HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

I have a rp7410 and a rp7420 server.   When I connected a DDS4 drive via a SCSI cable,  I see the  drive in the BCH menu.    But later when I go to install HPUX, the tape drive is not listed in the Hardware Summery of the HPUX installation process.   Later after the HPUX is installed, the drive is not shown in "ioscan -fnC tape".

How can the drive be seen just fine in BCH, but not seen in HPUX?

Re: HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

I have seen something similar with a bad terminator and/or a bent pin (if you have 68pin connectors) - check termination and cable.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

Hi Torsten,

Thank you for reply.  I have connected a 2nd tape drive using a second cable and terminator.   I am still getting the same result.   I can see it in BCH, but not in HPUX.

I have a few more drives, cables, and terminators.  I will try a few more to see if I can isolate this further.

Re: HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

I've tried a third drive.  So now there are three drives, cables, and terminators connected.    Same result.

Re: HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

I just tried to boot from a HPUX 11.v3 DVD to see if that we detect the tape drives.    Nope.

Re: HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

If you have an OS installed, boot up and do an "ioscan -fn", please.


Hope this helps!

Re: HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

Sadly its sees nothing.

# ioscan -funC tape

When I try to add a tape drive via SAM, its says that it needs to build the driver, it then does a shutdown -h and I have to power cycle the box to get it boot back up.   I'm not sure if the tape drivers are installed or not.

The tape drives as shown before are already connected and detected by BCH.   As I advanced, it looks like all of the drivers are already installed.

Re: HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

please share an ioscan - fn output

Hope this helps!

Re: HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

My apologies,   Here is what you requested.    

Note:  I added a fiber connected tape drive to the system and it does appear as a device.  Still not sure why my SCSI tape drives do not appear.

Re: HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

There must be something wrong between controller, cable, drive and terminator ...

However, good to know you found a solution for the initial problem

/t5/System-Administration/HPUX-11-11-can-you-boot-from-a-fiber-attached-tape-drive/m-p/6896720#M489728


Hope this helps!

Re: HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

It looks like I may have found the issue here.    I took a Dat72 Drive that we have connected to another system and connected it to this one.   I rebooted and it was properly visible.   I saw that it used a different model of terminator.

I found another terminator of the same type and placed that on one of my three drives that the system has NOT been able to see. in HPUX.  Using the new terminator, the drive was now seen in HPUX. 

 

So in short, I have several imcompatible terminators.    Uhgh. 


Thank you for you time in working with me on this.

Re: HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

this was my assumption, a bad terminatot. but all wrong? hmm, thos happens. all single ended?

Hope this helps!

Re: HPU11v1, Can see SCSI tape drive in BCH menu, but not in HP-UX.

Maybe single ended.  The old SCSI cabling seems to be a black art to me.   Some cables work, others don't.  Some terminators work, others don't. 

 

Thanks again for your help.
