STK 9740 serial connection

I do not see an autoch.
What is required to create the autoch?
We have a 9740 with a serial connection. There are four tape drives, 2 9840B, and 2 9840C's.
We see the drives, but not the autoch, (robotic arm).
HP-UX unknown B.11.11 U 9000/800 1475269262 unlimited-user license. schgr is in the kernel.
Any thoughts?
We are using EMC LEGATO software.

Re: STK 9740 serial connection

This box was also sold by HP as A4845A, IIRC.

AFAIR the robotics must be on the SCSI chain, too (where else?). Is it?

Hope this helps!

Re: STK 9740 serial connection

The changer device must be connected via SCSI to the server.

Hope this helps!

Re: STK 9740 serial connection

We never had a SCSI connection, to the server. Our backup software, once it sees the autochanger, can be configured, to use it. In the past we've zoned the tape drives (from the 9740 to the server), and the server will see the robotic arm and create the autochanger.
