Just SCSI chain them:SCSI controller - drive1 - drive2 - robot arm - SCSIterminator

The SCSI id's can be changed from the library console in front but by default they should have already different SCSI id's.

Re: MSL6030 Tape Drives


You library looks something like the attached image or similar. I think the connectors are positioned differently on the 6030 then on the 5xxx series. Either way, it works the same way.

The left side is cabled to 2 hosts or 1 host with 2 controllers/2 cables.

The right side is cabled to 1 host, 1 cable.

Look here... for the installtion poster and here... for additional pdf documents.

By default, the library should be set up so that both drives have different ID's. You should not need to change them. (As Kurt Stated)
