Tape Drives

Cannot eject Dat tape from drive by Mellors
Posted: 21 Oct 02

To eject the tape you must shutdown and power off the server. Then power the server backup while holding the eject button down.

If you have a regular occourance of this problem then Dell will eventualy replace the drive.
 (but you will have to wait 4 hours on the phone, reboot your live production server and run dell diag before they belive the problem is what you knew it was! )
