HP-UX doesn't see tape drives

Greetings,

I have IA HP-UX 11.31 with 3 HBA - one dual port and another single, Cisco MDS SAN switch and EML103e with 3 FC tape drives and I wonder why does second port on first HBA couldn't see any devices though I definitely done proper zoning and configuration on EML side... I tried to restart the ports on switch, either host and library but this gave no effect... Below is the output of fcmsutil command:

/ # fcmsutil /dev/fcd1 get remote all

I tried to do insf, but with no effect
Any ideas and comments are greatly appreciated

Re: HP-UX doesn't see tape drives

Try to check with command view TL if security is enabled and adjust if needed.
"stape" driver loaded?

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Thanks for the reply.

Here is the information about driver:

/ #kcmodule -v
Module stape (1.0)
Description Legacy SCSI Tape Driver for 11.31
Timestamp Thu Feb 15 18:31:32 2007 [45D4D134]
State static (best state)
State at Next Boot static (best state)
Capable static unused
Depends On module estape:0.0.0
interface HPUX_11_31_PERF:1.0

And here is information about ports WWNs:
/ # fcmsutil /dev/fcd0 | egrep 'ID|Wide Name'

At last, CVTL Host Access configuration is attached.

I rebooted the library today morning, but nothing has changed so far...
