I've come across this problem a couple times. What I do is when the prob
already is there (such as in your case), remove all the entries with mkdev
tape -> remove tape
Rebuild kernel. There will be error messages. Reboot.
Start mkdev tape again and look how many tape units still (seem) to be
Then look at /etc/comf/cf.d/mscsi and add here a Stp line, ie something like:
cha Stp 0 6 0 0
for every tape unit that mkdev tape mentions. (change id's)
Then remove with mkdev tape the tape devices. Build new kernel and reboot.
Now the system knows again that there should be no tape drives at all. And
you can start all over.
But it is best to remove the genereic SCSI tape device right after complting
Lot of luck.
