Unable to see tape devices in ioscan

Unable to see tape devices in ioscan

We have attached a HP EML tape library to a HPUX 11.31 itanium server. Zoning has been setup for two 2 drives. We can see the HBA in ioscan, but we cannot see any drives. When I look in syslog there are the following errors:

Nov 16 12:30:02 test1 vmunix: Target path (class=tgtpath, instance=20) has gone
offline. The target path h/w path is 0/5/0/0/0/1.0x500110a0005b0b60

Nov 16 12:30:02 test1 vmunix: Target path (class=tgtpath, instance=20) has gone
online. The target path h/w path is 0/5/0/0/0/1.0x500110a0005b0b60

we are also getting numerous "LUN path probe failuers" in scsimgr.

The server has all the latest patches installed.

I would check the status and presentation from commandview TL now.

Hope this helps!

Hi, Unfortunately we don't have commandview installed.

Get it, install it!

Otherwise you cannot manage the library properly.

Hope this helps!
