MSL6030 ioscan

I have connected MSL6030 2 drive library to A class running 11.11 using SCSI.

When i do ioscan -funC autoch, it shows MSL5000 series

autoch 1 0/6/0/0.0.0 schgr CLAIMED DEVICE COMPAQ MSL5000 Series

What should be done so that it shows as MSL6000?

In my opinion there is no way to change this
because MSL5000 and MSL6000 has the same
changer robot.

Re: MSL6030 ioscan


Start with an unonditional scan of the autochanger 'ioscan -fnC autoch' to see if it remains at MSL5000

But anyway as long as the 'ioscan -fnC tape' gives a Ultrium2 drive as response, it is only an estetical error.
