Configuring automatic cleaning (Configuration > Configure Auto Cleaning)
When auto clean is enabled, the device automatically loads a cleaning cartridge when a tape drive
needs to be cleaned. The device identifies a tape cartridge as a cleaning cartridge if it has a barcode
label that starts with CLN or after an unlabeled cleaning tape has been loaded into the tape drive.
The device can use a cleaning cartridge from any slot, even if the slot is reserved. The device keeps
track of the usage count for each of the cleaning cartridges. When multiple cleaning cartridges are
available, the device will first choose an unknown cleaning cartridge so the device can start tracking
the cartridge usage count. If the deviceknows the usage count for all of the cleaning cartridges, the
device will choose the one with the highest usage count.
Auto cleaning is disabled by default. You can enable automatic cleaning even if there are no cleaning
cartridges in the device. In this case, the device will display a warning message.
Only enable automatic cleaning in either the backup application or the device, not both.
To configure automatic cleaning:
From the Home screen, press Previous or Next until the screen displays Configuration. Press Enter
Press Previous or Next until the screen displays Configure Auto Cleaning. Press Enter to select.
The screen displays Auto Cleaning Disabled or Auto Cleaning Enabled depending on the current
setting. To change the auto cleaning configuration, press Enter.
Press Previous or Next until the screen displays the configuration you want. Press Enter.
