Hi

Check your connection again.

Then do insf -e or insf -C tape
then do ioscan -funC tape

Hi,

ioscan with the u uption does not scan hw.
use ioscan -fnC tape. then do insf -e.

also check stape driver from kernel drivers in sam.

This smartarray controller is for disks **only** - you need another HBA.

Hope this helps!
