Question about Dell PowerVault 120T DLT7000 DLT Tape Drive
We just upgraded our tape drives from AIT3 to AIT5. I noticed that we are still using SDX1-CL cleaning tapes in the jukebox and I saw listed on the container description only AIT1, 2, and 3. Is it permissible to use this cleaning tape with AIT5 drives?
The AIT-5 drive has its own cleaning tape (path cleaner).
Using an older path cleaner (sdx1-cl. sdx3x-cl, or sdx4-cl) will not work and could damage your drive. The correct path cleaner is SDX5-CL.
