LTO-3 Tape drive issue on HP UX 11i

Hi Gurus,

I have HPUX 11i on L-class Machine.
It has a DLT IV tape drive connected, backup/restore works fine on this drive. But when i connect LTO-3 tape drive, OS doesn't recognise it.
I have tried rebooting but no luck.

I remember that i had used LTO-3 tape drive few days back on this server.

Please post your opinion and suggestions to fix this problem.

Thanks & Regards,
Druva Raj

When you swap the DLT and LTO drive, you should either recreate the device files or use a different SCSI ID.

Hope this helps!

Can you see the new drive in ioscan?

Can you see it when you do a search from BCH?

Hope this helps!

Torsten,

I cannot see the drive when i run the ioscan.
I have tried searching though 'SAM--> Peripheral Devices --> Tape Drive --> Diagnose Missing Tape drive'. But nothing helped.

I will search in BCH mode and let you know.

Thanks,
Druva
