Operator

The operator control panel consists of the following elements:

control panel

• Graphical user

The GUI displays library status information and allows

 

 

interface (GUI)

you to access the library menus. These menus allow you to

 

 

view or change the library settings, run demonstration

 

 

programs, or run diagnostic tests.

 

 

The GUI is discussed in detail in this book.

 

• Five GUI

Use these buttons in combination with the GUI to scroll

 

buttons

through screens and select options or commands. The

 

 

functionality of these buttons changes depending on the

 

 

currently displayed GUI screen.

 

• Magazine

Pressing these buttons opens the magazine doors, if the

 

door buttons

magazines have already been released using the Mags

 

 

option on the GUI (see Removing the Magazines on

 

 

page 38).

 

• Light emitting

The operator control panel has two LED indicators:

operational and ready to accept host commands. It

 

 

 

 

flashes while the library is transitioning from a READY

 

 

state to a NOT READY state. The library will not be

 

 

READY during power-onself-tests,when magazines

 

 

are being released, or during access to certain menu

 

 

items.

 

 

• The red LED lights when there is a library error.

 

 

• Both LEDs flash when there is a library fault that

 

 

requires operator attention.

Chapter 1 Overview

Library Features

Each cartridge magazine holds 10 DLT/SDLT cartridges or 12 LTO cartridges. The bins in the left magazines are numbered from 1 through 10 (or 12 in LTO libraries) from front to back. The bins in the right magazines are numbered from 1 through 10 (or 12 in LTO libraries) from back to front.

The L25 has one fixed cartridge slot behind the left magazine. The L100 has four fixed cartridge slots, one behind each left magazine. The fixed cartridge slots can be used as additional data cartridge bins, or can be used to hold cleaning tapes, which can be moved to a tape drive when cleaning is required.

A bar code reader is attached to the library’s robotic hand. This bar code reader automatically identifies the cartridges in the library, if the cartridges are fitted with acceptable bar code labels.

Basic Operations

This chapter introduces the library GUI screens and explains how to use them to perform the following basic library operations:

Viewing library information (see Using the Quick View Menu Screen on page 19)

Moving tape cartridges within the library (see Moving Tape Cartridges on page 26)

Using the mailbox (see Using the Mailbox on page 30

Removing the tape cartridge magazines (see Removing the Magazines on page 38)

View library, drive and SCSI statistics (see Viewing Statistics on page 45)

Viewing the configuration of the entire library and stack, if the library is part of a multiple library stack (see Viewing the Stack Configuration on page 50)

Chapter 2 Basic Operations

Introduction

Introduction

Before using the GUI to perform library functions, familiarize yourself with the:

 

Main screen

 

GUI buttons

 

GUI icons

 

The first screen the GUI displays after library initialization is the

Main Screen

 

main screen. This screen displays library status and provides

 

inventory information for the cartridge magazines, the fixed

 

slot(s), the drives, and the robotic hand. It also provides access to

 

the library menus. It updates in real time as cartridges move

 

within the library.

 

The main screen appears somewhat different depending on

 

whether the library is an:

 

• L25 stand-alonelibrary

 

• L25 library in a multiple library stack

 

L100 library

If the library is a stand-aloneL25, the main screen appears as shown infigure 7.

Introduction

Figure 7 Sample Main

Screen, Stand-alone

L25

If the library is an L25 and is part of a multiple library stack, the main screen displays the level of the L25 module and provides an additional button, the Stack button (seefigure 8).

Note: In a multiple library stack, each L25 library module is considered one “level” of the library. Each L100 library module is considered four levels of the library (seefigure 9). Levels are numbered from top to bottom, starting with 1.
