the front door.

CAUTION

Data loss:

If the front door is opened during operation, the system performs an emergency stop. Before opening the front door, stop the software backup.

2) Open the front door. At this point, make sure that a notification is displayed in the popup window in the main area of the operator panel and the Front Door Opened icon is lit in the icon area.

3) Insert a cartridge into the cell or eject it from the cell. When inserting a cartridge, insert it as far as it will go with the cartridge having the correct orientation, as shown

in Figure 3.1

. If the insertion orientation is correct, the bar code label is facing the

front (orientation in which the robot can read) and the reel surface of the cartridge is pointing downward.

The hand section can be moved by hand.

When manually inserting a cartridge into the cell, insert it such that it has the correct orientation by checking the following points:

The bar code label faces the front (orientation in which the robot can read).

The reel surface of the cartridge faces downward.

Remarks:

Although a cartridge on which no bar code label is affixed can be used for operation, it is recommended that a cartridge on which a bar code label is affixed be used so that management information of individual cartridges can be differentiated.

). If cartridges are held, push the

picker mechanism after ejecting the cartridges.

If the robot unit is moved vertically while the hand mechanism is

on the right side ( Figure 3.4

), the hand mechanism may hit the

cartridges or storage cell. Move the robot unit while the hand

mechanism is on the left side ( Figure 3.5

).

A stopper that specifies the range in which the robot can move is mounted on the robot unit. When moving the robot manually, make sure that the robot does not hit the stopper hard. Otherwise, the robot could fail.

The robot has some locations where lubricating oil is applied for

smooth operation of the mechanisms ( Figure 3.6

). When moving

the robot manually, do not touch such locations.

3.1.2 Inserting/Ejecting cartridges from CAS

The following explains how to insert a cartridge from CAS using the backup software.

3.1.2.1 Inserting cartridges from CAS

1) Open the magazine door. At this point, make sure that the CAS Opened icon is lit in the icon area of the operator panel.

2)

Put into the magazine the cartridge you want to insert (see 1.1.5.1, "Inserting cartridges into the magazine" ).

3) Close the magazine door. At this point, make sure that the CAS Opened icon is off.

4) Perform the operation for insertion into the cell using the backup software.

Remarks:

After the CAS Open icon goes out, the library automatically makes an inventory of magazines. Perform the insertion operation from the backup software after the inventory operation is completed.

3.1.2.2 Ejecting into CAS

1) If there is no magazine in CAS, first put a magazine in CAS.

2) Perform the operation for ejection into CAS from the backup software.

3) Open the magazine door. At this point, make sure that the CAS Opened icon is lit in the icon area of the operator panel.

Remarks:

For information about performing the CAS Open operation (to be

performed from the operator panel), see 4.6, "Opening the Magazine

Door."

3.2 Cleaning the Drive

3.2 Cleaning the Drive

This section explains how to clean the drive.

The auto cleaning function and manual cleaning function are available as cleaning functions. Both the auto cleaning function and manual cleaning function use the cleaning cartridge in the cleaning cell.

Remarks:

1. If no cleaning cartridge is inserted into the cleaning cell, neither the auto cleaning function nor manual cleaning function can be used. Insert a cleaning cartridge from CAS into the cleaning cell via operation from the operator panel.

For information about the operation using the operator panel, see

4.9.1, "Inserting a cleaning cartridge."

2. The maximum number of times that a cleaning cartridge can be used is determined by each drive maker.

If the maximum number of times of a cleaning cartridge can be used in the cleaning cell is reached, the Exchange Clean Tape icon goes on in the icon area of the operator panel. If this icon is on, eject the cleaning cartridge as it should not be used any more, and replace it with a new one.

The cleaning cartridge can be ejected into CAS by performing an operation from the operator panel.

For information about the operation from the operator panel, see

4.9.2, "Ejecting a cleaning cartridge."

The maximum number of times of using the cartridge when used in LT160 is 50.

The traditional magnetic tape drive largely depended on the starting section of the tape because the directory information in the starting section of the tape needs to be read each time the tape is read. The LTO Ultrium cartridge, on the other hand, contains non-contact type cartridge memory (EEPROM). This memory can record the directory information, reducing the number of times of reading the tape and the load on the starting section of the tape.

The data tape cartridge is sold separately by Fujitsu CoWorCo. Though data tape cartridges with similar forms from other companies can also be used if the "Ultrium" logo is affixed, we strongly recommend purchasing genuine parts from Fujitsu CoWorCo.

Data tape cartridges are stored under the storage environment conditions listed in Table

7.2

and can be used for more than 30 years if not damaged. However, for safety reasons,

we recommend replacing them in the following periods:

If used for one backup operation every day, replace the tape with a new one after two years.

If used for one backup operation every week, replace the tape with a new one after

10 years.

Even if the tape is used for one backup operation per period greater than one week, we recommend replacing the tape with a new one after 10 years at the latest.

If stored for a long period of time, the tape cartridge should be stood upright for storage.

Keep tape cartridges away from environments exposed to direct sunlight or large quantities of dust.

Do not put the tape cartridge near a power cable, motor, and power supply.

Otherwise, recorded data may be damaged by the magnetic radiation fields.

7.3.2 Notes on transportation

Table 7.3

lists the environment conditions for transporting the tape.

In addition, the following precautions must be taken:

Use the tapes brought from outside after letting them adjust to the operation environment conditions for as long as the external storage period (up to 24 hours) to avoid rapid environment changes.

