Configuration Information for HP StorageWorks 30ux and Plasmon UDO Drives


HP StorageWorks 30ux
Plasmon UDO

1. When defining a device class for a UDO drive, use

  • devtype=OPTical | WORM
  • format=<DRIVE | 30GB>

    DEFine DEVclass devclassname DEVType=OPTical FORMAT=30GB .....
    DEFine DEVclass devclassname DEVType=WORM FORMAT=30GB .....

    30GB - Specifies that TSM writes data that uses the 30GB recording format. This format results in a cartridge capacity of 30GB when using UDO1 media.

2. 30 GB capacity and 8KB sector size.

3. Use the LABEL LIBVOL command to label the media. The Media Labeling wizard does not support labeling of optical media.

4. Device identifications and firmware levels used during validation
    HP StorageWorks 30ux
    Drive ID : HP AA961A
    Firmware : 3.0 (Validated in TSM 5.3.1)
    Plasmon UDO
    Drive ID : Plasmon UDO1
    Firmware : A009
    Firmware: U06 (validated with TSM 5.4.3)

5. Supported media
    HP StorageWorks
    • HP UDO 30GB Rewritable
    • HP UDO 30GB WORM
    Plasmon UDO
    • Plasmon UDO1 RW
    • Plasmon UDO1 WORM

6. All UDO1 drives report drive serial numbers.

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.
