Since you are running HP you CAN configure them independently, at least
at the driver level.
=20
I assume you are using IBMs driver (atdd) which contains both the tape
driver and the medium changer.
=20
IBM published a REDBOOK on their Gen 2 product and how to configure it
with various OS's and applications.

This should answer your questions.  If not, please let me know.

NBU 3.4.1 Master:HP-UX 11i three-way service guard cluster Library:ADIC
scalar10k IBM Ultrium drives:[email protected], [email protected] same cabinet. We have
just benchmarked our new LTO-2 drives and they are NO FASTER than the
LTO-1 drives. Are there separate tuneables for the new drives we are not
looking at?  Buffer settings, something undocumented perhaps?  We have a
3GB (bound) FC ethernet connection on the media server so I don't think
it's a network bottleneck, disk is XP-512 (rebadged Hitachi) screaming
fast disk.  Tested same class on each type of drive, identical runtimes.
??? Thank you experts.
