Hi Stephen.
The HP MSL 4048 library is supported with TSM 5.3.3. See the following
instructions from the TSM Administrator's Guide for installing the TSM
device driver.
Controlling Devices on Windows Server 2003
On the Windows Server 2003 system, devices are automatically controlled
by the default Windows device driver, even if you install the IBM Tivoli
Storage Manager driver (TSMSCSI). If you are running IBM Tivoli Storage
Manager on Windows Server 2003, you must manually update the controlling
driver for each device that you want controlled by the TSMSCSI device
driver.
Perform the following procedures from the Device Manager Console:
1. Right click on the device and select Properties. Select the driver
tab and Driver File Details. This will allow you to see the driver that
is currently controlling your device.
2. You will need to configure the device to be used by tsmscsi.sys by
right clicking on the device and selecting Update Driver or by selecting
Action and then Update Driver. The Hardware Update Wizard will appear.
3. Select Install from a list or specific location (Advanced).
4. Click Next.
5. Select Don?t search. I will choose the driver to install.
6. Click Next.
7. Select the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager device driver to control the
device.
8. Click Next.
9. From the Hardware Installation panel, click Continue Anyway.
10. Click Finish.
11. Verify that the device has been configured correctly for tsmscsi:
a. Right click on the device and select Properties.
b. Select the driver tab and driver details.

George,
The steps below had already been done and the Library is using the
tsmscsi driver. Do I also have the tsmscsi driver for each tape drive.
Here is the Device Manager output:
<screen print sent to emea>
As you can see, the library has a Device Name, but the tape drives are
not reporting the Device Name as I would expect. I have added the
library and drives to the TSM server, but they keep coming up with
GENERICTAPE and I would like to see them as LTO.
<screen print sent tot emea>
When I try to check in tapes from the mail slot, I get a library I/O
error, but I can move tapes from the mail slot into internal slots using
the front panel.
We currently daisy-chain all three drives, but will be ordering another
dual channel scsi card so each drive will be on it's own channel so that
may help.

Hi Stephen,
The library and drives should all be using the TSM device driver. If TSM
driver is being used by the library and drives are all the PATHS online?
Send me the following output from TSM server cmdline:

I'll see if I can send you the output tomorrow, running out of time
today. BTW, I cannot get the tape drives to accept the IBM driver.
Windows 2003 constantly redetects them and loads it's own HP LTO driver
and cannot find the IBM driver. Is there an IBM driver for HP LTO
drives that I should be using?

Hi Stephen,
Make sure that the Windows RSM (Removable Storage) service is not
running. If RSM is running it will keep loading the Windows drivers.
The TSM device driver should be used with the HP MSL 4048.

George,
The Windows Removable Storage service is disable and not started. I
checked another TSM server with HP LTO drives and they are using the
tsmscsi.sys driver file. I did not set them up so I am confused on how
they managed to do this.
Here is the output from the commands:
Stephen
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Replied to customer:
Hi Stephen,
The drive paths were configured with the Windows device names instead of
the TSM device names. The device names needed are the ones that show up
in the console under 'TSM Name'.
First delete the existing drive path definitions:
DEL PATH I1RMGT01_SERVER1 DRIVE1 SRCT=SERVER DESTT=DR LIBR=LIBRARY
DEL PATH I1RMGT01_SERVER1 DRIVE2 SRCT=SERVER DESTT=DR LIBR=LIBRARY
DEL PATH I1RMGT01_SERVER1 DRIVE3 SRCT=SERVER DESTT=DR LIBR=LIBRARY
Then define the drive paths with the correct TSM driver device names:
DEF PATH I1RMGT01_SERVER1 DRIVE1 SRCT=SERV DESTT=DR LIBR=LIBRARY
DEVI=mt4.0.0.3 AUTODETECT=YES
DEF PATH I1RMGT01_SERVER1 DRIVE2 SRCT=SERV DESTT=DR LIBR=LIBRARY

George,
Thanks! I had that configured in a script before and just changed it
to the Windows device names instead of the TSM device names. On the
other servers with HP LTO drives, the Windows device names have the
format mtn.n.n.n. On this new server they show up as \\.\Tapen. I
think that is because it's using the hplto.sys driver vs. the
tsmscsi.sys driver. I deleted path and drives and recreated them and
they still show generictape.

I finally was able to get the drives to use the tsmscsi.sys driver! I
was a bit confused because of the name given by the driver, but they are
now all using it. The Windows name now starts with mtn.n.n.n in the
TSM device and I ran a check-in tape and it worked! I think you can now
close this PMR and thank you very much for all your help!

George,
Thanks! I had that configured in a script before and just changed it
to the Windows device names instead of the TSM device names. On the
other servers with HP LTO drives, the Windows device names have the
format mtn.n.n.n. On this new server they show up as \\.\Tapen. I
think that is because it's using the hplto.sys driver vs. the
tsmscsi.sys driver. I deleted path and drives and recreated them and
they still show generictape.

George,
I finally was able to get the drives to use the tsmscsi.sys driver! I
was a bit confused because of the name given by the driver, but they are
now all using it. The Windows name now starts with mtn.n.n.n in the
TSM device and I ran a check-in tape and it worked! I think you can now
close this PMR and thank you very much for all your help!
