Find device files in Tru64 version V4.0 878 alpha

Hello,

I am using Tru64 V4.0 878 alpha server, very old one. I wanted to access the tape device. The normal command hwmgr does not work on this version. Well I understand that in the earlier version this command does not work. Can someone guide me to find the device files.

The device files would be under '/dev' directory.

Check out the 'Device Mnemonics' section of this URL for additional info:

Hi Ryan,

You can see the connected SCSI devices with the command:

# scu show edt

The tape device name will depend on the SCSI bus/target.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Rob

Ryan,

The tape devices in V4 will be of the form /dev/rmtN? for rewind, /dev/nrmtN? for no-rewind, where N is the device number and ? is a letter that controls tape options. See "man tz" for details.
