Jabba Tape Library HW Problems
- 2018-08-17 07:00
Update: All tape library issues have been solved. All backup and archive services are back online
- 2018-08-15 12:00
Update: There are still issues with the tape library. It will be down for at least another day.
- 2018-08-13 11:30
Update: The failed tape drive has been replaced. The management PC is still not working. Due to the very old hardware the supply with spare parts does take longer as usual. The tape library remains offline at least until tomorrow afternoon.
- 2018-08-10 10:00
- Due to a failed tape drive and a defective management PC Jabba's Tape Library is not working. The Jabba server is not affected. We are in contact with IBM and we hope the problem will be fixed by next Monday.
What does this mean for you:
- Store new data: New data are stored to a SAM-FS cache area first, but can not be written to tape afterwards, i.e. the backup process can not be completed finally, but will started automatically as soon as the tape library works again.
- Access existing data: Only access to data still available in the SAM-FS cache area is possible. NO ACCESS to data located on tape only.
- Store new data: New data are stored to a SAM-FS cache area first. In second step data are copied to a archive disk but the second copy to a tape will fail. I.e. the archive process can be completed for one half only. The copy-to-tape will started automatically as soon as the tape library works again.
- Access existing data: there is no limitation in access to archive data
