hpux : read SDLT 600 on Ultrium 448 ?

Hi,

My customer sent me an SDLT600 tape.

On my platform, I have only an Ultrium 448 tape drive connected to hpux 11iv3.

Is it possible to read the data on the tape from this drive (data were write using "tar" command) ?

Thanks

No, this will not work.

 

A Ultrium-2 drive can read and write LTO-2 and LTO-1 tapes only.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

SDLT (Super DLT) is a different type of tape than an Ultrium aka LTO tape.

 

The cartridges are very different and it is doubtful that a SDLT would even fit in an Ultrium drive.
