1. AIX mksysb and savevg Backup on IBM 3590 Tape Drive and Medium Changer

Dear Everyone,

I need some help from you guys and gals urgently.

At the current moment, I have an IBM 3590 (10 Tape catridge) Tape Drive and
Medium Changer using by an IBM RS/6000 that running AIX.

What I plan to do is to backup my systems (rootvg) using mksysb on the first
tape of the
tape changer and backup my volume group (datavg) on the second tape of the
tape
changer using savevg command.

I have tried the tapeutil command to unload the tape and it seems doesn't
work
on my IBM 3590 tape changer. I always have the following messages when I try
to
load and unload the tape, please advice:-

Moving medium: source 32, destination 33...
Operation failed with errno 46: Device not ready

Can any guru out there assist me on this ?

Thanks in advanced.
