1. Firmware level during validation:
    • Library: 1.06
    • Drives 1.00 (GY-2120 DTF Drive)
    • PetaSite Controller (PSC) 1.21 (DZC-8400 Controller on NT)

2. Currently, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager supports the SCSI control of PSC only. The API control through network is not supported.

3. The above figure shows the element addresses of the DMS-8400 (PetaSite) configured with one basic console, one Drive Console, and one Cassette Console. This configuration consists of 4 drives, 8 I/O ports, and a maximum of 310 slots. As more consoles are added, element addresses will grow accordingly.

Library and drive may require different minimum Tivoli Storage Manager levels. Therefore, ensure that both library and drive hardware are supported. See " Supported Devices for AIX, HP-UX, Solaris and Windows" or " Supported Devices for Linux" for minimum supported version levels and platforms for these devices.

More information regarding device configuration is available in the Tivoli Storage Manager Administrator's Guide, which can be found in the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager information center.
