StorageWorks 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader only found as single Ultrium drive

Hi,

I hope somebody can give me a hint. I have a Proliant DL380 G4 with 2 Controllers (smartarray 6400, smartarray 6i). Connected to the Smartarray 6400 is a  StorageWorks 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader. The autoloader however is only recognized as a single Drive, no matter what tool I use (Windows Hardwaremanager, array configuration utility, hp library and tape tools).

There is no Autoloader oder Library detected, only one HP Ultirum 3-SCSI Drive. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any tip

Florian

hi,

 

The issue is most probably with the controller. You should use a separate SCSI HBA and not a smart array controller.

 

Thanks!

AFAIR bot smartarray don't support libraries at all (but maybe tape drives only).

So you NEED a separate SCSI controller.

Hope this helps!
