Drive Information



IBM 3590H

1. Device type - 3590

2. Supported formats 3590B, 3590C, 3590E-B, 3590E-C, 3590H-B and 3590H-C

3. New Formats
    3590H-B and 3590H-C formats

    DEFine DEVclass devclassname DEVType=3590 FORMAT= 3590H-B .....
    DEFine DEVclass devclassname DEVType=3590 FORMAT= 3590H-C .....

    3590H-B
    Specifies that IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Server writes data using the IBM 3590H recording format for 3590 tapes, without compression. This format results in a cartridge capacity of 30GB using Magstar 3590 High Performance Cartridge Tape

    3590H-C
    Specifies that IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Server writes data using the IBM 3590H recording format for 3590 tapes, with compression. This format results in a cartridge capacity of approximately 90GB using Magstar 3590 High Performance Cartridge Tape. This tape format, however, uses the tape drive hardware compression feature, so the actual capacity may be greater, depending on the effectiveness of compression and data content.

4. Native capacity is 30 GB and approximately 90 GB with data compression assuming a data compression ratio of 3:1.

5. The IBM device driver is required and can be downloaded from IBM Fix Central. Choose the following options from the drop-down menus.
  • Product Group -> System Storage
  • System Storage -> Tape systems
  • Tape systems -> Tape drivers and software
  • Tape drivers and software -> Tape device drivers
  • Platform -> select the platform for the device driver that you are looking for

6. Device identification and firmware level used during validation process
  • Device ID : IBM 03590H11
  • Firmware : F23E
