Which library ????

 

In HPUX 11.31

 

do

 

ioscan -m lun <DSF path of tape drive>

then

rmsf -H < the hardware path which u get from the above command>

 

replace the drive.

 

then again execute insf.

It depends if the tape is SCSI or FC connected and it depends on the library model.

 

Some library models assign the same WWN to a new tape drive, so you don't need to do adjustmensts.

 

Just in case the drive is still "NO_HW" after replacement in ioscan, you need to do (tape8 as an example):

 

# scsimgr -f replace_wwid -D  /dev/rtape/tape8_BEST dsf



Hope this helps!
