Help wanted 4 config of Quantum Scalar i2000 on Solaris 8
October 21, 2009 01:28PM
Need to access a Scalar i2K library from our Networker Solaris 8 Server (yes it is old I known :) as a quickNdirty since all former STK drives are dead, a current well working sol8 server needs new tape drives. So we attached a i2K across our Fabric.

Solaris sees the drives on the fabric and they are static bounded in lpfc, but the drivers 'st' & 'sgen' won't known of the LTO4 drives & changers, howto get sol8 know of LTO4 drives of i2K?

Any hints on getting 'st' & 'sgen' to know on the LTO4s are most welcome!

TIA

Help wanted 4 config of Quantum Scalar i2000 on Solaris 8

:D Turned out my library manager didn't configure it correctly so it didn't map any tape drives to my host and thus I could only see scsiclass C (aka array_ctrl) and no scsiclass 1 (sequentiel/tape) nor scsiclass 8 (changer) devices. Once the i2K library got configured corrrectly then I could access both tape drives and changers just fine.

Need to access a Scalar i2K library from our Networker Solaris 8 Server
(yes it is old I known :) as a quickNdirty since all former STK drives
are dead, a current well working sol8 server needs new tape drives. So
we attached a i2K across our Fabric.

Solaris sees the drives on the fabric and they are static bounded in
lpfc, but the drivers 'st' & 'sgen' won't known of the LTO4 drives &
changers, howto get sol8 know of LTO4 drives of i2K?
