Goal

HPE LTO-5, LTO-6, and LTO-7 library tape drives support drive diagnostics via the Ethernet interface using the Internet Diagnostics Tool Interface (iDTI) protocol.

L&TT 4.14 and newer releases support this feature with the Ethernet mode.

With Ethernet mode,most diagnostics can be performed from a laptop (with L&TT installed) that is connected to the drive or library with an Ethernet cable.

This saves installing L&TT on a specific server and connecting to the drive or library with SCSI cables.
