Quantum Superloader 3 w/ LTO7 HH and BackupExec 20.6

Just installed a Quantum Superloader 3 with an LTO7 HH drive connected to a Windows 2016 server via SAS.  I am running fully patched BUEX 20.6.  BUEX has been installed and running jobs to networked storage for a few years.

I am able to see the library and drive in BUEX.  I can inventory and scan the slots of the unit.  There is currently 2 blank and 1 cleaning tapes loaded in the unit (slots 3 4 and 2). 

When I run a job I am getting a message to "Please instert overwritable media into the robotic library using the import command". 

Any help would be appriciated.

  • Remove the cleaning tape.

    Make sure the tapes are in the Scratch Media Set

    To understand how to manage your tapes, please read the Tape Management chapter of the BE Admin. Guide,
