Hi,
IBM LTO drives need a special driver (ATDD) which can be downloaded from IBM but, perhaps you should check this thread before:

I downloaded the drivers from following site
ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/storage/devdrvr/HPUX/11i_PCI/
and installed the drivers. Then I changed kernel parameters for acdd to be loaded automatically. And it fixed the issue.

Thanks everybody.
