thanks, there is only one drive so it's not going to work. I was asked to check an existing installation that is have problems and I observed the tape drive inventory's don't match and I see a no entry symbol on the one tape drive which I took to being a lock on the device. All the documentation I checked I don't see a tape library being shared so I suspected it probably isn't supported so you have confirmed my suspicion. Can you confirm the no entry symbol as representing the lock? or does it mean something else?
