Tape drives (/dev/nrmt0h: No such device or address)

hI
How can i review what are the tape drivers available for being used in my system?

I mean, there were 2 tape drives damaged and they were replaced and it was used nrmt0h for doing the backup and now when i try to use the command it appears:

root3[14]# mt -f /dev/nrmt0h stat
/dev/nrmt0h: No such device or address

what do i need to do for doing backups again?

Regards :0) .....

Hmm. There doesn't appear to be a tape drive attached...

Are you sure everything is connected correctly ?

Cables to the tape drive(s)? Your problem
_is_ with tape drives, isn't it?

Other potentially useful information:

What kind of system? "my system" may tell
you a lot, but it says nothing to anyone
else.

What kind of SCSI adapter(s)?

Where/how are the tape drives connected?

SCSI IDs?

How much has changed since things worked?

Same to you.
