  1. Netbackup 6.0 Storage Unit: Invalid Robot Type


    Can someone help in trying to find out why when I configure the tapes drives
    and robots on Solaris 10 box, the storage unit is not added. When I add
    it manually and try to do a inventory I get Robot Type Invalid (12). I have
    a STK L700 connected via SAN Fabric to a Sun V480 with dual ported qlogic
    cards. I'm only using on of the port on the card and have switched between
    both with the same result. I can see the robot via sgscan, and can move
    the robot with robtest. I can also, see a mounted tape via mt, but vmupdate
    -rt hcart3 returns the error: Robot Type Invalid (12). Can someone point
    me in the right direction.

    Try tpconfig command to add a robot control host, usually the master, but
    depends how big your environment is. Lots of masters and lots and lots of
    medias? Or just one master with a handful of medias?
