Post Help wanted 4 config of Quantum Scalar i2000 on Solaris 8 
Need to access a Scalar i2K library from our Networker Solaris 8 Server (yes it is old I known Smile 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

Very Happy 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.
