Element Definition
Serial Number Informational shows the serial number of the tape library
SCSI Type Informational shows the type of SCSI interlace (DIFF for

Re-initialize? Reinitializes the library and all axes.
Reset Statistics? Resets the operational retry' statistics to zero. The 'retry'
statistics are listed in the internal inventory/statistics table.
Reset Datums? Resets the datums to default settings (datums are the

The following procedure describes how to use the operator panel to re-initialize the tape library, reset the internal statistics to zero, reset the datums to the default settings, or update the library firmware with a code update cartridge.

Note: Make sure the front door key lock is in the 12 o'clock position, and change the Digital Linear Tape Library to the diagnostic off-line mode.
