  1. OpenServer 5.0.6 doesn't find SCSI Tape

    I installed OpenServer 5.0.6 on a new System with EIDE Harddisk, IDE
    CDROM and an HP DATStreamer on Adaptec 2940

    The DAT drive is the only attached SCSI Deviceand is shown correct
    on ID 3 from the Adaptec Bios functions.

    each access to tape gets:

    tape: unable to do 'status' command on '/dev/xct0' : No such device or
    address

    hwconfig -h shows:

    adapter 0x5800-0x58ff 9 - type=alad ha=0 bus=0 id=7 fts=sto
    floppy 0x3f2-0x3f7 6 2 unit=0 type=135ds18
    kbmouse 0x60-0x64 12 - type=Keyboard|PS/2 mouse (wheel)
    id=0x03

    ht=alad
    disk 0x1f0-0x1f7 14 - type=W0 unit=0 cyls=16383 hds=151
    secs=63

    hwconfig .scsi shows:

    Adapter Adapter
    Type Device Number ID LUN Bus
    -------------------------------------------
    wd cd-rom 1 0 0 0
    alad tape 0 3 0 0

    Whats wrong with this configuration ?

    Did you ever run 'mkdev tape'?

    What do these output?

    ls -l /dev/*Stp[0-9]* /dev/*ct[0-9]*
    grep -v "^#" /etc/default/tape
    tape status xStp0


    For reference, here is a sample working 506 box:

    # ls -l /dev/*Stp[0-9]* /dev/*ct[0-9]*
    crw-rw---- 5 root root 155, 8 Jul 19 00:15 /dev/nrStp0
    crw-rw---- 5 root root 155, 8 Jul 19 00:15 /dev/nrct0
    crw-rw---- 5 root root 155, 0 Mar 10 05:06 /dev/rStp0
    crw-rw---- 5 root root 155, 0 Mar 10 05:06 /dev/rct0
    crw-rw---- 3 root root 155,128 Dec 11 2005 /dev/xStp0
    crw-rw---- 3 root root 155,128 Dec 11 2005 /dev/xct0

    # grep -v "^#" /etc/default/tape
    device = /dev/xct0
    curdriver=Stp0

    # tape status xStp0
    status : ready beginning-of-tape
    soft errors : 0
    hard errors : 0
    underruns : 4

    Note that the "real" device is /dev/*Stp0 . /dev/*ct0 is just a convenience
    symlink to one of the possibly several real devices.
    Note that in this ls listing, /dev/xct0 is the same major and minor as
    /dev/xStp0
    So, not exacly a symlink in this case but a real device node that points to
    the same driver address. Same difference.
    And so, that's why on this box plain "tape status" without specifying the
    device also works, since the default is xct0.
    # tape status
    status : ready beginning-of-tape
    soft errors : 0
    hard errors : 0
    underruns : 4

    Note that for all this talk of xct0 and xStp0, you probably want to tell
    your backup software to use /dev/rStp0

    When ever I have gotten this message, i had the wrong permissions...if
    you are not running the tape as root, change the permissions to what
    you are running it as. Just a thought>>

    I reinstalled the system and the tape worked on the first try.
    I can't say what went wrong on the first try, but now it works.

    While you are supposed to be able to share IRQs on a PCI bus
    I see that you have a NIC and the SCSI adaptor at the same IRQ.

    Check to see if the adaptor or the NIC can be changed to some other
    IRQ.
