Drive Information



Fujitsu M8100A2

1. Device type - ECARTridge

2. Supported TSM formats

    M8100 and M8100C

    DEFine DEVclass devclassname DEVType=ECARTridge FORMAT= M8100 .....
    DEFine DEVclass devclassname DEVType=ECARTridge FORMAT= M8100C .....

    M8100 - Specifies that TSM writes data that uses the M8100 recording format. This format results in a cartridge capacity of 10GB when using 10GB 3590 cartridges.

    M8100C - Specifies that TSM writes data that uses the M8100 recording format with compression ratio of 3:1 . This format results in a cartridge capacity of 30GB when using 10GB 3590 cartridges.

3. 10GB native capacity and approximately 30GB with 3:1 compression.

4. Supported media - 3590

5. Device identification and firmware level
    Device ID : FUJITSU M8100A2
    Firmware : 4R20




Sony GY-8240

1. Device type - DTF

2. Supported TSM formats
    DTF and DTFC

    DEFine DEVclass devclassname DEVType=DTF FORMAT= DTF2 .....
    DEFine DEVclass devclassname DEVType=DTF FORMAT= DTF2C .....

    DTF2 - Specifies that TSM writes data that uses the DTF2 recording format. This format results in a cartridge capacity of 200GB when using 200GWL media and 60GB when using 60GWS media.

    DTF2C - Specifies that TSM writes data that uses the DTF2 recording format with compression. This format results in a cartridge capacity of 400GB when using 200GWL media and 120GB when using 60GWS media.

3. Backward compatibility
    Write - DTF2/DTF2C
    Read - DTF/DTFC/DTF2/DTF2C

4. Device identification and firmware level used during validation process
    Drive ID : SONY GY-8240
    Firmware : 1.21

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.
