Hi. . . I have this tape drive attached to an EKM server for encryption is showing this error everytime I do a DUPTAP Message . . . . : Condition of source/sink object TAP05 not valid. Cause . . . . . : The condition of the source/sink object is not valid. The affected operation value is X'4001' and the primary object is TAP05. The condition is not valid for one of the following reasons: -- Source/sink object associated with a create, destroy, modify, or request input/output (I/O) instruction is not in the correct condition to run this operation. -- An independent ASP number was specified for the instruction and the independent ASP is not varied on. -- A pointer to an independent ASP LUD was specified for the instruction and the independent ASP is not varied on" The tape drive in fact is attached to two EKM servers where the other act as a failover incase a timeout occurs while connecting to the first one. Hence, I was wondering where this IO error is coming from.
