Question

Why does the discovery of VTL fail when I try to add a new library with the drives mounted in nonconsecutive order?

Answer

The numbers of the drives must be edited manually according to their real order; namely, if the third drive with iqn.1997-05.com.amazon:sgw-d406e2bd-tapedrive-03 is mounted as the first (in GUI as 0), you have to specify 3 as the drive number for this drive.
