Sun StorEdge L9 on HPUX System

Hi,
Does anybody know if/how you can attach a Sun StorEdge L9 DLT8000 tape library to a HPUX system. We are running an rx8620 with 11.23.
I have attached the drive to the server, but it is not seeing the drive. Ioscan does not show the drive at all. The tape drive is set autodetect. Is there a driver from HP that would recogize it. I've tried it on anohter server, but still the same thing.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi ray,

Have you added the following drivers to your kernel
stape and autoch ?

Luk,

I ran kmtune, and do NOT see either stape or autch in the parameters. Should I add the drivers?

Luk,

Correction. The stape driver is there, and is in Unused state, but the autoch is not listed at all.
