No support for LTO6 tape drives yet – HP revises firmware for tape libraries and autoloaders

No support for LTO6 tape drives yet – HP revises firmware for tape libraries and autoloaders

In December HP released firmware upgrades to all its major tape libraries and autoloaders to support the new LTO 6 generation drives. Today I received a brand new HP StoreEver MSL LTO-6 Ultrium 6250 SAS-Drive and before upgrading the library I wanted to install the latest firmware that supports this drive. All I could find was version 5.70 for MSL 2024 which obviously is the latest version available. But this one does not support LTO 6 drives. I then found an article about version 5.80 being revised and therefore not available for download: CUSTOMER NOTICE: (Revised) HP MSL Tape Libraries...

Error 18054 and Error 777971002 in SQL log after moving System Center Operations Manager 2007 Database

I just needed to move the System Center Operations Manager 2007 Database from one SQL server to another. I followed Kevin Holman’s instructions step by step and ran into the same problem he was noticing after the move. The error I got was: Error 777971002, severity 16, state 1 was raised, but no message with that error number was found in sys.messages. If error is larger than 50000, make sure the user-defined message is added using sp_addmessage. So I followed the steps he took which did not solve my problem. I still got these errors in the log. But there is another way to fix this...
