I'm looking for information regarding a feature within the Remote Manager
web application. Under the Manage Hardware, Disk/Lan Adapter I'm looking
at the Adaptec SCSI Card, and once I drill down to the device, a
Benchmark DLT tape drive, I see a red line through the device icon and
under the Action column it is displaying a link entitled Activate.

What is this feature trying to tell me? The device does work, but
sometimes with errors. Like when we had to recently restore two entire
volumes. What exactly will the Activate link do? Is it distructive? Will
I loose the device? You and I both know things are not always as they
appear on this side of the link. Harmless link have blown-up in my face

Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks
