check the ioscan, found out that the above device file for ESL9000 had change to c32t0d0. suspect this is the reason causing data protector cant open the ESL9000 library.

Re: dev path changed

Rupert,

The device files in HPUX stay normally fixed.

Just change the definition of the robot arm in Data Protector or create a symbolic link for the old device file towards the new device file. Then Data Protector can control the robot arm again.

best regards,
Kurt
