The Raid Controllers from Dell are not suitable to use Tape Libraries with the default firmware it is shipped with. In...

    [SOLVED] Tape Label TASK ERROR: media read error - read failed - do_scsi_pt failed with err EINVAL: Invalid argument

    are there security best practices?

    Some Ideas of Security measurements (mostly going further than what you asked for) The whole Infrastructure is behind OPNSense HA gateways, they run VPN and guest proxy/ reverse proxy.

    [SOLVED] Tape Label TASK ERROR: media read error - read failed - do_scsi_pt failed with err EINVAL: Invalid argument

    I am able to execute other things just fine with the drive. For Example: pmt cartridge-memory cleanly reads the tapes memory #pmt erase --drive neos-drive --fast=false erases the tape as expected. I checked this by checking the state of the tape library web interface. Drive Status says...

    I managed to install the hp_ltt software with some tweaks to their proprietary rpm RHEL/Linux package. The tool says that the firmware description cant be read, but also reports that there are no errors with the drive whatsoever. Because library and drive where used before by another company, i...
