Re: tape drive not detecting hp unix 11.31

So are you trying to use the legacy tape device files (under /dev/rmt), when on 11.31 you should be using the new agile DSFs (under /dev/rtape)

 

I guess you don't see your tape drives when you run:

 

ioscan -funC tape

 

what about if you run:

 

ioscan -funNC tape
