Library and Tape Tools - RHLinux AS 3.0 support?

When will the HP StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools be available for RedHat Linux AS 3.0?

This site indicates that this version of the OS is not supported yet but previous versions are.

Re: Library and Tape Tools - RHLinux AS 3.0 support?

Thanks for the question/request, Don.

HP LTT supports many operating systems and over 130 HP StorageWorks tape products from the very old to the very new (and those yet to be released). The level of support for these products, particularly the Ultrium tape drives and new libraries is also increasing (more accurate health assessment for instance).

Unfortunately, the ever increasing variety of Linux based operating systems is causing us difficulty and it's not been feasible to keep up. We are very aware of this issue and working on a realistic roadmap to catch up and stay up. My expectations are we'll get there spring/summer 2006 but I can't commit to a date at this time.

At least be aware that we recognise the issue and are actively working on it.

Thanks for your feedback. Always welcome - this tool is for you guys after all.
