Notice Stp:SCSI tape 0 device 46/0 offline

My computer which uses scoUNIX, has an internal scsi tape backup. It will
no longer backup . It posts this message Notice :Stp tape 0 device 46/0
offline. This has been discussed before by the forum and I'd appreciate any
help that any expert could provide for me for a step wise approach to troubleshoot this problem. I've rebooted the computer,checked the connections as best I could and the problem. persists. Am I missing a possible essential connection to check or is my tapedrive shot. Thanks in advance for your indulgence for an techno neophyte. Hardware support for my system is difficult to find as the company that sold it was bought and left the area and the local computer people don't seem to know about
my system.

This parameter is mandatory and will report an error if device_file is omitted.

This option causes a bus device reset to be issued to the device specified by the option. Prints out the current status of the shared tape/library device specified by the option. RETURN VALUE
returns 0 upon successful completion and 1 otherwise. EXAMPLES

The above output indicates that the shared device is not ready for use at this time. The above output indicates that the shared device is ready for use at this time. To reclaim a shared tape/library device from a failed host, the following command can be used: WARNINGS
The option must be used with care. When reclaiming devices, it must be ensured that the host from which the device is being reclaimed has in fact failed, as data may be lost as the result of reclaiming a device that is currently in use by another host. AUTHOR
