Hi, We have a Sun Ultra 45 system with 10.0 OS.
Trying to get an LTO-3 tapedrive with a LSI22320-S host adapter configured.
Doing a boot -- -r and edit the st.conf file by adding "tape-config-list"
I can see the drive doing a "mt -f /dev/rmt/0 status"
But doing dd read/write commands we are not getting anything near the throughput that it saids in the specs ..ie..using an LTO3 drive with an LTO3 media we should be need 80Mbytes a sec. We are getting about 37Mbytes.What device are you writing to? Is your data compessible and are you compressing? My assumption is that 80MB/s is only with compression. I'm not sure if the '0' device compresses. You probably want to use the '0cbn' device.
I can't seem to find a driver for that card, and wonder does someone know a good source for solaris drivers.If you can see the tape at all, you must have a working driver.

thanks for your time, when I first hooked up I would do a boot -- -r at ok prompt or do a drvconfig then tapes to see the drive. Either way it would see the drive but the mt -f /dev/rmt/0 status would say "unconfigured drive" and I forget what else off the top of my head.
