Question about IBM Computers & Internet
When a make backup using tape LTO06 TS32000 IBM Library, i have that errors: He: Drive Broken needs repairs F3 01. What is happened with tape?
Tapes do brake, at the end of the day they are mechanical devices.
Just throw it away and buy another one.
But it can be reformatted or checked using IBM utilities from the atape drivers in case you still want it (ITDT or tapeutil)

SOURCE: Tape eject from drive
Hi. This is from Dells site regarding automatic ejection of tape once inserted:
The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive reads and writes DLTtape VS1 cartridges. The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive can read - but not write - DLTtape™ IV cartridges written using the DLT1/VS80 format. NOTE: The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive automatically ejects any other cartridge types and any cartridges whose format it cannot read. Make sure all cartridges that you want to use for writing are DLTtape VS1 cartridges.
Perhaps your cartridge is improperly formatted or is of the incorrect type?

SOURCE: medium changer did not show
Check that the unit is set to random mode instead of sequential mode
(FYI Sequential mode treats the whole machine as a single big tape, while random lets the software say what tape is going to be used.)

SOURCE: Tape stuck in drive
The best way that I have solved this is by using the move commands from the drive, and move it from drive to any free tape slot. Also if that does not work, put a few tapes in the drive and perform the random moves test in diagnostics, that will fool the drive to move the tape.

Tips for a great answer:
Try the following action to resovle your issue:
1. Run the Drive Assessment Test in HP StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools.
CAUTION: Running the Drive Assessment Test overwrites the tape. If it is not possible to
overwrite the tape, run the logs-based Device Analysis Test instead.
2. Check the backup logs.
3. Verify that a supported configuration is being used.
4. Check for media damage:
o Incorrect label placement
o Broken, missing, or loose leader pin
o Damaged cartridge seam
o Usage in incorrect environment
5. Check for software issues:
a. Check the backup software.
b. Check that virus scanning software is not scheduled to run at the same time as the back-up.
6. Verify that a tape can be formatted.
Tape Error LED is flashing:
1. Reload the suspect tape. If the Tape Error LED stops flashing, the problem has cleared.
2. Load a new or known good tape. If the Tape Error LED stops flashing, the problem has cleared.
3. Reload the suspect tape. If the Tape Error LED flashes, discard the suspect media as faulty.
From my experience, most of the time it is a bad tape, using a new tape usually solves the problem. If after inserting a new tape and the problem exist, you may need to update your firmware/backup software.
