Does DAT40e support on HP-UX 11.00?

I am installing a Surestore DAT40e tape drive into RP2430 and I hit an error "cannot open device" when "tar". The following is my config:

1. C5678B DAT40e Tape Drive
2. RP2430 Embedded Ultra-2 SCSI interface
3. C2362B 2.5m VHDTS68/HDTS68 M/M Multimode SCSI Cable
4. C2364A (P/N: 5183-2657) LVD/SE HDTS68 Multimode SCSI Terminator
5. OS is: HP-UX 11.00


1. Should I use C2370A(P/N: 5021-1121) LVD/SE VHDTS68 SCSI Terminator instead?
2. DAT40e supports on HP-UX 11i, how about HP-UX 11.00? Please see:
3. Any patch required for this DAT40e (i.e. DDS-4) Tape Drive.

When I connect this DAT40e into another A500 server, intermittent backup failure occurs as well using "fbackup" in SAM. Please advise.

Is the drive listed with "ioscan -fn -C tape".
