Hi

I have not used a USB device like this before,  but I imagine it is similar to defining a scsi/fc attached tape drive.  Have you tried determining the name of your device using the tsmdlst.exe?

In an administrator command prompt session;

cd c:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\console (or wherever you have installed stuff)
tsmdlst.exe

Open in new window


this will give you your TSM name that you can use for the device parameter e.g. mt0.0.0.1, then in your command;

define path server1 robotmount srctype=server destype=library device="mt0.0.0.1"

Open in new window


Cheers, JP

Hi Popesy,.
    Thanks for your answer
   Finally I find solution.
    The command :tsmdlst.exe  don't give me any result.
   In Hardware manager properties of The drive. The the name of The drive "Tape0".
    So in TSM, i have to check the checkbox consider the Tape like GENERICTAPE.
