Re: MSL 6060 Hardware Compression Configuration

To check the compression on the drives, you will need to install the Library and tape Tools:
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/ltt/index.html

With the L&TT you can download the scripts to check the compression setting as well as a bunch of other goodies.

Be sure to update the bios of the 6060 and the internal drives...
Enjoy!

Re: MSL 6060 Hardware Compression Configuration

Hi,
The hardware compression is by default enabled in these MSL's
You can try to get the information from the STM and see if you can see the details of compression or else LTT is always there.
