acl452 - The ACL 4/52 Automated Tape Library
The ACL 4/52 tape library supports 48 DLT tape cartridges
and 4 DLT tape drives. The library has a 4 slot
import/export unit that may be used to import or export
media into the library. These import/export slots may also
be used as storage slots thus extending the storage capacity
to 52 slots.
The ACL 4/52 should NOT be configured with auto-clean or
auto-load when running Sun QFS and SAM-QFS software. Auto-
load may be used during initial loading of cartridges as
long as the Sun QFS and SAM-QFS software is not running.
To import media, the door on the ACL 4/52 must first be
opened. To open the door, issue the export(1M) command,
then push the OPEN button on the ACL 4/52 front panel. The
door should open and you may place media in any of the
slots. You may then close the door by pressing the CLOSE
button then manually closing the door when the ACL 4/52
display indicates that it is ready. The Sun QFS and SAM-QFS
software will not recognize the new media until the
import(1M) command is issued. Anytime you close the door,
you must issue the import function.
To export media, use the move(1M) command to move media into
the import/export unit then issue the export(1M) command.
Push the OPEN button on the ACL 4/52 front panel to open the
If the door is already open, you must close the door and
issue the import command before attempting to move media
into the import/export unit.
The slot numbers for the import/export unit are 48, 49, 50
Note: After opening or closing the door, the ACL 4/52 goes
offline until it has re-initialized. This will cause delays
since the library must become online before any commands may
