"...tape library has any operating system..."

Yes, for internal operation and management (call it just firmware).

"...does it has any IP address to transfer data..."

It has an IP for management (via commandview TL) - not for data transfer. Data is transfered via fibre channel or SCSI.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

This tape library has firmware (of course). Some parts are in fact linux, others are vxworks based. Don't worry about this - it's just firmware from your point of view.

Hope this helps!
