The easiest thing tgo do is probably download Library and Tape Tool. There is a web update feature that does out and grabs the latest firmwares for all tape/library devices.

From there, you can also update the firmware with the utility.

Here are the Windows Downloads...

Can I also do the E1200 bridge from that utility?

Yes, provided that the controller LUN is mapped. If not, you could map it (temporarily) to the server running LT&T or update the E1200 via FTP.

Re: MSL6000 - E1200 bridge

It is a special SCSI LUN that represents the E1200 module so that a host can talk over Fibre Channel to it. I don't have the documentation with me, but I think the E1200 user interface calls it "AF".

Re: MSL6000 - E1200 bridge

Hi,

Is this really the right code for the NSR 1200-160?
I managed to download the code into the bridge through serial connection, and it asked for cold reboot. After doing that the bridge seems a bit dead... There is light in fc port, but I cannot contact it through the serial port.

When I read the release notes for the files, I see that the code is for StorageWorks Network Storage Router n1200-320, but I do not see the n1200-160 unit in there.

What does this warning from the fw release notes means?
I have an MSL6000 with E1200-160 and LTO4

The 5.9.44 interface controller code should only be used with interface manager I232 and above (EML and ESL-e), and I182 (ESL9000). If you are using interface manager code between I200 and I231 then you will need to upgrade to I232 in order to use 5.9.44. Failure to perform the interface manager upgrade may result in an issue where hosts recently added to the SAN do not appear in the Command View TL (CVTL) list of known hosts even after clicking on the "Refresh" button in the "Add Known Host/HBA" dialog".

You can ignore this - this is related to EML/ESLe series libraries - they use the same NSR, but management is different.

Hope this helps!
