actually it is connected to EVA storage also, and linux can recoqnize all EVA lun.

Re: can't detect all scsi tape

We had the same problem. The command we used to force it to recognize the drives was /usr/sbin/probe-luns -i -l -c . This should enlighten your Linux box as to the existence of the tape drives. Also we had to place this in a startup script in order for the server to recognize the tapes on a reboot.
