    Proper way to respond when OSB job is requesting assistance.

      Have OSB ver on Linux.

      Can you tell me the proper way to get through this issue? Not sure if I have the proper commands & sequence I'm using.

      OSB job states there is an error "Error performing unload operation - element is reserved (library manager)".

      Subject: Oracle Secure Backup assistance needed for job oracle/2419.235

      Dear reader:

      Oracle Secure Backup job oracle/2419.235 is requesting assistance.
      The job will resume when an operator responds.

      If you'd like to view and optionally respond to this request, use --
      . the Web tool's Manage/Jobs interface and its Show Transcript function, or
      . obtool's transcript display command: obtool catxcr --tail 25 oracle/2419.235

      Thank you,
      Oracle Secure Backup

      My actions -->

      I've located a vacant slot (88) in the library I want to unload the tape from drive5 and issue 'unload 88' enter, then what?

      Do I 'catxcr --tail 25 oracle/2419.235' again and issue 'go'?

      Seems like I go through this sequence many times before job actually starts running again.

      ob> catxcr --tail 25 oracle/2419.235
