HP StorageWorks Ultrium 1840 drives, 2 of 4 drives not visible to host

HP StorageWorks Ultrium 1840 drives, 2 of 4 drives not visible to host

I have upgraded my HP StorageWorks MSL6060 Tape Library from 2 drives LTO-3 connected via FC by adding 2 more drives LTO-4 with an extra FC card (total is now 4 drives).

From the front panel all the 4 drives are installed correctly, and visible.

For the host Windows 2008, I have zoned the new FC onto the tapelibray zone on the Fabric Switch. I am able to detect the two extra drives using HP LTT, but cannot connect to the two new drives. Windows 2008 cannot see the two new tape drives. Only the old drives are visible and working fine.

Is there a configuartion that needs to be done that i am missing?

You need to connect to the NSR and adjust the mapping.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the quick response. Kindly give more details in exactly what needs to be done. I have never configured the NSR

Basically you should include these two new tape drives in the actual map, or create a new dedicated map
Then you should assign that map to the Host that need to see these tape drives

I have added the new drive to the zone already, but I just cannot see the drives. I suspect it could be Fibre Channel mappings or some settings on the card.

what is the default IP to connect to the FC card on the Tape Library, the c00637161 mentions 1.1.1.1 IP, but I still cannot connect on this IP. The serial cable is not giving me any response as well.

Try to ping "router" probably someone set another IP address
doing that command,you may get back the ip address
Or try to log with a browser to http://router

The default setting is DHCP, the name is "Router".
If you cannot connect via network, consider to establish a serial connection.

Then you need to adjust the mapping, this means what host WWN is allowed to see which drive.

Hope this helps!
