MSL 6030 drive frimware upgrade

Hello,

I have upgrade my msl 6030 library firmware using the remote management interface. Is there anyway I can upgrade the drive firmware without using the LTT tool? The Remote management interface doesn't support .frm file

You can update the library using either LTT, serial connection or the web interface (different file formats!), but for the drives, only LTT is possible. You can download LTT for different OS.

Hope this helps!

kholikt,

There is a way to update from the web interface if these are LTO-based libaries, and you are on a minimum firmware level.

Is this LTO1, LTO2, or LTO3 drives?

What library code are you on?

We don't normally distribute the drive file format that the RMI can use, but I can provide you with the files if you would like to try the procedure (there a few steps that need to be done to copy the file via ftp to the library first).

Re: MSL 6030 drive frimware upgrade

Hi David & others....
Greetings & G'day...
I have a requirement to get the FTP F/Ware file G65W for LTO3 Ultrium on an MSL6030., as L&TT isn't installed at the customer site and there is a very lengthy process to comply with to install L&TT (Change request etc). Though that process has been initiated already, we don't know how long it is going to take. Meanwhile we are under a bit of pressure to upgrade the tape drive to G65W. Can anyone help with a link to the FTP file for G65W so that the local CE can upgrade the tape drive through RMI connectivity.
Thanks in anticipation of a quick response.
Kind Regards,
Shyam Aiyer.
