No, I did not check the DIP switch. Let me check that. I did not change nothing, because the new tape was working in another server.

Thnk you..

Re: After replace a DDS2 on HPUX 11.0 the tape not wroking.

OK and when you put a tape and you make a :

# tar -cvf /dev/rmt/1m /tmp (for example)

what is the error message?

tar: cannot open /dev/rmt/1m

Re: After replace a DDS2 on HPUX 11.0 the tape not wroking.

If your cartridge is not write protected, and if the switches on the tape drive are in this position: only 4 on

I think your DDS2 is dead...

Hello,

Only 3 should be on, not 4...

Take care to put the SCSI ID the same asthe other one by comparing the jumpers on the rear of the tape drives. A different SCSI ID will create a different device file, as in your case.

Check whether the cable is fully inserted in the tape drive. If I/O error still displays, you have to replace your tape drive.

HTH,
