Configure Autoloader

Hi,
my customer using HP-UX ver. B.11.51 with hardware as following:Server HP Rx6440,HP storageworks 1/8 G2 Autoloader and connected to PCIe SAS SmartArray P800 RAID Controller. The problem is we can't configure it. There is no output with command #ioscan -fnCautoch or #ioscan -fnCtape. What should i do ?

Re: Configure Autoloader

Check if this combination is supported:

I doubt.

BTW, check all the numbers you wrote ... :-)

Hope this helps!

Re: Configure Autoloader

Hi,

From ur ioscan report as follows,


tape 0 0/2/1/1.3.0 stape CLAIMED DEVICE HP DAT160
/dev/rmt/0m /dev/rmt/c1t3d0BEST
/dev/rmt/0mb /dev/rmt/c1t3d0BESTb
/dev/rmt/0mn /dev/rmt/c1t3d0BESTn
/dev/rmt/0mnb /dev/rmt/c1t3d0BESTnb

Drive is detected but autoloader is not detecting . Check whether ur autoloader is supported with this server or not.
