Re: tape drive is not detecting

If you want to install the stape kernel module, run:

# kctune stape=best

Hi,

You need to enable stape driver in kernel.

Goto SAM->Kernel configurations->Drivers->select stape -> Goto actions ->Add drivers to kernel and rebuilt the kernel

After reboot run insf -e

Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: tape drive is not detecting

Shalom,

stape is not a tunable parameter.

It is a driver.

Here is hopefully some help with this OS which is a little different than previous versions of HP-UX

As I do my research real time, I see that stape has been superseded with something new.

Maybe superseded... I've done a fair share of 11.31 systems but now that I'm thinking about it none with a tape drive yet.

I'd like to learn from this, please post your solution.

Re: tape drive is not detecting

Hi expert,

When i'm getting NO H/W then i have removed the device file rmsf -H .

Tried ioscan -fnC tape but noting is coming and then rebooted the server after that tape drive has detected with different divice file name.

my query is, there are any posibility to detect tape without rebooting and what happened after rebooting it's detecting?

Regards
Kk

Re: tape drive is not detecting

There is no SAM in 11.31, only smh.

As long as there is no driver, insf won't help.

Do

# kcmodule stape=static
NOTE: The configuration being loaded contains the following change(s)
that cannot be applied immediately and which will be held for
the next boot:
-- The configuration is supposed to include a module 'stape' which
is not available without a kernel rebuild.
WARNING: The automatic 'backup' configuration currently contains the
configuration that was in use before the last reboot of this
system.
==> Do you wish to update it to contain the current configuration
before making the requested change? y
* The automatic 'backup' configuration has been updated.
* Building a new kernel for configuration 'nextboot'...
* Adding version information to new kernel...
* The requested changes have been saved, and will take effect at
next boot.
Module State Cause
stape (now) unused
(next boot) static explicit

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
