SDLT 320

Hi All,


I have SDLT 320 and I had to make it work as it wasn't being used previously. Operating System is Windows 2008 Server STD. I am doing HP LTT install check and it gave me following log (attached). It also asked me to put a test cartridge at Location 2/0.6.0 (and I don't know what does it mean). Is test cartridge same as normal cartridge or different.


Many THanks

Re: SDLT 320

The tool wants to have a cartridge to do some write tests - this is a normal media. Try to do an assessment test and pull a support ticket after the test. Caution - most smartarray controllers doesn't support any tape drives. What HBA do you have?

Hope this helps!
