OK, I shall try reducing timeouts to confirm whether the system is completely hung but probably won't be able to before the New Year.

So the tape device is local or accessed through iscsi? Originally open-iscsi installed to access an HP D2D, so access to it is via /dev/st0, a psuedo tape device, to actually write data & /dev/ sg3 in this instance to 'control' the autoloader functions of the D2D. For various reasons they wanted a real local tape drive on the box as well. When that was installed it became /dev/st0 and the device used by open-iscsi had chnaged to /dev/st1, however no operations would work anymore i.e. normally to write data to the D2D you would run mtx -f /dev/sg3 load 2 This loads a 'slot' on the D2D which is then accessible via /dev/st0 so tar cvf /dev/st0 <some stuff> would write data to the D2D. After installing the new local tape drive the device names reported by open-iscsi had changed, but the same operations using the new tape device, /dev/st1, would not work correctly. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "open-iscsi" group.
