Error message: open sd: no such device or address (POSIX ENXIO {no such device or address})

When getting the message

   open sd: no such device or address (POSIX ENXIO {no such device or address})

on attempting to access the tape drive or media changer, this means that the host has lost the connection to the external device.

Try rebooting the host to reconnect the SCSI device (logical SCSI where Fibre channel connections are used), or start a SCSI BUS rescan in case the OS supports it.
