Marino I have installed the LTT but the OS is HPUX 11 and the server have no access to internet for safe reason. so I need the firmware for the DLT drive and for the autoloader itself.

The actual version of the autoloader is 2060.
The version of the DLT is v020,

How you can see is to older.

Re: firmware update HP surestore tape library 1/9

two options:

first is to install the tool on your pc, and retrieve the file with ltt, and then transfert it to the directory \firmware in your server,

second is to locate the file here

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/information_storage/software/ltt/firmware/

if the firmware is not the correct one, L&TT will refuse to load it to the autoloader

You can also download the firmware bundle for the 1/9 library from the HP support web site. The bundle includes the drive and library firmware for use with HP L&TT. Since your library firmware is 2060 please take note: *Libraries with DLT 8000 drives CAN NOT be directly upgraded from 2060(or earlier) to 2300(or later). Bridge to 2260 before proceeding.

The firmware bundle includes the 2260 firmware and the latest 2710 version.

There is also DLT 8000 V059 and V080 firmware versions in the bundle.
