Problem with a StorageTeck library on a redhat ES 3 server

Hello,

I'm trying to connect a PC style server to a Storagetek L20 library.
The entire chain is :
PC <-> Compaq FC switch <-> Compaq FCTC <-> StorageTek.

My server runs RedHat ES 3. I can't see the DEC TZ89 tape drive in the Storagetek library.

The 'cat /proc/scsi/scsi' command shows the FCTC, but no tape drive. The zoning of my FC switch seems to be good.

Can someone help me ?

Thanks.

Could it be (though it would seem strange) that the kernel does have multiple lun support disabled?
yesterday I stood at the edge. Today I'm one step ahead.

The kernel recognise yet number of luns :
2 scsi local drives, 1 lun on a SAN...

In addition; the 'dmesg' command and the boot sequence shows an error "Unknow device" (device code #31).
