HELP! added a SCSI tape drive

Post by Adriano Marc » Sun, 01 Feb 1998 04:00:00



Hello all,

Need some help......justa added a EXABYTE 8200 to my Server running SCO
Internet Fast Start 1.0.

Wen't into hardware kernel manager and added the new SCSI device, then
removed the default generic one.  The system rebuilt the kernel and
returned no errors, but now if I try to do a back up with either the
default SCO back up manager or Microlite backup edge.......is there a step
I have missed setting up?  

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Your system does not find the tape during boot phase. For IBM tapes normally
plug them, switch them on, boot up the system and AIX automatically
configures them.

The 220 uses other SCSI cabels than your 320 are they ok. Check the SCSI ID
of your tape - maybe you have other devices using the same ID. Run
'lscfg -v' to display all devices.
