Configuration Information for ADIC Scalar 10K


Beginning with Version 7.1.3, IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager is now IBM Spectrum Protect™. Some applications such as the software fulfillment systems and IBM License Metric Tool use the new product name. However, the software and its product documentation continue to use the Tivoli Storage Manager product name. To learn more about the rebranding transition, see technote 1963634.

1. Library capacity
648 drives 16000 slots

2. Barcodes are supported. Scalar 10K does not recognize a cartridge without a valid barcode label. Always put a readable barcode label on a cartridge that will be used in this library. Without valid and readable barcode labels, Tivoli Storage Manager will not support this library.

3. Device identifications and firmware levels used during validation

Related APAR

This APAR affects ADIC libraries with SDLT 220, SDLT 320, and AIT drives.

Library and drive may require different minimum Tivoli Storage Manager levels. Therefore, ensure that both library and drive hardware are supported. See "Supported Devices for AIX, HP-UX, Solaris and Windows" or "Supported Devices for Linux" for minimum supported version levels and platforms for these devices.

More information regarding device configuration is available in the Tivoli Storage Manager Administrator's Guide, which can be found in the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager information center.
