    Multiple control paths reduce the possibility of a failure in one control path to cause the entire library to become unavailable. Also, when you configure more control paths, more library-sharing configurations and options are possible. Access to the library is on a first-come, first-served basis. Each control path for a logical library can accept commands while the library is in use by another control path.

  • Page 91: Methods Of Cleaning Drives

    The head of every tape drive in the tape library must be kept clean to prevent errors that are caused by contamination. To help you keep the drives clean, Dell provides a cleaning cartridge with the library. The library uses the cleaning cartridge to clean the drive with whatever cleaning method that you choose. In all methods, cleaning is done after the data cartridge is unloaded from the drive and before the next load.

  • Page 92: Accessing Cartridges

    Note: Dell recommends enabling the Auto Clean function on the library. With the Auto Clean function enabled, drive cleaning occurs automatically. The only time Auto Cleaning must be disabled is when your backup application requires that it has control. Manual cleaning Manual cleaning requires that you select a menu option from the Management GUI to clean one or more of the tape drives.
