mcicap for MSL6000

Hello,

I'm configuring a new system with a MSL6000 library.

I didn't find the mcicap entries for the library so mcutil is not working, in particular with -e option.

Where is it possible to find the mcicap description for this library ?

Regards

Daniel

For your other question :

Yes the device is available. Yes xrobot (MRU) is working fine with this device.

The only point is that I need to put some tc:model in /etc/mcicap so that mcutil works fine.

Try
msl6000|Compaq MSL6000:\
:it=scsi2:dt=tape:
:bc:vt:is:pa:pe:re:
:rs:sv:ls:ae:
:mc=/dev/mcxxx:
:dn="/dev/changer/mcxxx":

Re: mcicap for MSL6000

An entry within the /etc/mcicap should look like:

msl6000:Compaq MSL6000:\
:it=scsi2:dt=tape:bc: \
:vt:is:pa:pe:re:rs:sv:ls:ae: \
:mc=/dev/mc0: \
:dn=/dev/changer/mc0:

mc and nd must point to your changer devices.
use hwmgr -show scsi to locate the changer device!

have a look into "man mcicap" for more information about the flags.
