[Wlug] SCSI Tape Drive Question
30 May 2001 15:50:23 -0400
We have a kicking VA Linux 4450 server with a VXA-V17 tape drive in it.
Unfortunatly the tape drive isn't seen by linux.
It shows up in the scsi bios utilities. There is no mention of a tape
drive in dmesg or /var/log/messages after bootup, and it doesn't work
when you try something like "mt -f /dev/st0 status".
The drive is on scsi channel B, does that make a difference? Is there
some way to scan the scsi bus manually? I checked /proc/config.gz and
tape drive support is built in.
Any ideas, suggestions?
