Was wondering if the yellow text on Redhat was correct. I was expecting "Medium Changer" or similar?

Thanks.

I don't have a linux box with a medium changer attached, or that model of library. From poking about in the past with a TS3310 on linux, the device_type would be 8. Which is a Medium changer. However, seeing device_type=12 is odd. I think that is the Automation and/or Drive Interface. Without seeing/having a system to play with I'm stabbing at the dark, but make sure whatever device you have set as the medium changer matches up to your /dev/sg31 device.
Grab your scsi ID's and trace back to the library maybe?

I know to get the TS3310's working on RHEL, I needed the IBM LIN_TAPE drivers, or everything came in as /dev/stX

Not sure about Quantum devices directly. Not much help I know.
