Adding second tape drive

Adding second tape drive

Post by David Bra » Sat, 17 Jan 1998 04:00:00



Am trying to add a second scsi tape drive -
different controllers
different target ids ...

the mkdev tape only wants to write over the std as default and not
add the second drive as its own or new device.

Any ideas ???


Thank you,

Mkdev tape is the correct way to install another tape drive, whether it is on
another controler or not.  What exactly is your problem?  Exactly, what
version of SCO are you running?

When you run "mkdev tape" and pick "Add SCSI Tape Drive", what happens from
there?  Is the SCSI driver installed?

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.
