Firmware personality changes for HP Ultrium 2 tape drive

We are unsuccesfully tried to download different firmware personality into a HP Ultrium 2 tape drive. The drive just wouldn't take the firmware with different personality. Is there a work-around solution to this? Any help would be appreciated.

Personality is made to avoid loading unsupported FW on a drive. I think there is no way to avoid this security.
This can be made only by the Factory

Hi Tom,


the reason is .... the personality!


That's what personality was made for.
No work-around.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
