Which Driver for ADIC P5000 with Sony SDX-500C?

Can Someone tell me which driver to to configure into the kernel for an ADIC P5000 utilizing Sony SDX-5000 tape drives. I can see the device after connecting it but there are no drivers confiured for it. Which one should I add for 11i?

Thanx in Advance,

Ken

Standard tape library drivers are 'autoch' and 'spt'. While its 'stape' for tape drivers. Can you attach :

ioscan -fnkC tape / autoch

Although I see that HPUX is supported on the SONY website there's not much written about it.

Add in 'stape' and 'autoch' and 'spt' to the system file in this manner.

cd /stand/build
/usr/lbin/sysadm/system_prep -s /stand/build/system
vi /stand/build/system

(* search down the system file to the drivers section and check for 'stape', 'autoch' and 'spt'. Add them in if needed. *)

mk_kernel -s /stand/build/system
kmupdate
cp /stand/system /stand/system_old
cp /stand/build/system /stand/system
cd /
shutdown -h now

Shutdown the tape drives and tape library.
Power on tape drives.
Power on tape library to FULL INITIALIZATION
Only after the ADIC can see the tape drives power on the server.

Ken,
I'm not really familiar with this library, but try:
1. renumber devices in the library to be:
LUNs 0-5 are drives; LUN 6 is changer and LUN7 is FC router/bridge. Before doing it do not forget to clean old device files. This way we may have these phantom busses dissapeared;
2. check if driver 'stape' is in the kernel
