Drive not seen

TL891 with 1 DLT drive. 5 servers using KGPSA-BC PCI Host Bus Adapters. Feed via fibre to Storage Hub 12. From Hub to FCTC-2 and then to Tape Library. TSMC 1.1 sees the Library but no drives. When standard test is run result is "ABORT: # of drives improperly defined for library" HELP please. Try to install Arcserve 6.61 and the tape library fails as no drives detected. FCTC-2 firmware is c9912j. Any ideas out there?

Re: Drive not seen

Finally got problem sorted. First thing, ignore the TL891 setup as per the instruction book!! Set SCSI id as 1 for library and 2 for first drive and 3 for second. (thanks Compaq for making that so plain!). Then throw away the driver disks that come with the Host Bus Adaptors, who needs them. Got updated drivers from Emulex web site and used those. Result was a working system with no errors. If anybody else has this problem the driver file is lp6nds35.sys and the version I used was 4.4.52a7.
