IBM TS2900 (3572), Overland Storage NEO 100s, and Dell PowerVault TL1000 Library Configuration Information for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Server

Preventive Service Planning


This document describes configuration information for IBM TS2900 (3572), Overland Storage NEO 100s, and Dell PowerVault TL1000 tape libraries.


  • Library capacity
    1 drive 9 slots
  • Barcode requirements
    Eight character barcodes are required. The last 2 characters must be the media identifier "Lx" where x is the tape cartridge generation. For example, ABC456L5 is for an LTO-5 cartridge. Without a proper barcode label, a volume will appear as "unknown media".
  • IBM device drivers are available at 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
  • For Windows, the Windows IBMTape driver version or later is required.
  • Device identifications and firmware levels used during validation
    (Validated with TSM 5.5.1)
    Library ID : IBM 3572-TL --- Firmware : 0001
    Drive ID : IBM ULT3580-HH3 --- Firmware : 85P0
    (Validated with TSM 5.5.2 on AIX 6.1)
    Library ID : IBM 3572-TL --- Firmware : 0001
    Drive ID : IBM ULT3580-HH4 --- Firmware : 85V2
  • ELEMent=AUTODetect in the DEFINE/UPDATE DRIVE command is supported.
  • The Dell PowerVault TL1000 does not support the IBM LTO Ultrium 3 HH drives

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 information center.
