Seeks StorageWorks Wizard?

The Question is:

We have a 'new' TL895 (under contract) and have 4 tape drives in same although
 it came with no drives.  We moved 4 TZ89 drives from our TL894 initialized,
 calibrated, rebooted our MDR, ran sysman io Find_WWid, io auto. VMS sees the
 drives and they functio
n but the robot commands only see drive 0 not 0-3. How can we get the robot
 commands to work?  I've been told maybe we need to set the SCSI ids via the
 TL895 console but how?

The Answer is :

  Please contact your hardware support organization for assistance with
  configuring this or other storage devices.
  (The OpenVMS Wizard is unfortunately not a StorageWorks Wizard.)
  Typically, the TL895 robot is set to SCSI unit 1, and each DLT tape
  drive present is configured to sequential (and contiguous) SCSI units
  starting at unit 2.
