SCSI tape device configuration?

» close window

The Question is:

Why does the TZ-87 tape drive disappear after booting the OS?
What are the possible solutions to this problem?

The Answer is :

  The list of errors that can potentially arise within a SCSI
  hardware configuration is arguably an open-ended set.
  Assuming you have not disabled the device autoconfiguration
  normally performed during the OpenVMS bootstrap, please contact
  your hardware support organization for assistance with the TZ87,
  as it appears that you have a SCSI device error or a SCSI bus
  configuration error.  Additional details on the particular SCSI
  hardware connection(s), controller(s), and the contents of the
  SCSI bus will be of all interest, as well.  As will the total
  SCSI bus length, enclosures, bus termination, assigned unit
  numbers, firmware revisions, and other related details.
  Please also apply the available ECO kits for OpenVMS Alpha, and
  please seriously consider an upgrade to a more recent version.
