Hi there.
The hardware will only be shown on the partition,where it is connected.
there are s4everal ways to approach a solution.

1 Connect the tape array to a switch and connect this switch to both partitions.

2 Open a nfs filesystem on the second partition, which will be accessible from the first partition, backup your stuff to it and then put it on tape from there through partition 1.

3 if you have more than one drive, you can connect one drive to the second partition, but the robot will only work from partition 1. So you must work the robot through rexec.

Hope i could show you some way.
