I have 3 drives and a tapedrive on a SCSI controller and need to add a RAID
drive. My drives can take only IDs 1,2,3,4,5,6. My tapedrive has been ID 4
and can be switched only in 1-7 range. Before now, I had my 3 drives
occupiing IDs 1,2,3 and tapedrive ID 4. For reason of space availability and
length of cables, I need to put the RAID between the tapedrive and the
storage array. So I gave it ID 6.
In this configuration, I have problemaccessing my tapedrive. I can call
"mt -f /dev/rmt/0 rewind" and see the tapdrive responding, but the operation
never completes. In addition, my RAID array is not configured yet and
generates lots of "saf" error messages.
Is is this because I created a chain with ID order 1,2,3,6,4?
What do I do in order to change special device files for the tapedrive
to have it on a different SCSI ID?
I run Solaris 7 on Ultra 1.
Thank you. David.
