Ultra 5 Solaris 7 will not recognize 4mm DDS2 tape drive

Ultra 5 Solaris 7 will not recognize 4mm DDS2 tape drive

Post by Martin Latteric » Tue, 21 Mar 2000 04:00:00



Hi,

I have the following configuration:

Ultra 5 Solaris 7 64-bit with PCI SCSI card X6540A and a Sun Unipack
4mm DDS2 tape drive (the manufacturer of the tape seems to be
Seagate). SCSI ID of the tapedrive is 4, and the tape is the only
device on the SCSI BUS. The Unipack is auto terminated. I have no
problems seeing the SCSI card, but for some reason the tape drive is
not visible, and the system doesn't create a symbolic link in the
/dev/rmt/ directory upon touch /reconfigure boot.

Are there any 64-bit drivers, patches or workarounds I need to apply
to make the drive work on my system? The tapedrive didn't come with
any patches or driver software, so any help is appreciated.

Below are the device info and dmesg.

Thanks for your help,

Martin

Ultra 5 Solaris 7 will not recognize 4mm DDS2 tape drive

Post by Steve Dy » Tue, 21 Mar 2000 04:00:00


Did you edit /kernel/drv/st.conf and add (or uncomment) the appropriate
stanzas for your particular brand of tape drive?  You might look on
Seagte's web site for the appropriate entry.

Ultra 5 Solaris 7 will not recognize 4mm DDS2 tape drive

Thanks, yes, I added the following to /kernel/drv/st.conf which
supposedly should work with that drive:

tape-config-list=
"TANDBERG TDC 4200", "Tandberg 2.5 Gig QIC","TAND-25G-VAR";
TAND-25G-FIXED=1,0x37,512,0x867a,1,0x00,0;
TAND-25G-VAR=1,0x37,0,0x867b,1,0x00,0;

Have not been able to verify that with Seagate though.

Well, a QIC tape isn't a DDS2, and some of those mysterious
strings in st.conf are matched against the inquiry data
returned by the drive, so unless the Seagate has been
programmed to say that it's a Tandberg drive, I wouldn't
expect it to work.

A "probe-scsi-all" at the OK prompt should display at least
some of the inquiry data that the drive provides.  Your best
bet would be to check Seagate's web site, though.

I have the same problem, but with a non-Sun 53c875 SCSI card. The drive
shows up with probe-scsi-all but 'boot -r' doesn't create the links in
/devices/ or /dev. The drive is a Sun 8mm.

1. tape parameters for HP JetStore 6000 4mm DAT drive, DDS2 120m tapes?

I have an external HP Jetstore 6000 DDS2 DAT drive. Does anyone have the
parameters for this drive for Sun Solaris 2.3? So far, I've found that you
need to change some internal dip switches (which by the way was very hard to
get to) to make the drive work. I'm currently using the following parameters
to ufsdump:

blocking factor 1000
density         15000
size            15000

The values for the density and size were provided by HP tech support. However,
they told us to use the highest blocking factor that our system can tolerate.
I did do some timings and found that for a blocking factor of 96, I got a
measured transfer or 266 Kbytes/s, and for a blocking factor of 2000, I got
437 Kbytes/s. So the blocking factor does make a big difference. However,
depending on what processes you are running, ufsdump may fail because of lack
of resources (swap space perhaps?).

Does this tape drive require a specific blocking factor?
