    hi all!

    i was just about do recover some data from the backup. i received an email from the backup-server, that i was to "manually move the cartridge 9 from location..." to the drive. this tape is in the second set of cardridges. so i changed it and told the system "changerready". but after that i realized, that i put in the wrong tape... meanwhile the system had already sent me a new mail saying:
    "The device /dev/sg1 is not ready for use. You are requested to check the changer for possible errors and to correct them."

    so i did. i put in the right tape... but now i can't restart the process with "changerready". after some time the process starts automaticaly but that takes too long.

    is there a way to tell the system to restart the recovery after the "You are requested to check the changer for possible errors and to correct them."-message without having to wait?

    thank you.
