This case happened 2 weeks ago. I got information from L2 that the tape cannot do backup prosses because one of the drive (0,4,1,9) was failed. So, we need to do troubleshoot and replace it. 

And this is the step how to replace it. 

1. You need enter the ACSLS server, this is the server to do troubleshoot the library by console. 
    #vary drive 0,4,1,9 off --> to make the drive offline. 
2. Then, you need to replace the drive. Make sure that you have pull out the FC connection to host first, then pull out the drive from BAY.

If you wanna replace the drive, you need see inside of the screw, there is LTO or else. Cek this picture :

4. After all, you need to replace the drive. Connected all cable, bazzle and also the important thing is if you loosen the screw in LTO type, you to connected that screw on the same type. 
5. After that, plug the tape drive on the library again. on the same location.
