NB 6.5 : can't find any media device attached to host?

Not applicable

Hi Folks,


I've got a solaris 5.10 server with a HP tape library  (Model MSL2024 1 LTO-4 Ultrium 1760 SAS Tape Library AK378A) connected to it by SAS.

I'm running Netbackup 6.5 on the solaris server, but from the netbackup java console, I CAN'T find the media device attached to the host through the device Configuration Wizard.

Did I forget to configure something? Is HP tape libray need to be manually added to the netbackup configuration.


When running HP Libray Tape Tool, when I run a hardware scan, the drive is been detected; and get the information out of it:



   1 HP Ultrium 4-SCSI (Address: 0.1.0[st@1,0-/dev/rmt/0])


Main > Drive Information >
The following is identity information for the selected device. You can use commands to select functionality to perform on this device.

Product ID                      : Ultrium 4-SCSI
Drive Technology             : LTO
Mech. Serial Number       : HU194XXXX

Target ID                        : 1
Target LUN                     : 0

As I used to work with NB under windows, I'm not quite familiar under solaris so any help will be welcomed !
