Robtest tape in slot has drive source address

Robtest tape in slot has drive source address

Greetings helpers!

So I have another questions regarding my ongoing issues with my off-site L180 tape library.

Using robtest I was using 's s' scan slots to see what they contained.  I was noticing that some of the tapes had a source address that corresponded with a tape drive.

See below for an example:

Barcode = D00108                          
slot 89 (addr 1088) contains Cartridge = yes
Barcode = D00117                          
slot 90 (addr 1089) contains Cartridge = yes
Barcode = D00118                          
slot 91 (addr 1090) contains Cartridge = yes
Barcode = D00107                          
slot 92 (addr 1091) contains Cartridge = yes
Barcode = D00119                          
slot 93 (addr 1092) contains Cartridge = yes
Barcode = D00120                          
slot 94 (addr 1093) contains Cartridge = yes
Source address = 500
Barcode = D00121                          
slot 95 (addr 1094) contains Cartridge = yes
Barcode = D00126                          
slot 96 (addr 1095) contains Cartridge = yes
Source address = 500
Barcode = D00125                          
<< Press return to continue, or q and return to stop >>

slot 97 (addr 1096) contains Cartridge = yes
Barcode = D00124                          
slot 98 (addr 1097) contains Cartridge = yes
Barcode = D00116                          
slot 99 (addr 1098) contains Cartridge = yes
Barcode = D00123                          
slot 100 (addr 1099) contains Cartridge = no
slot 101 (addr 1100) contains Cartridge = yes
Barcode = D00115                          
slot 102 (addr 1101) contains Cartridge = yes
Source address = 503
Barcode = D00114  

You can see where the slot 102 with address 1101 has a source address of 503.  The tape drives are address 500 through 504.

Is there a way to fix this so the source address is correct.  Could this effect how the tapes are used or pulled?

Thanks for your help.
