Re: COMPAQ DLT LIBRARY SERIES 4120

I'm not familiar with a 4120 model number. There was an HP 4115 (DLT4000, 1 drive, 15 slot) library OEMed by Compaq.

What drive type (e.g. DLT4000, DLT7000, etc), how many slots, and what types of magazines does it have?

OK, the C5172L is the 15 slot DLT7000 library OEMed from HP (pre-merger).

The manual (DLT 20/40 and 35/70 tape library users guide) is too large (1.9MB) to post on the ITRC.

If you send an email to ltt_team@hp.com, and mention this thread, we can email you the manual.

Re: COMPAQ DLT LIBRARY SERIES 4120

The manual is located at http://h20015.www2.hp.com/content/common/manuals/lpg28402/lpg28402.pdf

Are you using hp-ux or MPE on the server that is connected to the library?

Alexander,

That manual is for the HP branded product, which although quite similar, is not exactly the same as the version we OEMed to Compaq (and uses different firmware).

We have the actual Compaq manual available (although not on the external website).
