Why tapetool say COMPAQ MSL5000 for MSL6060?

Hi All,

I got error(F001: Bad image CRC) when upate firmware for MSL6060 with MSL 6000 Series on WebGUI. Ofcourse, It is ok for CRC. I upload it as binary mode with ftp client.

So, I try to debug HP TapeTool 4.21.

However, Tape Tool show COMPAQ MSL5000 instaed HP MSL6000

The following is identity information for the selected device. You can use commands to select functionality to perform on this device.

Product ID               : MSL5000 Series
Model Name               : MSL Series Library
* Internal Serial Number : Delete by User
Drive Technology         : LTO
Firmware Rev             : 0513
Target ID                : 0
Target LUN               : 0
Number of Drives         : 4
Number of Slots          : 58

* May not match external serial number

=============

  22 COMPAQ MSL5000 Series (Address: 34.0.0[3-50/1/0/14/1/0/4/0.1.4.255.0.0.0])
  23   Drive 1:HP Ultrium 3-SCSI (Address: 34.0.1[36-50/1/0/14/1/0/4/0.1.4.255.0.0.1])
  24   Drive 2:HP Ultrium 3-SCSI (Address: 34.0.2[24-50/1/0/14/1/0/4/0.1.4.255.0.0.2])
  25   Drive 3:HP Ultrium 3-SCSI (Address: 35.0.0[33-51/1/0/14/1/0/4/0.1.5.255.0.0.0])
  26   Drive 4:HP Ultrium 3-SCSI (Address: 35.0.1[34-51/1/0/14/1/0/4/0.1.5.255.0.0.1])

===========================

But, This is MSL6000 like below picture.

KakaoTalk_20160627_180437468.jpg 

I guess, maybe controller change to MSL5000 Series.

Is it resonable reason to fail update firmware with MSL6000 ?

If it is true, How can fix it to MSL6000?

I find two part number 606834-007 and 231671-001. but, I can not find difference

Could you advice for this case?

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

TaeSang

It is reporting as an MSL 5000 so it is almostly certainly only going to accept MSL 5000 firmware.  There should have been MSL 5000 firmware in the firmware bundle that you downloaded as the 5000 adn 6000 firmware images are always bundled together.  If you don't have the official bundle this link should get you to it:

AFAIR you can set the model with MSUTIL tool.


Hope this helps!

ftp://g2t4706.austin.hp.com/pub/softlib/software4/COL8954/co-23779-1/MSLUTIL_V42.zip

 

The tool can be used to configure using a serial connection.


Hope this helps!
