I have a Dell 4300 Server with SCO Openserver 5.0.4 and Adaptec 7860 SCSI card,  SCO ARCserv w/ Auto loader option.  The backup software sees the tape drive as a tape drive but not as a juke box.  Has any one installed one and if so how?

Have you checked Adaptec and Sony's websites for installation FAQs and/or case studies?

Not being an OS5.04 expert I would definalty agree with Zoplax. Any device that does not have SCO drivers or 100% compatable drivers simply will not work.

An important point here is that ArcServer does not use the standard SCSI drivers on OpenServer.  Instead, it comes with it's own drivers which implement whatever particulars needed (I believe this has to do with scsi passthrough).

Thus, you have to get support from Computer Associates or SCO, not your drive or controller mfg.

Also, this question is really in the wrong category - it should be in a Unix category somewhere.

Nothing wrong with SCO, In arcserve you have to enable/load tape changer option. Only then it will be sensed as an Juke box. Procedure should be in the Arcserve manual.
