We just got a Dell PowerVault 122T LTO-2 Autoloader (SCSI), and want to use it with our Tivoli Storage Manager server - IBM p650 running AIX 5.2 and TSM 5.2.3.
We can get the OS to see the drive through IBM's ATape driver, but can't get the OS to see the library. Dell doesn't officially support AIX and does not provide AIX driver, but they to point to IBM's Tivoli support devices webpage, which listed Pv122T as supported on AIX since TSM 5.1.5.
We can see the tape drive as rmt3 in the OS, but cannot add it to TSM using SMIT or SMITTY. We get error saying the device does not match the description.
We can't even get the library to show up on the OS lsdev list.
Any suggestion or advice?
Thank you in advance,
