Archive 4350xt Tape on SS20

Post by Bud Huddlest » Sat, 10 Aug 1996 04:00:00

I have installed a Archive 4350xt tape drive on a SPARCstation 20
running Solaris 2.4.  I added the following information to the st.conf
file as instructed by Conner.

"Conner 4mm CS2000DAT/4000DAT", 14, "Archive Python",0x30, 512,
{0,0,0,0}, {0,0,0,0}


When I try to run the dd command, I get an error message saying that
there is a syntax error on line 70 which is the (ST_KNOWS_EOD | ST_BSF
| ST_BSR | ST_VARIABLE),5000, 5000, line.  
I copied the information from the Conner fax as closely as possible.

Does anyone have any experience installing the same or similar Archive
tape drives on Solaris?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1. Formatting tapes with an Archive 5945 tape drive

I have an Archive 5945 (QIC-24) tape drive with an Emulex MT-02
controller hooked up to my Seagate ST-01 SCSI host adapter in my PC.
(Not very modern equipment huh? ;-)

I'd like to format some QIC-24 tapes so I can make some backups
under Linux. But, AFAIK, noone has created anything that will format
tapes under Linux.

Does anyone know of any DOS software that will do the format with my
equipment??? Where can I get it???
