Re: Tape drive in unclaimed status

Looks like a SCSI DAT drive.

You must have the "stape" configured into the kernel. Use SAM to do this. After a reboot the drive should be CLAIMED.

Hope this helps!

Re: Tape drive in unclaimed status

Thanks for the inputs Torsten

I have got the solution for my problem below are the comments from HP Competency Center

"The only Ultra320 SCSI card supported by HP-UX on rx6600 is the A7173A - PCI-X 2-channel Ultra320 SCSI

403051-001 is a single channel Ultra320 that is compatible with ProLiant ML & DL servers. It will not have been qualified to operate in an rx6600, and there is no support for this card in an rx6600. "
