tru64 replaced faulty tape drive now unable to use new tape drive

Can this be resolved simply by a reboot of the gs1280

Re: tru64 replaced faulty tape drive now unable to use new tape drive

Rather than reboot, I'd try:

ls -lL /dev/tape
dn_setup -boot
ls -lL /dev/tape

New device file names there may be your new
tape drive.

Also potentially informative:

hwmgr -view devices

Did you consider mentioning the OS version,
or any information about how the tape drives
were configured/connected?

If you use Tru64 5 or above, please post the output of:

hwmgr scan scsi
hwmgr v d

Maybe, you just need to relocate the tape device number with

dsfmgr -m
