Notes:

1. HP StorageWorks VLS 6000, VLS 9x00, VLS 300 EVA Gateway, and VLS 12x00 EVA Gateway can emulate HP ESL E-Series library, HP MSL 6000 library, and HP 1/8 autoloader. For virtual drive emulation, HP VLS 6000 can emulate HP Ultrium 1-SCSI, HP Ultrium 2-SCSI, HP Ultrium 3-SCSI, HP Ultrium 4-SCSI (see note 3), DLT 7000, DLT 8000, and SDLT 320 drives.

2. The VTL can also be configured as "HP VLS" for medium changer. When the medium changer is "HP VLS", TSM version 5.5.2 or later is required.

3. HP Ultrium 4-SCSI drive emulation is supported with the following TSM versions:
    • TSM 5.4.5 and later maintenance levels and patches
    • TSM 5.5.3 and later maintenance levels and patches
    • TSM 6.1 and later version releases

4. Library capacities
    1x8 autoloader - 1 drive 8 slots
    ESL E-Series - 24 drives 712 slots
    MSL6000 Series - 4 drives 60 slots

5. Barcodes are supported.

6. ELEMENT=AUTODETECT in the DEFINE/UPDATE DRIVE command is supported.

7. Because there is no physical entry/exit port, the CHECKIN LIBVOLUME command with SEARCH=BULK and the CHECKOUT LIBVOLUME command with REMOVE=BULK are not supported.

8. Device identifications and firmware levels used during validation
    HP 1x8 Autoloader Emulation
    Library ID : HP 1x8 autoloader --- Firmware : 1.20
    Drive ID : QUANTUM SDLT320 --- Firmware : G38W
    HP ESL E-Series Emulation
    Library ID : HP ESL E-Series --- Firmware : 2.00
    Drive ID : HP Ultrium 2-SCSI --- Firmware : R138
    HP MSL 6000 Emulation
    Library ID : HP MSL6000 Series --- Firmware : 0430
    Drive ID : HP Ultrium 3-SCSI --- Firmware : R138
    HP VLS (validated with TSM 5.5.2)
    Library ID : HP VLS --- Firmware : 1.00
    Drive ID : HP Ultrium 3-SCSI --- Firmware : R210
    HP VLS (validated with TSM 5.4.5)
    Library ID : ThinStor AutoLdr --- Firmware : T133
    Drive ID : HP Ultrium 4-SCSI --- Firmware : R500
    HP VLS (validated with TSM 5.5.3)
    Library ID : ThinStor AutoLdr --- Firmware : T133
    Drive ID : HP Ultrium 4-SCSI --- Firmware : R500

9. The HP StorageWorks 6000 VLS software version used for the validation is 1.0.8.

10. The firmware version for HP VLS300 EVA Gateway is 1.1.0.

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.
