Pinned topic TS3200 RHEL 6.3 no medium changer

‏2012-10-02T08:14:56Z |
Hi everybody.
I had a working configuration and after a power outage it stopped working. As the TL was connected to a machine for which I suspect HBA is dead (I get nothing from that machine), I had TL connected to RHEL 6.3 machine via SAS. My TL is 3573 with two ULT3580-HH5 SAS drives.
I can see the drives but not the changer. I have updated library and drive firmware, installed ln_tape drivers and tried every possible TL configuration. Red the official documentation, but had hit the wall.
Interesting is that I cannot configure logical libraries, only one is available.

Have you got any advice, idea, experince with this matter?
Desperately in need of your help!

    See that you are using a RAID adapter,
    please look at the SSIC , and try getting a adapter that is supported ..
    (RAID adapter are tuned for HD, and not really for tapedevices)
