    Yes I know it's not supported stuff, but i'm stuck with that problem and need help.
    We have an hold server 4.2.3 that I need to rebuild to retrieve the information on the tapes ( LTO1 and 2). I did define the library but whe I want to define the library path I always get an error "INVALID PARAMETER - SRCTYPE" and if I remove this parameter I get "ONE OR MORE PARAMETERS ARE MISSING. Does this ring a bell?

    Can anyone help!
    Thank you all

    Give us the commands you are running so we can see what is going on. Also any errors from the actlog.

    and the error is ANR2020E DEFINE PATH: Invalid parameter - SRCTYPE.

    Have you tried to find your device configuration backup file ?
    It maybe defined in your dsmserv.opt and be like devconfig.txt etc.
    This file has the commands to re-create all your tape/library devices

    I cannot do this, because the original hard drives of the server has been wiped. So I'm starting from scratch, clean os an clean TSM.

    Hi,

    looking into documentation it seems that the path-to-library definition uses srct=datamover ..... never used 4.2, so just what I see in the docs ...
    Code:
    Syntax 
    
    
    | 
    | When the destination is adrive  
    
    
    >>-DEFine PATH--source_name--destination_name------------------->
     
    >--SRCType--=--+-DATAMover-+--DESTType--=--DRive---------------->
                   '-SERVer----'
     
    >--LIBRary--=--library_name--DEVice--=--+-device_name-+--------->
                                            '-FILE--------'
     
       .-ONLine--=--Yes-----.
    >--+--------------------+--------------------------------------->
       '-ONLine--=--+-Yes-+-'
                    '-No--'
     
       .-DIRectory--=--current_directory_name-.
    >--+--------------------------------------+--------------------><
       '-DIRectory--=--directory_name---------'
     
     
    
     
    
    
    |Syntax 
    
    
    | 
    | When the destination is alibrary  
    
    
    >>-DEFine PATH--source_name--destination_name------------------->
     
    >--SRCType--=--DATAMover--DESTType--=--LIBRary------------------>
     
                               .-ONLine--=--Yes-----.
    >--DEVice--=--device_name--+--------------------+--------------><
                               '-ONLine--=--+-Yes-+-'
                                            '-No--'

    Hi,

    looked into it again and it seems that in 4.2 the path to the library was defined ONLY for datamovers. For TSM servers the "device" parameter is part of library definition

    Code:
    >>-DEFine LIBRary--library_name--------------------------------->
     
       .-LIBType--=--MANUAL--------------.
    >--+---------------------------------+-------------------------><
       '-LIBType--=--+-MANUAL----------+-'
                     +-SCSI--| A |-----+
                     +-349X--| B |-----+
                     +-EXTernal--| C |-+
                     +-ACSLS--| D |----+
                     '-RSM--| E |------'
     
    A (SCSI)
     
    |--DEVIce--=--device_name---------------------------------------|
     
    B (349X)
     
                       .-,-----------.
                 (1)   V             |
    |--DEVIce--=---------device_name-+------------------------------>
     
       .-SCRATCHCATegory--=--301----.
    >--+----------------------------+------------------------------->
       '-SCRATCHCATegory--=--number-'
     
       .-PRIVATECATegory--=--300----.
    >--+----------------------------+-------------------------------|
       '-PRIVATECATegory--=--number-'
     
    C (EXTERNAL)
     
    |--EXTERNALManager--=--path_name--------------------------------|
     
    D (ACSLS)
     
    |--ACSID--=--number---------------------------------------------|
     
    E  (RSM)
     
    |--MEDIAType--=--media_type-------------------------------------|
     
    
    

    Archaeology .... WOW :)

    Keep us informed :)

    Does the AIX OS see the library and drives ?
    If so, are we able to mount a volume, do a mksysb or tar or dd to the volume?

    Good Luck,
    Sias

    Sorry for the delay,

    The library has been define, it is the path that's not working.
    Thank you.
