Re: about Ultrium 920 tape driver

I assume LTT is working the same way in VMS as in other operating systems like hp-ux.

I assume your SCSI HBA is not at the maximum speed for this drive and the LTT does not have an information what the latest FW is.

You should pull a support ticket in LTT after the test, transfer it to a win$ system with LTT installed and open the ticket with LTT to read more details


post the ticket here.

Hope this helps!

Re: about Ultrium 920 tape driver

The ULT920 tape drive requires an HBA that run at ULTRA320 SCSI.
Check if the HBA is of this speed.

* What is the Part number of the HBA?
* Part Number of the Cable used between the Devices.
* Before Running L&TT make sure you disable all the Backup services & Windows Removable storage service.
