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

5. The libraries are supported with any LTO drives that are supported by Tivoli Storage Manager Server. The library and drive combination must be supported by the hardware vendor.

6. 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 following information centers. .
