Verify SDLT Media

I'm using SDLT tape drive on HPUX 11.11. When I used mt -t /dev/rmt/0m status command, I cannot see any media/tape format for the device even I load good media on it.

$ mt -t /dev/rmt/0m status
Drive: COMPAQ SDLT320
Format: -----> Not showing anything.
Status: [0]
File: 0
Block: 0

Anyone can please advice me how to verify the tape was loaded or not ?

Re: Verify SDLT Media

You probably need to install patch PHKL_34552 which fixed some SDLT and Ultrium problems in the stape driver.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
