Tandberg Data Magnum 448 LTO-4 Tape Drive Library - $150 (Audubon)

condition: salvage
make / manufacturer: Tandberg Data
model name / number: Magnum 448

This listing is for a partially functional Tandberg Data Magnum 448 Tape Library plus related fiber optic card and cables.

There are two LTO4 tape drives, only one of which has a green light. We assume the other (bottom unit) is dead.

Library firmware updated successfully to V1d184.
System Reset: Good
Library Diags: Digital Self Test: OK
Drive Self Test: Good (presumably only one unit)
Library Status: Fans and temperature are okay.
Park for Shipping: Good. (the CSM tape transport moved down and to the front of the unit.)
Motions Test: Failed: Hardware Error, Bad Drive Config
We are unable to move tapes into or out of the library and are unable to load tapes into either drive.
I theorize that the failed second tape drive is keeping the unit from functioning, especially since the CSM transport seemed to work perfectly for "Park for Shipping."

This library had been working fine from Backup Exec 11d running in Windows Server 2003 with an Emulex Light Pulse HBA (x2)
Backup Exec sees an IBM Ultrium TD4Tape Drive with Symantec driver.
Ran various tools from Tandberg Data with mixed results. Clearly, there is some communication with the library.

We may be willing to sell parts from it.
We also may have a dozen or more LTO-4 tapes.
Listening to reasonable offers.
