ACSLS - SL150 cannot be detected by ACSLS after the server is rebooted (Doc ID 1616116.1)

Last updated on MARCH 28, 2017

Applies to:

Sun StorageTek Auto Cartridge Sys Lib SW (ACSLS) - Version 8.2 to 8.3 [Release 8.0]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)

Symptoms

A new tape library SL150 is connected to the server and install_scsi_sol.sh is run for ACSLS 8.2 to detect the tape library.

However, whenever the server is rebooted, ACSLS is not able to detect SL150.  install_scsi_sol.sh has to be run again.


The special character file:

/devices/pci@8,600000/SUNW,qlc@2/fp@0,0/mchanger@w500104f000d19bb5,1:character

is missing after reboot (and re-created after install_scsi_sol.sh)


That same ACSLS server also has a L700 library connected the same way, through the same FC HBA. The issue does not appear with the L700.

Changes

New SL150 library configured with ACSLS
