But the changer doesn't work by device names, it works by device IDs. This is the message I get when the changer loads: ch0: type #1 (mt): 0x0+1 [medium transport] ch0: type #2 (st): 0x3e8+20 [storage] ch0: type #3 (ie): 0xa+0 [import/export] ch0: type #4 (dt): 0x1f4+2 [data transfer] ch0: dt 0x1f4: ID 9, LUN 0, Huh? device not found! ch0: dt 0x1f5: ID 10, LUN 0, Huh? device not found! ch0: INITIALIZE ELEMENT STATUS, may take some time ... ch0: ... finished ch 21:0:0:0: Attached scsi changer ch0 ch 21:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg2 type 8 As you can see, it's looking for specific SCSI IDs, probably on the same SCSI bus, to try to find the tape devices. -Nick --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "open-iscsi" group.
