Re: AUTOLOADER AND OMNIBACK II VER.3.10

Document A4918893 contains the information for configuring an AutoLoader:
http://us-support.external.hp.com/cki/bin/doc.pl

The steps that still are required:
1) Add driver line to /stand/system
i.e. driver spt
2) Create new kernel
3) Create robotics device file

Re: AUTOLOADER AND OMNIBACK II VER.3.10

you might also want to use /opt/omni/lbin/uma to test the robotics device before you start using omniback.

i.e

./uma -ioctl /dev/robotic_device_file

>> stat D
Minimum effort maximum output!

Re: AUTOLOADER AND OMNIBACK II VER.3.10

See appendix B. of the Omniback II version 3.1 Installation and Licensing guide. You can view or download the manual (which is in
PDF format) from the website ...

www.openview.hp.com

->Library ->product Manuals

Within Appendix B is the section entitled
"SCSI Pass-Through Driver Configuration"
which should address your needs.
