T10000D - How to Change Large File Accelerator (LFA) Settings On T10000D Tape Drives using VOP (Doc ID 1662089.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 19, 2019

Applies to:

StorageTek T10000D Tape Drive - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

The (Large File Accelerator (LFA) feature keeps the drive streaming between large files (> 200MB) up to some capacity loss limit which can be set for 2% or 10%" The default for this feature is Enabled and the Default limit is 2%.

VOP 2.4.2 (and any VOP version below 2.4.2) incorrectly reports the LFA threshold in the Configure Drive Parameters panel. The View Drive Parameters panel correctly reports 2%.

A change will be made to future VOP version 2.4.3 so that it does not always default to 10% in the Configuration menu item even though the drive is actually running at 2%.

Goal

How to change the LFA ( Large File Accelerator) settings of the T10000D drive using VOP (Virtual Op Panel) to persist through an IPL.
