Solaris 10 with HP LTO4 drive


We have the following environment:
- Storagetrek SL500, HP LTO4 tape, FC (via qlogic HBA)
- Solaris 10 + updated patches
- Data Protector 5.5

We need some help regarding the FC tape configuration. I've already configured Changer by following Installation guide.

"cfgadm -al" shows the FC tape as:

c4::500104f0009d2d4c med-changer connected configured unknown
c4::500104f0009d2d56 tape connected configured unknown

ls -l show :
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 69 Mar 12 10:06 0 -> ../../devices/pci@12,600000/SUNW,qlc@0/fp@0,0/st@w5

and mt -f /dev/rmt/0 status :
HP Ultrium LTO 4 tape drive:
sense key(0x0)= No Additional Sense residual= 0 retries= 0
file no= 0 block no= 0

But DP cannot see this drive when use devbra -dev it show only Changer :
