Changing the Import/Export Setting

The Import/Export option controls whether the host recognizes the slots of the top left magazine as import/export elements or as storage elements:

Import/export elements are used to move cartridges in and out of the library under host control. Because these elements are used exclusively for importing and exporting cartridges, they are left empty during normal library operation, reducing the storage capacity of the library.

Storage elements are used to store data cartridges. Using storage elements to import and export cartridges can be risky since these operations are not controlled by the host.

Table 5 describes each of the possible settings for the Import/Exportoption.

Changing the Auto-ImportOption

Changing the Auto-ImportOption

The Auto-Import option controls how cartridges are moved from the import/export slots of the mailbox to the magazine slots:

The move is performed automatically (without need for host commands) at both power-upand whenever the import/export magazine is inserted.

Disabling this option removes the above capability; the host software must issue SCSI commands to move cartridges from the import/export slots to the required magazine slots.

To change the Auto-Import setting:

1Access the Configuration screen (seeAccessing the Configuration Screen on page 53).

2 Press theUp orDown buttons untilAuto-Import is highlighted.
