Tape device files missing

I replaced two FWD DLT 4000 on K370 with two FWD DLT 8000. In ioscan -fnCtape the drives are claimed but only driver dev/rmt/c1t3d0BEST available.
infs -e normally assigns drivers but not this time.
There is no /dev/rmt/1m 1mn etc. I have tried to recreate these in SAM but I still can't get the full compliment of drivers.

Thank you.

Jez,

Possibly stale device files in /dev/rmt ?
Run


lssf /dev/rmt/* | grep '???' | awk '{ print $NF }' | xargs rm

Then try the "insf -e" again

Re: Tape device files missing

I tried the DLT 8000 Friday morning one more time & ran ioscan & the drivers were present & correct. I have no idea why this has now worked suppose I shouldn’t complain.

Thanks for your input.

Jez.
