Tape imports may fail with input/output errors

SUMMARY

Tape imports may fail with input/output errors.

ISSUE

Tape imports may fail with input/output errors. 

RESOLUTION

A "rewind_wait_time" master.ini variable was added in release 10.2. This allows the tape drive enough time to position itself and indicate a ready state before the import job attempts to read it. 

CAUSE

The import job may prematurely attempt to read a tape device that is still positioning itself, resulting in input/output errors and job failure.
