tapemc.alias.addFail

Severity

ERROR

Description

This message occurs when the automatic addition of a tape or medium changer alias fails. Data ONTAP® might attempt to add aliases automatically at boot or when devices are added, if it determines that the devices have no existing aliases.

Corrective Action

Check the tape and medium changer aliases to ensure that they specify the desired devices. You can view, add, or delete aliases using the "storage alias/unalias" (7-Mode or Cluster-Mode nodeshell) commands.

Syslog Message

Unable to retrieve and add alias for %s device %s.

Parameters

deviceType (STRING): Type of device for which an alias addition failed.
deviceAddr (STRING): Address of the device for which an alias addition failed.

tapemc.alias.max

Severity

ERROR

Description

tapemc.alias.threshold

Severity

ERROR

Description

This message occurs when Data ONTAP® automatically adds a tape or media changer alias, and the new number of aliases exceeds an internal threshold. The alias is added, but additional aliases might not be added until other aliases are deleted. Automatic alias addition can occur when new devices are discovered, or when device connections are changed.

Corrective Action

Delete any unused aliases with 'storage tape alias clear'.

count (INT): Current count of tape and media changer aliases.
