Have a customer who is accessing IBM LTO-6 drives in SL8500 from a AIX server.
They want to have fail over path when accessing the IBM LTO-6 drives from the AIX server.
Currently, the driver they have on the AIX server does not permit them to do so. Hence, they want Oracle to provide an IBM LTO-6 driver on AIX that has fail-over capability.
We have informed the customer to get the drivers from "https://www-945.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/" or to contact IBM which they did. However, the response they got from IBM was " It is for Oracle to provide drivers ".
