HP MSL 4048 Tape Drive replacement with LTO6

Dear Fellows,

i'm having HP tape library MSL 4048 thats with an LTO4 drive, recently we planned to change the drive to LTO6 and i have following questions:

1. Is it supported on MSL

2. do i need to install the tape drivers 1st so the library detects the drive.

2. if so where do i fend the related drivers and will the cell clients be able to perform with this new drive without any software requirement.

thanks.

Point your browser to the MSL and update firmware to version 9.00 first.

Then swap the drive and check the firmware of the new drive.
