Dear All,

I'm trying to work out what extra info block should be added to
/var/sysgen/master.d/scsi
in order to support a QUANTUM DLT VS160 (badged as a TANDBERG drive).
Anyone know? I can't
see any usefully similar data block in the scsi file to copy & modify.

The unit is attached to an Origin200, running a pretty recent 6.5.x.
Here's the enquiry info:

IRIS# scsicontrol -v /dev/scsi/sc3d2l0
/dev/scsi/sc3d2l0: Supported vital product pages: c1 c0 83 80 0
Serial #: PHJ5B00057

IRIS# scsicontrol -i /dev/scsi/sc3d2l0
/dev/scsi/sc3d2l0: Tape QUANTUM DLT VS160 2500
ANSI vers 2, ISO ver: 0, ECMA ver: 0; supports: 16bit synch linkedcmds
Device is ready

IRIS# scsicontrol -I /dev/scsi/sc3d2l0
/dev/scsi/sc3d2l0: Tape QUANTUM DLT VS160 2500

Any ideas? Btw, this query is already on the Nekochan forum, posted by
Brian, who
I'm helping out.

Cheers!
