Can't detect / configure MSL5026 S2 on HP 9000 server

Have just installed an MSL5026 S2 two drive SDLT (SCSI) library on one of our HP-UX 9000 servers (L 2000) running HP-UX 11.11.

I'm pretty sure I've cabled and terminated it correctly as per the installation guide, and I've enabled the schgr driver in the kernel and rebooted (several times). All I get on a device listing against the HBA is:

HW path Driver Desc Status
0/3 lba Local PCI Bus Adapter (782) CLAIMED
0/3/0/0 ? PCI SCSI (10000030) UNCLAIM
0/3/0/1 ? PCI SCSI (10000030) UNCLAIM

Any ideas ? I'm beginning to wonder if the unit may be faulty as the tape drives did not power up first try (no LEDs or fans - and is that a faint smell of burning, or is it just new ?). No errors logged on the library. Green lights on the terminators and all power/fans now.

Hi,

Add the following drivers to your kernel

stape, autoch.
Create a new kernel, reboot and It should work.

Hi,

I presume the library is "Alive".
The ioscan output doesn't look good though.
The PCI HBA needs to be claimed at the first palce. I suspect the problem could be driver. Which HBAs you are using, PN??

Can you post # ioscan -fn result?

The "autoch" is a device class which stands for auto changer. It is associsted with driver named "schgr".

SCSI card is P/N A7173A Dual Channel Ultra 320.

Library is 'alive'.

ioscan -fn output attached. Card is on 0/3 path (PCI slot).

Hi,

With your ioscan o/p, It's very clear that the robotic arm is not detected, I mean controller. Did u plug the robic controller FC port to teh fabric.

Also check for the robotic arm status in the controll pannel. Is there error reported in the controll pannel. If I am not wrong there will be an option for robotic self test, try it.

#ioscan -fnC autoch, and check robotic arm is detected or not, then do insf .
