Re: External LTO Drive nor detecting on HP RX 4640

In this storage area you need to tell about your operating system!

From the command I know it is hp-ux, but what version?

My first idea is to check if the "stape" driver is installed - check this please.

# kcmodule stape

Please provide the output of

# ioscan -fn

Hope this helps!

Re: External LTO Drive nor detecting on HP RX 4640

Hi Abhishek,

U can check first Ur external tape drive rear view....two SCSI ports or one...if it is two then U put upper port SCSI cable then U put lower port terminator if it is available & check which number if there by default "3" & 3 is good.

Check the SCSI cable & SCSI card is ok then execute from OS level "ioscan" "insf -e" "ioscan -fnC tape". Now what is status pls inform

Thanks--Yaqub

Re: External LTO Drive nor detecting on HP RX 4640

The issue has been resolved.

The problem was the HDD was configured in duplex mode, hence the external port was not working.

After configuring HDD in simplex mode the issue was resolved.

Thanks for you help
