Notes:

1. Library capacity
    • NEC T30A - 2 drives 30 slots
    • NEC T60A - 4 drives 60 slots
2. Barcodes with media identifier suffix Lx are required. Barcode label length must be set to 8. This can be set through Tape Library Remote Manager -> Configure Library -> Physical.

3. Device identifications and firmware levels used during validation
    Validated with TSM 6.2.3 and TSM 6.3.0
    Library ID : NEC LL-2B01 --- Firmware : 0001
    Drive ID : IBM ULTRIUM-HH4 --- Firmware : B5Q1 (FC)
    Drive ID : IBM ULTRIUM-HH5 --- Firmware : B5Q1 (FC)
    Drive ID : IBM ULTRIUM-HH3 --- Firmware : B5Q1 (SAS)
    Drive ID : IBM ULTRIUM-HH4 --- Firmware : B5Q1 (SAS)
    Drive ID : IBM ULTRIUM-HH5 --- Firmware : B5Q1 (SAS)

    Validated with TSM 6.3.5 and TSM 7.1.0
    Library ID : NEC LL-2B01 --- Firmware : 0004
    Drive ID : IBM ULTRIUM-HH4 --- Firmware : C5X1 (FC)
    Drive ID : IBM ULTRIUM-HH5 --- Firmware : C5X1 (FC)
    Drive ID : IBM ULTRIUM-HH6 --- Firmware : D8E9 (FC)
    Drive ID : IBM ULTRIUM-HH4 --- Firmware : C5X1 (SAS)
    Drive ID : IBM ULTRIUM-HH5 --- Firmware : C5X1 (SAS)
    Drive ID : IBM ULTRIUM-HH6 --- Firmware : D8E9 (SAS)

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

5. The T30A/T60A is available with the following half height IBM Ultrium drives:
6. The IBM device driver is required for IBM Ultrium drives. 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 operating system for the device driver

7. For SAS interface, see Technote 1396706 for information on platforms on which SAS devices are supported.



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.
