reset password and other questions for HP Surestore e2/20

Hi, I've got a out of maintenance HP Surestore tape library e2/20 (firmware rev 86) that I neend to reste the password on. As it's out of maintenance I can't log a job with HP. Help on this one would be greatly appreciated.

Another question, is there any HP-UX tools to manage the tape library etc.. Basically I want to run ignite backups to the tape library (connected to the HP-UX server by FC) and also run tar or fbackup's to it.

Thanks.

Brendan,

You can contro the robot arm with the 'mc' command. See the man pages for more details. Now you can load/unload a tape into the drive to create a backup or an Ignite tape.

Resetting the password is only possible by HP I'm afraid.

Resetting the password is only available through HP support, even if the unit is out of support/warranty, HP give you phone support for any questions, so open a call and ask to reset the password

Thanks for the help.

I had a quick look at the 'mc' command but couldn't work it out. I'll try ringing HP to reset the password so I can at least manage the library from my desktop.
