1. Maximum numbers of drives and storage slots supported
  • 1 drive 6 slots

2. These autoloaders are available with DDS4 drives.
    3. Device identifications and firmware levels used during validation process
      Seagate Scorpion 40/240
      • Library ID : Seagate DAT 06241-XXX --- FW : 9040
      • Drive ID : Seagate DAT 06241-XXX --- FW : 9040
      4. Seagate Scorpion 40 is not supported on AIX.

      5. CLEANFREQency=ASNEEDED in the DEFINE/UPDATE DRIVE commands is not supported on these autoloaders. To have the TSM server activate drive cleaning automatically, use CLEANFREQuency=gigabytes. For example, CLEANFREQuency=100; the server will load the drive with a cleaning cartridge each time 100GB of data is processed.

      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.
