How do I find and configure a tape device that's out on the fabric?

Would running the cfgmgr command be sufficient to configure a tape drive that is already "zoned," or are there additional steps required?

Correct SAN zoning provided running cfgmgr is generally sufficient.

Please note that you should have the appropriate  drivers installed beforehand - the basic AIX drivers (devices.fcp.tape.rte) or special (third party?) drivers like "Atape.driver" if you need particular fuctionality.
