standards, always purchase them from an approved supplier and never print bar code labels

Loading cartridges

You can use the mailslot to import and export tape cartridges. Or, to load or unload multiple tape
cartridges at a time, remove the magazines and load the cartridges into them.
1.
Use the OCP Operations > Unlock Left Magazine option to release the left magazine. If
requested, provide the administrator password to access the magazines.
2.
Insert the tape cartridges into the slots. The lower left magazine, which is designated by a
white dot in the lower right corner, has a three-slot mailslot in the front of the magazine. To
use the mailslot, leave the three slots in the front of the magazine empty.
To use the mailslot feature, leave the bottom slot in the front of the left magazine empty.
The rest of the slot numbers are adjusted as shown.
3.
Replace the magazines in the library.
4.
Repeat for the right magazines. The right magazines do not have a mailslot.
