Re: tape drive not dectecting on rx 2602 itanium server

From the following link:

"When the HP StorageWorks DAT 40 is connected to the external SCSI port no other non-tape device should be attached and hard disk slot ID2 must be left unused"

http://www.hp.com/products1/storage/compatibility/tapebackup/IPF/Detail/16-0013-0095.html

In case you have a disk in this slot, you need an additional SCSI controller for the tape.

Hope this helps!
