Tape drives report as empty after mtx load succeeds
Now that systemd things are working on both RH and Debian system types, I started testing things with BRU PE and BRU Server.
Somewhere in the last few changes, the vtltape drives are not reporting as loaded after a successful mtx load:
$ mtx -f /dev/sg8 status
Storage Changer /dev/sg8:4 Drives, 43 Slots ( 4 Import/Export )
Data Transfer Element 0:Full (Storage Element 3 Loaded):VolumeTag = E01003L4
Data Transfer Element 1:Empty
Data Transfer Element 2:Empty
Data Transfer Element 3:Empty
Storage Element 1:Full :VolumeTag=E01001L4
Storage Element 2:Full :VolumeTag=E01002L4
Storage Element 3:Empty
Storage Element 4:Full :VolumeTag=E01004L4
Storage Element 5:Full :VolumeTag=E01005L4
However, /dev/nst0 reports as empty (DR_OPEN):
$ mt -f /dev/nst0 status
SCSI 2 tape drive:
File number=-1, block number=-1, partition=0.
Tape block size 0 bytes. Density code 0x0 (default).
Soft error count since last status=0
General status bits on (50000):
This was working back around the 3rd or 4th of April.
