ASM20
5001-5002
1-26
7001-7002
6001

Notes:

1. Maximum numbers of drives and storage slots supported
    2 drives 26 slots
2. Barcodes supported. Tivoli Storage Manager requires optical disk labels with part number 1801-437.

3. This library entry/exit port does not have access to the barcode. As a result Tivoli Storage Manager does not support labelling library volumes through the entry/exit port with the barcode option on this library, i.e. "label libvol search=bulk checkin=scratch overwrite=yes labelsource=barcode".

4. Firmware levels used during our validation process
    Library ID : ASM20 --- FW : SN2006304.03
    Drive ID : SONY SMO-F561 --- FW : 1.07

Notes:

1. Maximum numbers of drives and storage slots supported
    1 drive 16 slots
2. Barcodes are supported.

3. Users should use hardware's autoclean option which is supported by the autoloader. Please refer to user manual for the autoclean instruction for IBM autoloader.

4. Device identification and Firmware level
    Library ID : IBM 360716X --- FW : 0016

N/A

Notes:

1. Maximum numbers of drives and storage slots supported
    2 drives 15 slots
2. Barcodes are supported.

3. Auto cleaning is supported. The Clean Slot option designates the right-most fixed cartridge slot for a cleaning cartridge. The address of the cleaning cartridge slot is 15.

4. Plasmon V15 can emulate Exabyte 215,210,430 and Exabyte 480. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager does not support 210 and 480 emulation options.

5. Firmware levels used during our validation process
    Library ID : Exabyte 215 --- FW: 12.1
    Drive ID : Sony SDX-500C --- FW: 0200



Library and drive may require different minimum TSM 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 Version information center.
