Hi there,


I am having some difficulties with the server when I am required to change
tapes.  sometimes it takes a Little while to change the tape - over 3 days
but by the time the tape new tape requested is inserted in the dirve - it
is immediately ejected and the next tape in sequence is requested.  any
clues why thisn is going on?  I dont know what to do to correct it.

I have a series of 3 tapes used with an onstream ADR50 external SCSI
drive.

cheers,

Noah
