About Oracle StorageTek ACSLS robots
If you use the access control feature of Oracle StorageTek ACSLS controlled robots and the NetBackup media sharing feature, do the following: ensure that all servers in the NetBackup media server share group have the same ACSLS permissions to all the same ACSLS media and ACSLS drives. Any mismatches can cause failed jobs and stranded tapes in drives.
Unlike other robot types, NetBackup does not track slot locations for the media in ACS robots. The Automated Cartridge System Library Software tracks slot locations and reports them to NetBackup.
The term automated cartridge system (ACS) can refer to any of the following:
A type of NetBackup robotic control.
The Oracle StorageTek system for robotic control.
The highest-level component of the Oracle StorageTek ACSLS. It refers to one robotic library or to multiple libraries that are connected with a media pass-through mechanism.
