I notice that you are running 5.3.3.0.
A quick look at the interim fixes for 5.3.3.1-5.3.3.3 in the
README.DEVICES showed IC49207 TSM FAILS TO DEFINE THE LIBRARY PATH IN A
SPECTRA LOGIC 2K.
I appreciate that you mention that you are using a T50, therefore it's
not an exact match.

Just a thought.

Subject: [SPAM: 9.500] [ADSM-L] Solaris library configuration

We are trying to configure TSM server 5.3.3.0 on a Sun Solaris 10, using
a
Spectra Logic T50 tape library with Qlogic SG-XPCI1FC-QF2 HBA and two
IBM drives.

Following the instructions in "Implementing IBM Tape in Unix Systems",
we modified the Qlogic adapter configuration file /kernel/drv/qlc.conf
to add persistent bindings for the SCSI IDs:
hba1-SCSI-target-id-8-fibre-channel-name="21110090a5402218";
hba1-SCSI-target-id-9-fibre-channel-name="21130090a5402218";

Then we edited /kernel/drv/IBMtape.conf to take out
all the boilerplate definitions and add the following:
name="IBMtape" class="scsi" target=8 lun=0
name="IBMtape" class="scsi" target=8 lun=1
name="IBMtape" class="scsi" target=9 lun=0
name="IBMtape" class="scsi" target=9 lun=1

We checked /kernel/drv/st.conf and found targets 8 and 9 were
already commented out.  Then we rebooted, and had a try at
creating a library using the ISC Administration Center.
It failed with the following error:

 The server encountered an I/O error while processing the request.

 For more information, see the activity log in the server's properties
notebook.
 Additional information from the server:

  ANR8418E DEFINE PATH: An I/O error occurred while accessing library
GWLIB.

The activity log showed this:

We tried using /dev/rmt/1lb instead of
/devices/pseudo/[email protected]:ibmcontrol but it did no good.

What are we doing wrong?