Transport the tapes by storing them in a container so that they can be protected from flood, dirt, magnetic fields, temperature changes, vibration, and shock.

7.3.3 Notes on handling

Do not stack tape cartridges high because they may be damaged by falling (stack volumes up to six high). If a tape cartridge is mistakenly damaged by falling, perform data migration immediately after data recovery and then discard the damaged tape cartridge.

The support track is written into the LTO Ultrium 1 tape cartridge in advance and correct read/write operations are performed based on this information. Though it is possible to delete data using a special device (1200 oersted or more) for the purpose of ensuring data security, the tape whose data has been deleted cannot be reused because the support track has also been deleted.

Adhesive constituents of binder in the tape may melt and adhere to the magnetic head, corroding the MR elements in the head and causing read/write errors. This results from chemical deterioration of the tape and has nothing to do with the number of times of using the tape. Thus, this problem cannot be resolved by cleaning the tape. Because those constituents tend to melt with the increasing temperature and humidity at which the tape cartridge is stored, sufficient attention needs to be paid to the storage environment conditions. Dispose of tapes with the head to which those constituents adhere.

7.3.4 Notes on the reader pin

Before inserting into the device, make sure that the reader pin is on the tape cartridge. If the reader pin has been detached from a recorded tape, attaching the reader pin to the tape can make the tape reusable. However, only the first 30 cm from the tape tip can be restored.

When loading the tape, make sure that the reader pin is securely latched.

Because the tape cartridge is a precision-made product, do not apply unreasonable force or pull out the reader pin and tape. Do not push or rotate the reel.

7.3.5 Notes on label affixing

Affix highly adhesive labels to the tape. Labels that come off inside the device may cause device failures. Use labels supplied with the tape or genuine labels sold by Fujitsu

CoWorCo.

7-4 C144-E072-01EN

7.4 Bar Code Label Specification and Handling

7.4

Bar Code Label Specification and Handling

By affixing the bar code label to the tape, the volume can be registered by reading the bar code, thereby reducing the time required for registration. For the bar code label used for this library, use a genuine one sold by Fujitsu CoWorCo.

Bar code label: ULB1

Supply number: 0.637150

Remarks:

In this library, the bar code label used in the magnetic tape library device F6455/F6456/F6457/F6458/LT300N of Fujitsu cannot be used.

Be sure to affix the barcode label to the tape cartridge that is used for

LT160. For information about affixing the label, see Section 7.4.2,

"Notes on label affixing."

7.4.1

Specifying the label string

When purchasing the label, specify the 8-digit string of "volume area + cartridge area".

Cartridge Media and Bar Code Label Specifications

7.4.1.1 Specify the volume area

Any 6-digit string excluding "CLNOOO" and "DG(space)OOO" (OOO are arbitrary) can

be specified as the string for the volume area. Table 7.4

lists characters that can be used

for the volume area.

Table 7.4 Usable characters

Character type

Upper-case alphabetic character

Numeric character

Description

26 characters ranging from A to Z

10 characters ranging from 0 to 9

7.4.1.2 Deleting the media area

The media area is fixed at "L1."

7.4.1.3 Specifying the label for cleaning cartridge

Specify the serial number of the label for cleaning cartridge as "CLNIOOL1" (OO are arbitrary).

7.4.2 Notes on label affixing

Keep the label affixing surface clean and do not leave fingerprints and finger marks on it.

Affix the bar code label on the specified location (concavity beside the write protect

switch) of the tape cartridge correctly (See Figure 7.3

). If the label is affixed at an

incorrect location or such that is orientation is incorrect, the bar code may become unidentifiable. After affixing the bar code label, press on it firmly. Notice that the end parts of the label are easily broken.

To replace the label, peel the old label from the tape and then affix a new one.

7.5 Precautions to Follow when Using the Cartridge

7.5 Precautions to Follow when Using the Cartridge

The tape drive of LT160 is dedicated for the LTO Ultrium 1 tape cartridge. Tape cartridges such as DLT, 8 mm, DAT, and LT300 cannot be used. The tape cartridge for LT120 can be used.

The tape cartridge for recording data and the cleaning cartridge are consumable supplies. Although one volume of each cartridge is supplied with the device, be sure

to purchase them separately. For details of the specifications, see Section 7.1,

"Ultrium Cartridge Information."

The cleaning cartridge can be used a maximum of 50 times. If the maximum number is reached, replace the cleaning cartridge.

The cleaning cartridge for an LT120 cannot be used.

To use a tape cartridge that was used in another library device in this library, check the following points. If any relevant point is found, perform recovery work or replacement with a new one before using LT160.

-Label

Use a genuine Fujitsu CoWorCo label for the bar code label to be affixed to the

cartridge. For details of the specifications, see Section 7.4, "Bar Code Label

Specifications and Handling."

-Reader pin

Check for any reader pin that has been detached from the cartridge. For details, see Section

7.3.4, "Notes on the reader pin."

-Replacement period of the tape cartridge

The tape cartridge is consumed due to mechanical abrasion and chemical deterioration of magnetic material. If storage under the environment conditions recommended by Fujitsu is assumed, the service life of the tape cartridge is about 30 years. However, if circumstances such as the environment for use, number of times of use, and storage environment are considered for actual operation, we recommend replacing the tape cartridge with a new one, following

as guideline the replacement period described in Section 7.2, "Replacement

Period."
