San team says they zoned the tape drives for server . I ran ioscan , insf and rebooted but system does not recognize the STK drives T9940B.. it shows UNCLAIMED/UNKNOWN .... Do I need to load or enable any drivers?

target 2 0/6/1/0/4/ tgt CLAIMED DEVICE
unknown -1 0/6/1/0/4/ UNCLAIMED UNKNOWN STK T9940B

Thanks in advance

You need the stape driver for the tape and probably the schgr driver for the robot.

Run this:

# kcmodule stape=static
NOTE: The configuration being loaded contains the following change(s)
that cannot be applied immediately and which will be held for
the next boot:
-- The configuration is supposed to include a module 'stape' which
is not available without a kernel rebuild.
WARNING: The automatic 'backup' configuration currently contains the
configuration that was in use before the last reboot of this
==> Do you wish to update it to contain the current configuration
before making the requested change? y
* The automatic 'backup' configuration has been updated.
* Building a new kernel for configuration 'nextboot'...
* Adding version information to new kernel...
* The requested changes have been saved, and will take effect at
next boot.
Module State Cause
stape (now) unused
(next boot) static explicit

Hope this helps!
