1. When defining a device class for a DDS-4 drive, use

  • devtype=4MM
  • format=<DRIVE | DDS1 | DDS1C | DDS2 | DDS2C | DDS3 | DDS3C | DDS4 | DDS4C>
    Example:

    DEFine DEVclass devclassname DEVType= 4MM FORMAT= DDS4 .....
    DEFine DEVclass devclassname DEVType= 4MM FORMAT= DDS4C .....

    DDS4 - Specifies that TSM writes data that uses the DDS-4 recording format. This format results in a cartridge capacity of 20 GB when using DDS-4 media.

    DDS4C - Specifies that TSM writes data that uses the DDS-4 recording format with compression. This format results in a cartridge capacity of approximately 40 GB when using DDS-4 media.

2. The format used by the drive for writing data to tape depends on the medium type. For example, the drive will write with the DDS-3 format on DDS-3 tape cartridges.

3. 20 GB native capacity and approximately 40 GB with 2:1 compression
