Question about Sony (LIB81A3BB) AIT-3 Tape Drive
Been having a number of problems with our Sony LIB-81 and Arcserve 11. Numerous errors on Arcserve Job Display Status: E6084 Drive hardware error - Servo or Sensor error [ABSL:3050 CMD:1Bh] E8005 Marking Slot Off-line after media failure. Slot [SN:] in Library[SN:02585008] Several NT SCSI Port Errors. Have checked SCSI cables and IDs and nothing untoward there. Just don't know if it's the drive that's faulty.
What is the meaning of the message from sony lib 81 lcd
" warning drive information 90.80"?

I think this sounds like the drive is having a issue loading and moving the tape in slot 1.
AIT units are known for having this kind of problem.
Try a cleaning tape and then a new tape fresh out the wrapper for a test backup.
if it fails with a known good tape then its time to send it out for repair
