ACSLS not able to see or configure newly added tape drives in a SL3000 (Doc ID 2276377.1)

Last updated on JUNE 13, 2017

Applies to:

Sun StorageTek Auto Cartridge Sys Lib SW (ACSLS) - Version 8.0 to 8.4 [Release 8.0]
Sun StorageTek SL3000 Modular Library System - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Customer installed four new T10KD tape drives in a new SL3000 drive panel.

Customer ran 'config acs 0' in ACSLS and it looks like the new drives were not presented to ACSLS by the LMU.
ACSLS is not able to see nor configure these tape drives even though they can be seen though SLConsole.

When asked to verify the drive details on the SLConsole, the customer said that the new drives did not have any associated HLI address,
as compared to the old drives.

Changes

 Customer added a new tape drive panel assembly and four new tape drives to their existing eight tape drives in their SL3000 tape library.
