Relocating TL8* DLT Loader SCSI Hardware?

» close window

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.)
