The operations that can be performed using the operator panel and control keys are listed in Figure 22.
Certain operations can only be performed from a specific (prerequisite) mode or modes; therefore, before selecting an operation, make sure the tape library is in the proper mode.
For example, a move cartridge operation can only be performed with the tape library in the diagnostic off-line mode.
To move a cartridge, select the diagnostic off-line operational mode and then select the move cartridge menu operation.
If the tape library is not in the correct operational mode, it will show a message on the operator panel prompting for a change to the correct mode.
