Tape drive installation problem, Input/output error.
I have got fixed internal Tape drive ( Hp Storage works DAT 72 Digital Data Storage) on Hp Server ( Hp proliant ML570) on SCSI card having operating system redhat 4.
Its getting detected in hardware browser of the server
Manufacturer - Unkown
Driver - none or builtin
Device - /dev/st0
I have run the command as a root after inserting the tape
mt -f /dev/st0 status its giving /dev/st0: Input/output error
I have downloaded the drivers from the Hp site and I have run them in the run.
What could be the problem whether the drivers are not installed properly or whether the tape drive is not installed properly.
