Hi dear all, after robot failure and reset library some tape drives no longer load tapes, drives are assigned to some media server but no tape loaded, and reset drive getting error "drive is currently assigned" 

I tried:

Reset drive from library console, nbrbutil -resetMediaServer, nbrbutil -releaseDrive, delete media server lock files,

Thanks

Hi

Use nbrbutil -dump

At the end of the output you'll see MDS allocations. One of these allocations would be for the drive you're looking for.

Then use nbrbutil -releaseMDS <msd key>

Hope that works.
