Hardware path of tape Libarary on a HP-UX N4000

Hi
On a remote site we have a C7200 tape Library connected to N4000 Server

I see that the two drives in the Library have hardware paths from two scsi cards.

Please help me understand how the connection is done

Thanks Torsten,

When I see the docs for N4000 Server I see that the slot the Hardware path is 0/4/0 but could find any slot associated with slot 0/12/0.

Surely I see the slot 8 is associated with hardware path 0/10/0

Try to run

# olrad -q

or

# rad -q

(it depends on OS); this will show the same information.

Hope this helps!
