Notes:

1. Library capacity
    18 drives 404 slots

2. Barcodes are supported.

3. Quantum Scalar i500 supports Quantum Encryption Key Manager (Q-EKM) for HP LTO-4 encryption key management. Quantum EKM is supported with Tivoli Storage Manager Server version 6.1.3 and later. To allow Quantum EKM to manage encryption keys, set the DRIVEEncryption option for DEVCLASS to ALLOW.

4. Tivoli Storage Manager server does not support Quantum i500's Fibre Channel I/O blade with IBM Ultrium 5 and IBM Ultrium 6 drives, in append-only mode. If you have a Fibre Channel I/O blade in your Quantum i500 library, you can bypass the Fibre Channel I/O blade by connecting the tape drives directly to your Fibre Channel SAN switch. Alternatively, you can disable append-only mode in the Tivoli Storage Manager server by issuing the following Tivoli Storage Manager server command:
    SETOPT CHECKTAPEPOS TSMonly

    Dell PowerVault ML6000
    Same as ADIC Scalar i500

6. ELEMent=AUTODetect in the DEFINE/UPDATE DRIVE command is supported.

7. Available drives
    Quantum no longer ships the following drive with Quantum Scalar i500

8. For Quantum Scalar i500, fimware revision 585G or later is required for Ultrium 5 WORM media.



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 more support information including minimum supported version levels and supported platforms.

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.
