    Tape Drive in Maintenance Mode


    When Nodeum detects an issue with a Tape Drive, Nodeum puts the drive in Maintenance Mode to allow the other tasks to run on the alternative drives.


    Drives can be set in Maintenance Mode for example:

    • When too many errors are detected to mount a tape in this drive
    • If a Tape unrecognized by Nodeum is mounted in the drive


    To restore the functionnality of the drive with Nodeum, you need :

    • to correct the issue detected on the drive
    • stop and restart Nodeum services.
