Re: Tape drive partnumber

Thanks for your reply, I need to find out the part numbers for various drives most of which are dlt40/80 and sdlt110/220 the problem is that some of these drives are slightly different and using the model number doesnâ t give you the exact same part number.

I need to get the part number so I can identify faulty drives to our hardware support provider.

Re: Tape drive partnumber

I hope this part numbers can help you:

Tape drive, 110/220 GB, SDLT P/N:233125-001

Tape drive, 40/80 GB, Internal DLT P/N:154871-001

Tape drive, 40/80 GB, External DLT P/N:154872-001

Where are you from.
