What means "it wont work"?

 

This is how it looks like from cstm:

Re: Get the Seril Number of Tape Drive Installed in HP_Ux server

If you just want tape drive information you can do:

 

# echo "selclass type tape ; info ; wait ; il" | cstm

 

If you run this, and do not get a serial number from the drive, then the information may not be stored in the drive (see my 11.0 system output below).

This is what I got from one of  my 11.11 systems with an LTO3 tape drive attached:

Re: Get the Seril Number of Tape Drive Installed in HP_Ux server

Obviously the system cannot get a serial number. Why not read it from the chassis label? I wonder if this device works, because USB tape drives are not supported.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Get the Seril Number of Tape Drive Installed in HP_Ux server

No, it's not a USB tape drive.

 

The C5683A is a LVD SCSI DAT40i tape drive.

 

It may just be that the DAT drives do NOT support showing the serial number via CSTM.  If that is the case, there's not much that can be done about it.

Re: Get the Seril Number of Tape Drive Installed in HP_Ux server

What about using HP LTT (Library and Tape Tools)?

 

I ran a 'support ticket' on a DDS4 drive from an HP-UX 11.11 host and can view the following details:

 

 - Detailed Device Information
    - Tape at address (0.0.0[0-0/0/1/0.0.0])
      - SCSI Test Unit Ready returns a check condition
        - SCSI Info : 0x02 0x3A00 (Medium not present)
      - Vendor ID               : HP
      - Product ID              : C5683A
      - Controller Serial #     : XXXXXXXXXX
      - HW Config Code      : 0x00060001 (DDS4 First Generation)
      - Firmware Revision       : C111

.

.

.

 

Whereas I do not see a reported S/N from STM.   I cant confirm that the serial shown here matches the one of the drive, but it seems to be in the format the other drives report.

 

See more about LT&T here:
