4. ELEMent=AUTODetect in the DEFINE/UPDATE DRIVE command is supported.

5. Quantum Scalar i40 and Scalar i80 are available with the following drives:
6. The IBM device driver is required for the IBM Ultrium drives. IBM device drivers are available at IBM Fix Central. Choose the following options from the drop-down menus.
  • Product Group -> System Storage
  • System Storage -> Tape systems
  • Tape systems -> Tape drivers and software
  • Tape drivers and software -> Tape device drivers
  • Platform -> select your platform

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 more support information including minimum supported version levels and supported platforms.

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.
