Error description

  • Checking in or labeling a library volume via the LABEL LIBVOL
    or CHECKIN LIBVOL commands for a Spectralogic Python library
    can fail with the following error:
    
      ANR8847E No DLT-type drives are currently available in
               library SPECTRA_LIB
    
    This error can occur even if DLT-type drives are not in use.
    
    This failure will occur if the library is configured to return
    less than 8 characters for the volume barcodes, which is
    a requirement for this library type, and became enforced in
    Tivoli Storage Manager level 6.3.2.0.
    
    Initial Impact:
    High
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    6.3.2.0 Tivoli Storage Manager servers using Spectralogic
    Python libraries on all platforms.
    
    Additional Keywords:
    ZZTSM63 MSGANR8847E SPECTRA LOGIC T950 PYTHON MOUNT LABEL
    VOLUME VOL CHECKIN CHECK IN 87084 LTO4 LTO3
    

Local fix

  • Configure the library to return at least 8 character bar codes
    and relabel any scratch volumes that have been previously
    labeled with less than 8 characters.  For existing used
    volumes that were labeled with less than 8 characters,
    check in the volumes by specifying checklabel=yes.  These
    volumes should then be emptied and relabeled per the
    requirements.
