Re: Tape Library 20/700 Network Config and Web acess

Usually Enterprise libraries are maintained by HP Customer Engineers. Is your product under warranty, or under a support contract?

The tools to update firmware on an L180/L700 library are:

Flash 97: A serial port tool that is usually run on a CE laptop computer.

HP Library & Tape Tools: A Windows based diagnostic tool that runs across SCSI or FC.

Support Tools Manager: A HP-UX based tool that runs across SCSI or FC.

The last two tools are available for both CEs and End-users. As I mentioned, there is a problem with STM currently.

If you cannot get your firmware updated under support, you could connect the library to a MS Windows system, and run HP L&TT yourself to update the firmware. The tool can be downloaded from http://www.hp.com/support/tapetools

Alternately, we may be able to provide you with an unofficial patch that allows you to run STM on your HP-UX system to update the library firmware.

Also, which type of drives are you using? I would assume DLT7000 or DLT8000. We should check the revision of your drive firmware, and see if they should be updated as well.
The journey IS the reward.
