AIT MIC Access on Solaris

AIT MIC Access on Solaris

Post by Thomas P. Kuros » Thu, 29 Apr 1999 04:00:00



I am looking for a possibility to access the MIC on SONY's AIT tape
drive (SDX-300), which I have recently installed on an Ultra2 running
Solaris 2.5.1.

So far I have not been able to locate any commercial vendor that
provides archiving software which accesses this chip; nor have I been
able to get something like a SCSI Interface Manual for the drive from
SONY, which would list the respective SCSI commands.

Does anybody know whether any software (commercial or otherwise)
exists that allows the utilization of the MIC for faster file
retrieval?

cheers, thomas
