QUADStor VTL library on TSM.


has anyone tried setting up QUADStor VTL library with TSM already? I have an issue finding libvolumes in he library.
I have TSM setup on Windows server, and have Scalar i500 library emulated. Library is defined as scsi (also tried vtl). I defined library and 5 Quantum SDLT320 drives in TSM.
Devices and paths are online. i have not created neither device class or stg pools yet. Just trying to check if i can see a volume
in the drive and check them in into the library. I loaded volumes int othe drives on vtl level and tried checking them in but no luck.
Audit, label processes start and end very quickly but no vols are found. Checking runs forever. Maybe some of you tried
that config, eben single tape drive for test. Drives are defined as SDLT. Maybe there is a problem.
Thanks in advance.
Works fine for me. The TSM server and the VTL are on the same server. You could try a mtx -f /dev/tsmscsi/lb[X] to see if you are using the correct device. Replace /dev/tsmscsi/lib[X] with your device
