Ur using any backup software in Ur system (AIX 5.3).

Because CLI mode is very critical manipulate the robotic arm, best way U using (IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or HP Data Protector) software.

Re: MSL 4048/SCSI and AIX 5.3

with the msl 4048 in sequential mode all ok

its work for me, the robot move the tape in mode sequential, 1,2,3,4...48.

if you want try move the robot with aix, you will need mtx and generic scsi driver(GSC).
