Tape Drive replaced in 11.31, Getting "No passthru access to this drive"

We have HPUX 11.31, and a SAN attached tape was replaced.  After it got replaced, I did :

 

 # scsimgr replace_wwid -D /dev/rtape/tape78_BEST dsf

 # insf -eC tape

 

The device is showing claimed. When I backup via NetBackup I'm getting:

 

"Error bptm (pid=21742) No passthru access to this drive".

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks,
f. halili

Re: Tape Drive replaced in 11.31, Getting "No passthru access to this drive"

Shalom,

 

The new tape drive was detected as a new device, and got a new driver created.

 

Please post:

 

ioscan -fnCtape

 

You will see a new tape device.

 

Please post relevant ioscan data.

Re: Tape Drive replaced in 11.31, Getting "No passthru access to this drive"

I'm wondering if this new one got a persistent device, rather than a legacy device file like all the others and that's what's messing things up.

Re: Tape Drive replaced in 11.31, Getting "No passthru access to this drive"

Since most libraries keep the same WWN even for replaced drives, in most cases no action necessary. What type of library do you have?

Hope this helps!

Re: Tape Drive replaced in 11.31, Getting "No passthru access to this drive"

With 16 drives? Really? So it must be a stacked 4 module 6060 ( 4x msl6060). Can you confirm?

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Tape Drive replaced in 11.31, Getting "No passthru access to this drive"

Shalom,

 

Thats a lot of drives.

 

16 really?

 

I suspect some of them are not valid or working.

 

This is extremely complex. I would suggest logging a software call at the Response Center.

Re: Tape Drive replaced in 11.31, Getting "No passthru access to this drive"

We have 4 MSL 6060s stacked on top of each other. (PS. To all this is my first day using the post ITRC forum so bear with me. I don't see any icons for points. A little more time and I'll figure it out . Some of the icons are not showing as well.... hmmm ) Thanks, f. halili
