I am running TSM Server Version 6, Release 2, Level 3.0 on AIX 5.3 TL12 SP02 - Yes I know all are unsupported now...........

I am seeing an error when the library tries to mount a tape:

ANR8943E Hardware or media error on library TAPELIB
(OP=00006C03, CC=-1, KEY=04, ASC=15, ASCQ=01,
SENSE=70.00.04.00.00.00.00.0A.00.00.00.00.15.01..00.00.00-
.00., Description=An undetermined error has occurred).
Refer to the &STGM; documentation on I/O error code
descriptions.

I have replaced the drive, even removed drives and path and recreated same error. Anyone have any ideas how to correct or what to look for?

Thanks
Vince

Hi Vincent,

I don't see a tape drive in the message (just the library), so I would
suspect the library itself. You might find these documents useful:

https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSGSG7_7.1.1/com.ibm.itsm.msgs.server.doc/ioerrorcodes.html
https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSGSG7_7.1.1/com.ibm.itsm.msgs.server.doc/ioerrorcodes_ascdesc.html#ioerrorcodes_ascdesc

Key=04 == "hardware error"
ASC=15 ASCQ=01 == "Mechanical positioning error"

The library itself might have more information in its logs.
