Interoperable Peripherals

Golden Rules

  • The combination of a tape library and a tape drive is interoperable with the Sun StorageTek Storage Archive Manager (SAM) if:
    o the library robotic interface is interoperable with SAM
    o the tape drive type is interoperable with SAM
    o the tape drive type is interoperable with the tape library (as defined by the library vendor).
  • The combination of a network attached tape library and drive is interoperable with the Sun StorageTek Storage Archive Manager (SAM) if:
    o The network attached robotic interface is interoperable with SAM
    o The tape drive type is interoperable with SAM
    o The tape library is interoperable with the network attached robotic interface
    (as defined by the library and network attached robotic interface vendor).
    o The tape drive type is interoperable with the tape library (as defined by the library vendor).

Definitions

  • FCS - First Customer Ship of a particular release
  • 4.6 (-04) - Indicates the fourth patch release of the 4.6 FCS
  • Planned - Support planned for a future patch of the current SAM-QFS release within a calendar year

Sun StorageTek T10000D
5.3-01
VolSafe
Yes
Supported through both FC or FCoE connections.  Minimum drive firmware 4.06.106.  With 5.3-01, T10000D tapes will show up as 5TB until first labelled.  After that they will show actual capacity (8TB).  T10000D is otherwise fully supported.  Initial capacity will show correctly in a future patch of SAM-QFS. Also, add the following entry to /kernel/drv/st.conf if not already present, and reboot:

st_dadp_settings=
         "STK     T10000C", "crc32c", "stk-crc32c",
         "STK     T10000D", "crc32c", "stk-crc32c"; <--- add this line
