3480 tape drive for RISC-6000

3480 tape drive for RISC-6000

Post by Jason Heirtzl » Fri, 12 Apr 1991 09:30:44

Is anyone using an IBM 3480 (compatible) tape drive for the RISC-6000?

The only one that I've found so far is from StorageTek, but I have no
knowledge of how well it works.

Any experiances (both positive and negative) would be helpful.



1. Can the Risc-6000 8mm tape drive read Exabyte tapes?

This is another candidate for an FAQ posting; but can the internal 8mm tape
drive on a Risc-System 6000 read an Exabyte tape written from another
machine such as a Sun?  If so, what do I need to do to get it to work?  Or
do I have to buy a tape drive from Exabyte and try to attach it to our
POWERserver 530?  We are running AIX3.1 3003 by the way.  Thanks in advance.
