<P>I have a question regarding 8mm tape drives:</P>
<P>We have a Sun Ultra 1 (node X), with an EXB-8505 drive attached. When we try to read a tape written on an IBM-8505 (SEG-Y format), the read fails. However, we have another Ultra 1 (node Y), with an EXB-8500 which is able to read the tape.</P>
<P>Moving the EXB-8500 to X still results in a read failure. The st.conf is exactly the same on each machine as I've copied it from Y to X. </P>
<P>We believe the SCSI card is OK because we can tar to (and from) both tape drives&nbsp;on X.</P>
<P>Both machines are running Solaris 2.6 and Y has only 5 patches not appearing on X:</P>
<DIR>
<P>105181-10: A kernel security revision</P>
<P>105181-19: A kernel security revision </P>
<P>105363-16: Elite 3D patch</P>
<P>105633-46: openwindows 3.6 Xsun patch</P>
<P>105795-05: hme patch. </P></DIR>
<P>Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. I will summerise.</P>
<P>Thanks, Simon</P></FONT></DIV></div><br clear=all><hr>Get your FREE download of MSN Explorer at <a href='http://go.msn.com/bql/hmtag_itl_EN.asp'>http://explorer.msn.com</a><br></html>
