Re: how to find the cliamed tape drive

It looks like these are fibre connected devices. How may fibre cards do you have in your system? How many connections from your server to the msc6000?

My guess is that the server is seeing each different path to the drives as a unique drive.

Please run ioscan -funC fc & check the drives connected to the FC path.

Re: how to find the cliamed tape drive

Even a stacked MSL6000 can have not more than 16 drives - but you have around 30!
Please tell some more details about your configuration (how many drives, connection details, etc ...).

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: how to find the cliamed tape drive

Are you connecting to these tape drives directly or through a SAN switch? If through a switch, check your zoning, do you have other devices zoned in with this server and library?

Re: how to find the cliamed tape drive

First of all I would connect to the NSR and check the mapping.

Hope this helps!
