Fibre Channel Device found, but no drive detected

After replacing a standalone tape device with a jukebox that is connected vie Fibre Channel, PresSTORE's jukebox wizard may claim that the jukebox is found while the tape drive in the jukebox is not visible.

The reason for that effect is found in the operating systems assignment of so called device nodes:
When the standalone tape device is off, the operating system may reuse the according device node for the tape device in the jukebox. On the other hand, the device node may still be referred to as the former standalone device in PresSTORE.
Because of that PresSTORE does not offer the device in the jukebox wizard.

To overcome this, please delete the standalone tape drive in PresSTORE's "Standalone Tape Drives" section and restart the Jukebox wizard.
