Hi All,

Could any one please help me to find "LTO3 & LTO4 Tape Drive firmware version from CLI in Netbackup" (other than looking in to SL console)

IBM Tape Drives attached to Solaris 10 server.

Regards,

Chandrasekar

Or use scan, firmware rev is that 3rd column inside the ""'s

(like tpautoconf command is in /usr/openv/volmgr/bin)

 

scan -tape | grep -i inquiry

Inquiry    : "IBM     ULT3580-TD4     A239"
Inquiry    : "IBM     ULT3580-TD3     93G6"
Inquiry    : "IBM     ULT3580-TD3     93G6"

tpautoconf -t on a media server with access to all tape drives.
(Command is in /usr/openv/volmgr/bin)

It will return something like this:

 

TPAC60 IBM     ULTRIUM-TD2     53Y2 1110295062 2 0 0 0 Tape0 - - 
TPAC60 IBM     ULTRIUM-TD2     53Y2 1110302222 2 0 1 0 Tape1 - - 
......
 
Column 3 is the firmware version.
