Logical addresses

The tape library assigns each drive a SCSI element address that defines a logical location in the library to the SCSI interface.

The logical address of each drive is displayed in the Element Address column of the Drives table in the management GUI. This column is hidden by default.

The logical address is represented as xxxx(yyyh), where xxxx is a decimal value and yyyh is a hexadecimal value. It is assigned and used by the application when the server processes SCSI commands. The SCSI element address for a drive is unique to the location of the drive; it does not vary based on other drives in the library.
