DLT1 drive on SuSE 8.0

I have just been told to manage a DELL PowerEdge6400 Database Server. I have to find the proper media management software for DLT1 tape for Oracle RMAN backup , but to do this, I have to know the vendor and the model.
There is no visible vendor name and model on tape, and when I type cdrecor -scanbus, I get the result "bnchmark DLT removable tape".

How may I reach, identify, read, write, and manage the tape drive on Suse Linux?

You may be able to find out by doing
cat /proc/scsi/devices
All connected SCSI devices should be listed there with Vendor, device id, etc.

Failing that, ensure that the DLT drive is plugged in at boot time. If you are allowed, reboot the server, then check the output of
dmesg
The vendor and ID might be listed there.
