Fibre attached library configured with 8 tape drives. occasionally when the NV service is stopped and restarted the tape drives would change order. Drives 1 through 4 would become 5 through 8 and vice versa.
Jobs continually fail when it tries to move tapes as the drive order was incorrect.
Need to set Persistent Binding option in the driver for the HBA.
