superDLT 160/320 library firmware??

Could someone please confirm that the Library drive's firmware is the same as the Stand-a-lone drive's firmware??

We have a library drive from an MSL and on the brick it states: Compaq's Model TR-S23XA-CA is a 160/320 SDLT LIB DRV, LVD assembly 257322-001

Running 4.0 of HP's LTT tools it accepts a load from the stand-a-lone image... thus

Is this correct?

my thanks

Firmware could be the same, but personality may be different.
Only a problem, when personalites are different on 2 or more drives.

Re: superDLT 160/320 library firmware??

My impression is that if the personality is different then the could load should abort as with the older DLT 8000's and below.

I really do not understand the 2 drive issue please explain.

For the SDLT 110/220, and for the 160/320, there is a common firmware personality (CPQ-2) used for BOTH standalone and autoloader/library drives.

This is not the case for SDLT600, in which we separated out the personalities.

If you use LTT "get files from web", and "show all firmware", you will see only one personality type listed for the Compaq SuperDLT1 and SDLT320 products. Under HP SDLT600" there are multiple personalities.

Note, in LTT "get files" the SDLT-320 personality says "CPQ-2 Standalone", but it is really for standalone AND libraries.
The journey IS the reward.
