Re: Anyone Have W2K TSM 5.1.8 (or others) FC attached to 3590[E11 ]?
Our Win2K TSM was 18.104.22.168; our library is a 3494 with 3590-E1A tape drives.
Drives are each direct attached via FC (although the protocol is still
So it's not exactly the same, but close.
(I don't think the fact that our 3590's are in a library make a difference;
I think it's the same for all 3590's. The library has its own driver. )
Under TSM 5.1.x, you use the TSM device driver for 3590's.

You don't even need to install or start the TSM SCSI driver.
Hope that helps

Looking to find out if anyone has a Windows TSM server fiber channel
attached to a 3590-E11[x] tape drive/autoloader. Does TSM support this
device using the TSM device driver? Anyone share experiences or advice?
