The Question is:
How do we move a TL891 tape drive to a new node we are adding to the cluster?
The Answer is :
Please contact your hardware services organization, and request
assistance -- this question must consider power and physical
mountings of course, the SCSI configuration, related physical
This question also must consider host driver and application
software support, as tape loaders such as the TL891 are usually
configured with host-based loader or library software.
OpenVMS will support most loaders -- those with sequential tape
access capabilities -- without special software, but addressing
specific media within the loader or library will generally require
loader or library software.
The OpenVMS Wizard will assume this is a question of hardware
and/or software requirements, and not one of licensing or shipping
or insurance or other issues that could have been the intention of
the question. (One- or two-line questions are difficult to answer,
as such questions are very often highly or entirely ambiguous.)
