How to show SAS Tape in the hp-ux v3

Re: How to show SAS Tape in the hp-ux v3

- the kernel configuration needs to include the driver for the SAS controller

- the kernel configuration needs to include the "estape" and "stape" drivers (= the generic drivers for most tape drives). To check, run "kcmodule | grep stape". If it says "static" and "best" for both drivers, they have been configured correctly.

- if the drivers are OK, the tape drive should be visible in "ioscan -fnNCtape" listing (and the legacy /dev/rmt device nodes can be viewed with "ioscan -fnCtape")

- if the tape drive is in CLAIMED state in the ioscan listing but there are no /dev/rtape/ and/or /dev/rmt devices listed, run "insf -eCtape" to refresh the device nodes, then run the ioscan commands again.
