Connect SSL1016 With HP-UX

Hi,

We are planning to connect HP StorageWorks SSL1016 Tape Autoloader with HP rx7620 server in few hours.

I would like to know if I need to turn something on like "Module" or installing some special software to work with the robot.

Also, I'm searching for command that let me display the content of tape drive + robot magazine.

I'm looking for something like robot command in Tru64. Some people mentioned mc command. Can I get more help on this ?

Re: Connect SSL1016 With HP-UX

Hi,

There is those statements that I didn't understand :

D Specifies a Data Transfer (DT) element.

I Specifies an Import/Export (IE) element.

M Specifies a Medium Transport (MT) element.

S Specifies a Storage (ST) element.


Can I get an example ?
