Re: change device name MSL6000 on VMS


VMS assigns the unit numbers for NSR connected tape drives and robots. You would use SYSMAN IO commands or edit SYS$SYSTEM:SYS$DEVICES.DAT to add a new device or change the unit numbers. See the "Guidelines for OpenVMS Cluster Configurations" manual for more information.
