At this moment in time your operating system cannot see the devices. You need the OS to see the devices first. Thats possibly a zoning issue from your SAN You don't seem proficient in Linux. Get some help from a colleague

/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tpautoc

/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tpautoconf -a This will add any device to NetBaclup as seen via scan command from same directory After doing this run tpconfig -d to check devices are configured and then restart NetBackup or restart ltid

Can the OS see the devices? Check with cat /proc/scsi/scsi /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/scan

Re: How to configure new tape library in master server os Linux.

tpconfig is also under /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/

I recommend adding these paths to root profile

/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd

Interesting.  I did not see Marianne's post and Kaio's response when I posted above.  frown

Yes, go back and check zoning like revaroo says.

I took this demand in progress , I found that I need the tape library of drivers who apparently are not installed , after installing the drivers the next steps for the NBU recognize the TL .

I need to reboot the HBA ? NBU ? Master server?

Re: How to configure new tape library in master server os Linux.

Maybe you can download the drivers from the vendor or OEM?

I believe that OEM is the best option , I'm looking all day and do not think anything on .

You may have to create an "account" with Oracle in order to be able to download kits/drivers/documents.

Oracle's site has no driver download, only documentation was necessary to open called on Oracle :/

Re: How to configure new tape library in master server os Linux.

The only drivers that are required are the Linux st and sg drivers. No other drivers from Oracle. You may want to download HBA tools (e.g. SanSurfer for QLogic hba) to see if the hba's can see the devices. At this point in time there is nothing that can be done in NBU. You need OS-level assistance.

Re: How to configure new tape library in master server os Linux.

Can you even see the HBA? do something like this

# lspci|grep -i fibre
04:00.0 Fibre Channel: QLogic Corp. ISP2532-based 8Gb Fibre Channel to PCI Express HBA (rev 02)
04:00.1 Fibre Channel: QLogic Corp. ISP2532-based 8Gb Fibre Channel to PCI Express HBA (rev 02)

if you can see the HBA, you may want to install a pkg called sysfsutils (e.g. sysfsutils-2.1.0-7.el6.x86_64) and use systool to troubleshoot further

# systool -c fc_host -v (to see the HBA details)

# systool -c fc_transport -v (to see the target details)
