We are running 7.3-1 with some SDLT MSL Tape libraries and are having
trouble reading DLT IV tapes, the specs say this is doable... is anyone else
having issues.... we are not getting read errors, they just will not mount
and read.....

What commands are you using (cut-and-paste from your terminal program,
if possible)?

Can you post the text of any messages?

What does the DCL command "SHOW DEVICE" say about the drives?

What does the Alpha console command "SHOW DEVICE" say about the drives?

Anything else you can tell us?

D.J.D.

Are you using the latest firmware on the drive? It is rather hard to
find, but you need the tape tools, and you can download a VMS agent, or
a PC agent, and drag the firmware down from the web then blow it to the
drive.
