Description Keith Orsak 2007-03-30 20:54:35 UTC
Description of problem:
After setting up a test plan for hts the SAS tape drive does not show up in 
the test plan.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): R32

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install HTS.
2. Power down server.
3. Plug in a SAS tape drive into the server ( I used a HP Ultrium LTO 448 SAS )
4. Turn on the tape drive and insert a tape.
5. Turn the server back on and boot to RHEL 5.
6. Open up a terminal and type:
->hts server start
->hts plan
->hts print --report plan
Actual results:
The tape drive did not show up in the list of devices to test in the test plan.

Expected results:
I expected the tape drive to show up.

Additional info:
I was testing on a DL380 G5 server with RHEL 5 X86_64 installed.  I also tried 
to use the "lshal | grep info.udi" command to find the udi but could not 
determine the correct udi.

please run "hal-device > hal.log", and attach the file "hal.log" here, please
also attach following three files here:
  1) "/etc/sysconfig/hwconf"
  2) "/var/log/dmesg"
  3) "/var/hts/plan.xml"

Comment 6 YangKun 2007-04-25 07:13:34 UTC
Hi Keith,

I checked the attached 4 files. Both kudzu and HAL can not find any TAPE device.
And I can not find it in dmesg neither. This is strange.

Could you please provide more info as following:
  1) make sure the SAS tape drive is well connected before the system boots;
  2) boot the system, after the system booted, run following commands as root:
      a) # echo ^M | sysreport
      b) # tree /proc/ > /root/proc-tree.log
      c) # tree /sys/ > /root/sys-tree.log
  3) attach three files: "/root/*.tar.bz2" and "/root/proc-tree.log" and
"/root/sys-tree.log" here.

Hi Keith,

I didn't see any tape-related device driver been loaded into kernel.

Can you confirm if this SAS tape drive(HP Ultrium LTO 448 SAS) works well under
RHEL5 ?  Is there a proper device name for this tape drive under "/dev/"
directory ? If yes, could you manually run following command to verify if it works:
    #  mt -f /dev/DEVICE_NAME rewind


Comment 11 Keith Orsak 2007-04-27 21:18:14 UTC
The HBA I used to plug the tape drive into the server did not have a driver 
installed.  I used a Sputnik SAS card instead and it worked fine.

That's great. 

Closing this bug now.
