Hi Gina

First you may want to check that you have the newest Atape and atldd
installed on your AIX system.
Get the drivers from here :

You may also want to have a look at this book for the procedure of how to
set up the 3494 on an AIX system.:

Especially Part 5 in this manual should be what you are looking for.

On the 3494 itself you will have to define which hosts are allowed to talk to 
the library controller
over the control LAN (asuming you are using a LAN connection to control the 
If the subnet of the controlling host has changed, you'll most likely have to 
make some
changes to the network configuration on the OS/2 machine inside the library to 
the changes in the network..
Basically, the OS/2 library controller must be able to talk to the controlling 
AIX over the LAN
and the AIX must be defined in the OS/2 library controller as being allowed to 
control the library.
