  1. IBM does not provide application software with the drive. To order software, contact your IBM sales representative, IBM Business Partner, or an independent software provider.
  2. If you attach your drive to a server with non-IBM software, contact your software vendor for a matrix of compatible hardware, software, firmware revisions, and adapters.
Note: Dependent on the use of Random or Sequential Mode, the drive might require an HBA with multiple LUN supports. Also, multiple LUN supports must be enabled on the host computer. When multiple LUN supports are not enabled, the host computer can see the tape drive, but not the library.
