Problem conclusion

  • This problem was fixed.
    Affected platforms for reported release:  AIX,HP-UX, Linux,
    Solaris, and Windows.
    Platforms fixed:  AIX, Linux, and Windows.
    
    ANR8931I   Drive ABC in library XYZ is currently in use. The
    CLEAN DRIVE process is unable to run immediately.
    Explanation
    A background process operation to clean the drive is unable to
    run because the drive is in use. However, the drive cleaning
    flag is set, and the CLEAN DRIVE process will run when the next
    mount request is issued for the drive.
    SystemAction
    The background CLEAN DRIVE process operation does not run. The
    drive cleaning flag is set and the CLEAN DRIVE operation will
    run when the next mount request is issued for the drive.
    During the CLEAN DRIVE process operation, the server loads the
    cleaning cartridge into the drive and runs the cleaning
    operation first. Once the cleaning operation is done, the
    cleaning cartridge is moved back to its home slot in the
    library. The server then processes the tape mount request.
    If the CLEAN DRIVE command is issued to a tape drive that is
    offline, the CLEAN DRIVE process will not run. If the CLEAN
    DRIVE command is issued to a tape drive where the tape drive
    path is offline, the server will set the drive cleaning flag and
    the cleaning operation will run when the drive path is online
    again.
    UserResponse
    Verify that the target drive and associated drive path are
    online and that the cleaning cartridge is loaded into the
    library drive.
