    HI.

    How many paths do you have?

    Windows together the paths  automatically.

    AIX does not do it automatically. All is well with the AIX.

    You need to set up to prioritize paths: /usr/lpp/Atape/instAtape -a

        Do you enter  а License key for MultyPath in to a web console of tape library?

        After this:

        for i in $(lsdev | grep rmt | awk '{print $1}'}; do rmdev -l $i -Rd ; cfgmgr; done

        /usr/lpp/Atape/instAtape -a

        What system backup do you have?

      You need this type license: Path Failover.

      You should see the following for an example:
