Loading a Fresh Tape
In the tapeunit.dl window (minidaq desktop),
click Rewind, then Eject. (Clicking only ``Eject'' will
not guarantee a double-end-of-file mark.)
Take the ejected Exabyte tape out of the TTi 8510 near the MiniDAQ crate;
Label the tape with the run type, date and time.
Load the pedestal/pulser tape into deneb's Exabyte drive: /dev/rmt/0n.
Disable its write-protection if necessary, and load a data-grade Exabyte
tape into the MiniDAQ TTi 8510. (Trying to write to a protected tape may
cause nasty problems, and never use a video-grade tape in a 5-GB drive.
Run Control will set the drive on- and off-line, so you need not
set this in the tapeunit.dl window.
