    What about the tape that is in the drive, can you do an lsvol so we can see the details of it? Maybe the tape is not in the correct media family or something.

    Thanks

    Hi Rich

    Thanks for your reply.

    since i am using a stand alone Tape drive, we will not able to take the inventory , isn't it ?

    i hope that my media family parameters are correct only .please find the media family details below.

    media family name :- test-media-family
    volume id used :- unique to this media family
    volume expiration :- 3 years
    appendable :- yes
    rotation policy & volume duplication policy are ;- none

    ====================================

    While i am mounting the Tape to the drive is gives the following error

    ob> mountdev -w test-tape
    Error: can't mount volume in test-tape - timed out waiting for bot
