DAT 160 SAS Internal Tape Drive

RedHat 5.6, I'm currently running the following configuration:


Tape drives are running on HP DL380 G7 servers(#589150-001) w/ P212 Controller(#462834-B21) and in an enclosure(3u).  All other tape drives are available, running on Windows 2008, same hardware configuration.  The DAT 160 drive when booting, all lights blink on.  Then they all turn off.  My LTO drives, the lights blink on, then the power light stays on.

Could this be a hardware issue, should the power light stay on after boot like the LTO?


Thanks for any info!
