Would like to recycle an Ultrium 960 to another server

I am having no success loading this device to the server. It it is an external drive, and is not being recognized by the server. I'm really stumped.

if the server doesn't recognize it, you need to load the proper drivers
in the startup.ncf. let's see your old and new ones....

Re: Would like to recycle an Ultrium 960 to another server

I don't know if I have loaded the correct nlm or not. The one I found on HP's website is cp008487.nlm

Here are the startup.ncf files for each server. They look identical so I am puzzled as to why the Ultrium 960 isn't recognized.

Here are the details. I would like to move the Ultrium 960 from an HP Proliant DL 360 to an HP Proliant DL 380. Both are running Netware 6.5 sp 6. Here is the startup.ncf file from the DL 360

LOAD ACPIDRV.PSM
####END PSM DRIVERS####
LOAD CPQSHD.CDM
LOAD IDE.CDM
LOAD NWTAPE.CDM
####END CDM DRIVERS####
LOAD IDEATA.HAM SLOT=10013
LOAD CPQRAID.HAM SLOT=10017
#LOAD LSIMPTNW.HAM SLOT=1
LOAD ADPU320.HAM SLOT=1
####END HAM DRIVERS####

Startup.NCF of the DL 380

LOAD ACPIDRV.PSM
####END PSM DRIVERS####
LOAD CPQSHD.CDM
LOAD IDECD.CDM
#LOAD NWTAPE.CDM
####END CDM DRIVERS####
LOAD IDEATA.HAM SLOT=10008
LOAD CPQRAID.HAM SLOT=10015
LOAD LSIMPTNW.HAM SLOT=201
LOAD LSIMPTNW.HAM SLOT=202
####END HAM DRIVERS####

Well they aren't identical. Not enough coffee today.

Re: Would like to recycle an Ultrium 960 to another server


yeah, they're not the same. you need to determine what the ultrium
driver is and load that on the second server.

you can do a "server -ns -na" and that will load up without the startup
or autoexec running. you can then enter the commands manually to
figure out what the proper commands and comman-line options are....

Re: Would like to recycle an Ultrium 960 to another server

Thanks, but I think I have been going at this the wrong way. After running some google searches the 960 should work with backup exec 9.1. why shouldn't i be able to connect the 960 unit to the server and have it be recognized?

You need to rename nwtape.cdm so that it doesn't EVER load.

There's a bug in the SP7 & SP8 version that leaves the device in an unusable
state when it is unloaded (which is what BackupExec does when it goes to
load becdm.cdm and it's own drivers).
