Symptoms

FE was onsite to upgrade HP LTO drive FW but HP LTT did not detect Tape Drives attached to Solaris host.

"tload" utility for Solaris was also unable to detect the drives.

Tape Drives were detected correctly at OS level but /dev/rmt/* links were missing.

Also the "iostat -En" command did not list any tape drives.

Changes

Oracle Secure Backup (OSB) is installed & configured in Solaris.
