tape device


I have problem detecting my tape drive.

In SAM, once I click on the either Automated Backups or Interactive Backup and Recovery icon, the screen will prompt searching for device and ..... nothing appears in the list.

In the end, I have the kill the SAM process and reboot the system and repeat the detecting steps and again and it works.

I need someone to advise me what is the cause of this.

run "ioscan -f" whether you will see tape device. If yes, try to run tar from command line with device /dev/rmt/0m
