Can you give us more details of what HP machine we are talking about and whether there is RAID being used etc?

I'm confused. The title of your question refers to 'tape' but the question itself says 'disk'

Assuming you meant 'tape' -

My experience with Linux suggests you can just swap out the old one for the new and Linux will auto-detect and configure the drivers on boot. This works for SCSI and IDE/ATA/SATA tape drives... haven't tried it with fibre.

Of course, you should do the swap with the power off, and observing all the usual static precautions.

SnibborgOwnerCommented:
So we are talking about a tape drive after all?  Is it actually the tape drive you are replacing, or are you looking to restore a backup from tape to the replace a failed disk?

Doesn't make sense, HSV210 is the controller for a HP EVA4000 SAN, it can't connect to an Ultrium3 tape drive.
