We are connecting an Overland REO 4000 unit which can emulate HP LTO2
drives & Overland NEO libraries, to a NW65Sp5 server, the FC adapter is
(I think) QL2340. Direct connection (no SAN).

ArcServe 11.1SP1 with post-SP1 patches. No options installed.

Driver configured in Arcserve for NWPA (not FC).

NWTAPE and NWASPI not in the search path.

QL2X00 driver being loaded with the /LUNS switch. Using most current HAM
from QL website.

LIST DEVICES shows the unbound objects appropriately.

ASTART identifies the HP Ultrium drive(s) (and library if configured)
correctly during the CANWPABD scanning process.

PROBLEM: When TAPESVR loads, it only seems to be able to detect the
device on LUN0. It ignores all others. If, for example, you have a
single drive on LUN0 then it works OK. If you configure a 2nd drive on
LUN1 then it will be registered when CANWPABD runs but TAPESVR will not
see it.

If, for example, you configure a single drive on LUN1 (nothing on LUN0),
then CANWPABD registers the device but TAPESVR will not find any valid

If, for example, a library (LUN0) was configured with 4 drives
(LUN1/2/3/4) then again, only the library device can be seen by TAPESVR,
the 4 drives are registered by CANWPABD but not seen; TAPESVR can't find
any valid devices.

We have used 2 different server boxes and 2 different REO units (same
model, different firmware) and have the same problem.

Unfortunately right now I have not been able to swap to QL card to see
if that helped. Hopefully I can try that on Friday.

Have tried all kinds of different parms on the QL2x00 load line, but
nothing helps.

Have tried the QL2300.HAM with NW65SP5 insted of QL2x00, no difference.

To do some debugging, tried the following:
- quit arcserve
- after loading ql2x00, load NWASPI
- load SCSISCAN in the CA utilitites

SCSISCAN also seems to have trouble picking up the devices that are not
on LUN0, i.e. it only sees what is on LUN0. But again, LIST DEVICES
reports them normally.

This has been punishing me for a couple of days. Any ideas before I
proceed with the process of elimination? Thanks!
