Ultrium LTO4 over a vhost (AIX VIO)

I have a AIX VIO Server where i have presented six LTO4 Ultrium tapes simulated with a D2D4112 FC in a SAN environment:


# lsdev -Cc tape
rmt0  Available 01-08-00 SAS 4mm Tape Drive
rmt1  Available 04-00-02 Other FC SCSI Tape Drive  
rmt2  Available 04-00-02 Other FC SCSI Tape Drive
rmt3  Available 04-00-02 Other FC SCSI Tape Drive
rmt4  Available 04-00-02 Other FC SCSI Tape Drive
rmt5  Available 04-00-02 Other FC SCSI Tape Drive
rmt6  Available 04-00-02 Other FC SCSI Tape Drive

From rmt1 to rmt6 are LTO4 Ultrium  (D2D). The problem is when I need to attach the a tape to a vhost AIX (called zigma):


$ mkvdev -vdev rmt6 -vadapter vhost0 -f
"rmt6" is not a valid backing device.

This error happened before with IBM tapes with generic drivers and i can't find a driver of LTO4 Ultrium or D2D for AIX.

 

It is possible to make it work on the vhost?

 

Regards.

Daniel
