rx2660 scsi attached quantum superloader

we moved the system to a new room and now the drive is seen sporatically by the OS

This drive is used by Data Protector and I have done small backups, but the big ones fail

After a reboot this weekend, the Quantum drive is not seen by the OS at all, we do have an ignite tape backup connected to the 2nd port on the card and it is seen and I am able to do an ignite backup.

ioscan -fnC tape
Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description
tape 57 0/4/1/1.0.0 stape CLAIMED DEVICE HP Ultrium 2-SCSI

/dev/rmt/57mb /dev/rmt/c2t0d0BEST /dev/rmt/c2t0d0BESTnb
/dev/rmt/57mn /dev/rmt/c2t0d0BESTb


The Quantum tape drive sees the connection and I have rebooted the tape drive.

Re: rx2660 scsi attached quantum superloader

it appears to be the cable, I swapped the one from the ignite tape drive and now can use the quantum


thanks all
