Addressing Tapes in Tape Library?

» close window

The Question is:

I manage several clusters which have either TF86 or TZ87 tape drives with
 7-slot tape canisters.  Is there a way to remotely mount a tape from a
 previous, or selected, slot?  For example, tapes sequentially load from slot-0
 to slot-6; so if the tape from
slot-3 is loaded and I do a dismount then the tape in slot-4 will be
 automatically mounted.  How can I get the tape from slot-2 or slot-0 to mount?

The Answer is :

  This requires access to loader software, and a loader command interface.
  Please contact the Customer Support Center, as details on the tape
  library and the configuration, and on the loader software in use (if
  any) will be required.
