HP-UX 11v1 + Quantum i40 FC connected LTO

Hello
We have a rp3440 hp-ux 11.v1 with Tachyon XL2 FC card. Running DataProtector 6.11 and need to add the LTO Drive(s).

The FC-Connectino is going directly from server and into tape device.

I have a query on how to create device-files for FC-devices?

grane 57: ioscan -fnH 0/3/6

/dev/rac/c6t13d1

In DataProtector I have connection with the 'picker', but can not access the LTO
Device:

[90:1004] Device address not found.

[Normal] From: MMA@grane "LTO4" Time: 6/9/11 12:49:14
Device path discovery process finished.

In DP, I have tried to use Direct Backup - Fibre Channel, with WWN 08025531300, LUN 0x0 with no luck.

Will be greatful for all tips

NO_HW in ioscan means the device WAS visible, but it no longer is ...

Hope this helps!

Re: HP-UX 11v1 + Quantum i40 FC connected LTO

my general question was how to make device file.. the device is back on again now after a reboot.

when in SAM I choose create device file, I get

SAM failed to create the necessary device file(s). The stderr output
from the insf(1M) command is shown below. Refer to the man page for
/- insf(1M) to see possible reasons (and remedies) for this problem. -\
| Specifically, be sure that the directory portion of the path name ^
| exists, is actually a directory (as opposed to a device or other type
| of file), and is writable by root.
|
| NOTE: No device files are needed for an I/O card itself -- only the
| devices attached to the card.
|
| insf: Unable to get default files from driver stape: No match found.

Kernel:
stape In In Driver Static N/A


in the Web-gui, the Loop ID is 63.

Maybe your stape driver is just too old and needs patching ...


(swlist will report the installed bundles)

Hope this helps!
