DLT autoloader with OmniBack II 3.5

DLT autoloader with OmniBack II 3.5

I am trying to setup OmniBack II version 3.5 to use a Surestore DLT autoloader 1/9 (C7745RA)but after checking the release notes, this device is not listed. Is there a driver I can download to install into OmniBack to be able to use this device or do I have to upgrade to version 4.0 to be able to use this device.

Many thanks, GC

Hi,

Although I am not familiar with that particular
model I am fairly certain you will need to set
it up as a DLT SCSI II Library. For details on
this youcan look at Chapter 14 in the admin
guide, or if you don't have it at this link and
look for you version etc. The SCSI II library
basically looks after most units that have any
type of robotics.

and

If you haven't already, you will need to configure a seperate device for the use of the robotics.
Attached is a white paper document that describes how.
