again tape drives problem ,control=TLD , ready = NO

I have a NetBackup 7.7.1 master server with a tape library that has 4 tape drives. From the NetBackup Console I see 2 tape drives are active and 2 are ready and have a tape in, the other two drives are NO ready and Control=TLD

 

MDS allocations in EMM:

MdsAllocation: allocationKey=554250 jobType=1 mediaKey=4000035 mediaId=000075 driveKey=2000024 driveName=HP.ULTRIUM5-SCSI.000 drivePath=/dev/nst0 stuName=quantum masterServerName=netbackup mediaServerName=netbackup ndmpTapeServerName= diskVolumeKey=0 mountKey=0 linkKey=0 fatPipeKey=0 scsiResType=1 serverStateFlags=1
MdsAllocation: allocationKey=554257 jobType=1 mediaKey=4000127 mediaId=000040 driveKey=2000103 driveName=HP.ULTRIUM5-SCSI.003 drivePath=/dev/nst2 stuName=quantum masterServerName=netbackup mediaServerName=netbackup ndmpTapeServerName= diskVolumeKey=0 mountKey=0 linkKey=0 fatPipeKey=0 scsiResType=1 serverStateFlags=1

Re: again tape drives problem ,control=TLD , ready = NO

It's not a drive problem. "Media in use" means, NetBackup wants to use specific media but it is currently being used by another backup. This indicatest that you need more media to be made available in the pool that the backup uses.

Re: again tape drives problem ,control=TLD , ready = NO

how do I do it, i have free drives.
jobs in queue are waiting.

Re: again tape drives problem ,control=TLD , ready = NO

It seems that you have only 2 pieces of media available. 

Those 2 are loaded in the drives that are currently being used.

You need more media in the pool that can be used.
Run 'available_media' from cmd (in netbackup\bin\goodies) to see what media is available.

Re: again tape drives problem ,control=TLD , ready = NO

@prot1 

Just for the record - there is nothing with drive status in "control=TLD , ready = NO".

control=TLD means the drive is UP and under TLD control.

, ready = NO means that no tape is loaded.

Re: again tape drives problem ,control=TLD , ready = NO

@prot1 

available_media is for you to look at - check which pool, storage unit and retention level is needed for the queued jobs. 

Then check the tapes in the pool in your output.
Do you see tapes that are AVAILABLE? 
Or ACTIVE with matching retention level (so that it can be appended to)?
Are the AVAILABLE or ACTIVE tapes in the robot (TLD) ? 

You seem to have an excessive amount of tapes that are FROZEN. 
You will need to troubleshoot that as a separate exercise (lots of discussions in this forum).

Re: again tape drives problem ,control=TLD , ready = NO

add some more media in specific pool which is selected in policy and also please check the maximum concurrent drives for that specific storage unit.
