Installing a Ultrium 920 SAS External Tape Drive with SLES10

Hi,

Hardware is a ML150 with an E200 Raid Controller. The Controller finds the external attached Tape Drive (Bios Messages)

SLES10 does not recognize the tape drive.

Which kernel modules must be loaded?
Do I need additional drivers from HP?
Where could I get them?
If it works, what is the resulting device /dev/???

Thanks for your help,

Helge

Hi Helge,

According to the information here:

http://www.hp.com/products1/storage/compatibility/tapebackup/ISS/Detail/16-0038-0108.html

the E200 controller isn't supported. You need this card:

416096-B21 - HP SC44Ge Int/Ext PCIe SAS HBA (Internal/External)

Cheers,

Thanks a lot, you are right. I got another (supported) raid controller here - worked out of the box.

Seems that the P800 Controller of our DL360 is not supported too :-| Thats the server I finally wanted the tape to be connected to.
