We did this.
One thing is the lto-3 drives will only be able to read your lto-1 media, but 
not write to it.  It could cost quite a bit to do a complete converstion over.

Yes.  See your IBM Business Partner for the details and costs.

Hi Sir,

Please help me regarding my inquiries.
Is it possible to upgrade IBM 3584 with existing 6 LTO-1 tape drives

What consideration may required?

We have AIX 5.1 (p610 server) with TSM 5.1 server. Tape Library: IBM

Thanks for your help in advance.
