HP LTO Drive Firmware Revs For Veritas 9.1

Hi, I am an HP Customer Engineer that had to replace a Storageworks 1/8 tape autoloader (With LTO Ultrium-1 drive) for a customer running Veritas 9.1 rev 4691. It is running on a Compaq Proliant DL360 running MS Windows 2000 Server 5.00.2195 Svc Pack 4. Now it doesn't work, just hangs the SCSI bus, times out, etc.

The customer told me that he remembered the autoloader (C9572CB) had to stay at a particular older drive firmware revision in order to work, but does not remember what that version is. The original library was replaced before I got involved and I am now stuck trying to figure out which firmware the library needs to be compatible with Veritas 9.1.

This is a shot in the dark so I ran across this site and thought I'd ask this question. So do you know of any LTO /Tape Library firmware matrixes for Veritas 9.1??

I've Googled until I'm Google-eyed with no luck.. Feel free to e-mail me at: frank.petrarca@hp.com.

The problem you described is not a driver problem. So long as you are using the Veritas drivers you should be good to go.
SCSI time-outs and disconnects are hardware problems.

Sometimes they can be resolved by changing the throughput settings on the SCSI controller connected to the drive. Controllers usually default to very high speeds because they are used for hard drives. Lowering the speeds to support the slower throughput of tape drives can sometimes help.

During the POST there should be a key combination you can press to access the setup for the controller and modify the throughput settings.

Aside from that you have to replace the SCSI controller or tape drive until you figure out which one is causing the problem. Maybe the SCSI card is not seated properly.

I hope this helps.

Hp storageworks ultrium 448 drive light blinks orange


Hi John, not sure from your description which light you refer to.

But this sounds like your drive has either had a read / write issue - in which case you need to run a new cleaning tape through the unit and then retry using a brand new data tape - OR it has had a damaged tape loaded into it which has now broken the tape drive.


If the drive has been broken then try contacting www.tape-drive-repair.com who can repair or replace it for you and also look at


http://tape-drive-repair.com/tools-and-information/lto-media-inspection-guide/


The guide will tell you how to inspect ypoour media for damage and prevent you from reloading a damaged tape which will break your drive again

We are trying to backup data files in tape drive 5 of 9 dirves but after backup by about 2 GB , there was a error , ''media full''. Product : ESL712E Product ID : HP Ultrium 2-SCSI


Tape drives are an antiquated backup solution. For less than $100 you can buy a 1 Terabyte USB 2 hard drive with space to back up even the most data-intensive systems.
