HOW, exactly?

> - Could not open Tape Drive /dev/rmt/1mnb

Did you notice that this device name does not
closely resemble these?:

/dev/rmt/c11t1d0BEST /dev/rmt/c11t1d0BESTb
/dev/rmt/c11t1d0BESTn /dev/rmt/c11t1d0BESTnb

Re: HPUX 11.11 with LTT 4.9 problem

I know nothing about LTT, so I have no idea
if there's a way to tell it to use a
different device name (say, one which
exists), but, if I were desperate, I might
try creating a link from what it's trying to
use to what I'd like it to use. (Probably
the one which also has "nb" in its name.)

"man mksf" may suggest a way to get any name
you'd like, if you know what to ask for.

You don't have any xmn (e.g. 0mn, 1mn, etc...) device files at all, re-create them (using sam).

Hope this helps!

Re: HPUX 11.11 with LTT 4.9 problem

After starting LTT 4.9 in HPUX 11.11, When I go to Device Performance Tool. I select start, then it ask me that this test will overwrite any data on the media. I select "Y" for yes. About three seconds later the test is done (the test should take about an hour).
1. [X] Drive (DLT7000) - Test Completed

Now that the test is completed, I go back and select review (this is the output I get from review)

- Device Performance Test Started on Drive (DLT7000) (4.1.0[1-11/1/0/8/0/0.1.0])
- Opening Tape Drive 4.1.0[1-11/1/0/8/0/0.1.0]
- Could not open Tape Drive /dev/rmt/1mnb

Is their something that I'm not selecting right.

The tool cannot open this device because it is not there. Re-create the device files!

Hope this helps!

Re: HPUX 11.11 with LTT 4.9 problem

if U re-create the device file fail; U should cd /dev/rmt directory to check if there is /dev/rmt/1mnb already exist; U can delete these file and insf -eCtape again;
