                Do you have the latest tape configuration files on your NetApp? Run a “storage show tape supported” on the filer and check. I ran a quick check on mine and don’t see any LTO5 drives listed as supported (OnTap


                Check NOW for updated “tape_config” files. (NOW seems to be broken for me right now.) You can copy the new tape_config files onto the filer and it should pick them up. You may have to rescan your tape buses to recognize them.





I have some new LTO5 drives and 2 of 4 of my netapps won’t show the drive serial numbers.  I have checked switch ports, os levels, hba model and firmware.  They are all exactly the same.  I am connected to a brocade switch and have the drives zoned properly.  The netapps see the drives but if I run storage show tape on the nas it has a generic serial number instead of the serial number of the drive.  This is preventing me adding these new drives.  Has anyone seen this?
