Installing the drive

This section contains information on installing the tape drive in IBM servers and in other computers.

Installing the drive in IBM servers

The IBM 100/200 GB HH LTO Internal Tape Drive can be installed in IBM xSeries 200, 220, 230, 240, 340 as well as IBM Netfinity® 4500R, 5100, 5600, 7100, and 7600. It can also be installed externally via a 3551001, or a 3510020, to IBM xSeries 330 or Netfinity 6000R or 8500R. Refer to the documentation that comes with the server for instructions on installing the tape drive.

General installation instructions

Follow these steps to install the tape drive in other computers.

Step 1. Selecting a SCSI ID

Each device on a SCSI bus must have a unique SCSI ID. You can select a SCSI ID from 0 to 6 for the tape drive. The SCSI ID must be supported by your SCSI adapter. Refer to your SCSI adapter documentation for the range and relative priority of the IDs supported. The tape drive is shipped with the SCSI ID preset to 3.

Follow these guidelines to select a SCSI ID:

vAssign the tape drive to one of the higher priority IDs available (0–6).

vAssign the lower priority ID numbers (8-15) to those devices that are most often used or are faster than other devices in the chain.

vDo not assign an ID of 7, because this is usually used as the SCSI adapter ID.

Depending on your computer, there are several ways to view your current SCSI ID settings:

2.This tape drive can be installed on a single-ended (SE) SCSI device chain, but doing so might limit the performance of the drive.

3.SCSI termination might be provided with your computer or SCSI adapter. Refer to the documentation that comes with your computer or SCSI adapter for more information.

2 100/200 GB HH LTO Internal Tape Drive: User’s Guide

vFor many IBM computers, press F1 during the startup after the memory check completes. Other adapters show SCSI settings when you press Ctrl A. Check the documentation that comes with your computer or SCSI adapter for information on how to view configuration information.

vUse SCSI adapter utility programs, if available.

vInspect the installed SCSI devices to see how the jumpers that determine the IDs are set.

Step 2. Preparing for installation

To prepare for installation:

1.Unpack the tape drive and store the packaging. You will need the packaging if you return the drive for service.

2.If you are installing the drive in an external storage enclosure, turn off the enclosure.

3.Turn off all attached devices.

4.Turn off the computer.

5.Disconnect all cables from the computer and all attached devices; then open the computer. For specific information on opening your computer, refer to the documentation that comes with your computer.

Attention: Tape drives are sensitive to static electricity discharge. The drive is wrapped in a static-protective bag to prevent damage.

6.Before opening the static-protective bag containing the tape drive, touch the bag to an unpainted metal surface on the computer for at least two seconds. Remove the drive from the static-protective bag. If you must put the drive down, place the drive on the static-protective bag. Do not touch any exposed components of the tape drive. Instead, handle it carefully by the edges.

Step 3. Setting the SCSI ID

Refer to the following diagram when setting the SCSI ID.

Installation and user’s guide 3

1SCSI connector 2SCSI ID connector 3Power connector

Note:

1.When setting the SCSI ID, use the jumpers that come with the tape drive.

2.If your enclosure uses a remote SCSI ID switch, remove the jumpers from the jumper pins on the tape drive and connect the remote switch.

1.Set the SCSI ID.

a.Locate the SCSI ID connector 2.

b.Decide on the SCSI ID number you want before you attach the SCSI bus cable to the host. Make sure that the ID number you want is not already being used by another device.

c.Find the jumper pin setting that corresponds to the SCSI ID number you choose; then place jumper pins on the SCSI ID blocks as shown. You can use a pair of flat-nose pliers to place the jumpers on the jumper pins.

2.Terminate the SCSI bus by adding the appropriate (LVD or SE) terminator to the last connector on the SCSI bus.

Step 4. Mounting the drive

Mount the tape drive; then attach the SCSI and power cables to it. If there is insufficient working space to attach the connectors after mounting the drive, attach the cables first. To mount the drive, follow these steps:

1.Locate an available 5.25-inch bay or space in your computer to mount the tape drive. Remove the cover plate from the bay selected. Place the drive horizontally or vertically.

2.Attach mounting hardware to drive (if applicable).

3.Align the drive-bay screw holes with the threaded holes in the drive housing. When you mount the tape drive, follow these guidelines:

vEnsure that no objects such as screw heads, cables, or adjacent devices are pressing against the frame.

vEnsure that nothing blocks the ventilation slots on the bottom and rear of the tape drive.

Attention: Use only the screws that come with the tape drive. Other screws might be too long and can cause damage to the drive.

4.Insert a screw through each of the drive-bay holes into the threaded holes in the drive and tighten the screws with a screwdriver.

4 100/200 GB HH LTO Internal Tape Drive: User’s Guide

Step 5. Attaching cables

To attach the SCSI and power cables to the tape drive:

1.Locate the SCSI cable on your computer (a 68-pin ribbon cable with one end connected to the SCSI adapter) and find the next available connector that is farthest from the adapter. Use all empty bus connectors beginning with the one farthest from the adapter to ensure better signal quality.

Note: The SCSI adapter might be part of the computer system board or might be an adapter installed in an expansion slot.

2.Attach the SCSI cable from your computer to the tape drive 68-pin SCSI connector1. The SCSI cable connector at the end of the SCSI cable will attach to the drive only one way. Do not force the cable onto the drive.

Attention: Do not force the power cable into the tape drive power connector. If the power cable is upside down and you force the connection, you might damage the drive.

3.Connect the power cable connector 2to the four-pin connector on the tape drive as shown in the illustration. If all the power cables are in use, purchase a dc Y-splitter cable, which is available at most electronics stores. Split a cable to make a connection available for the tape drive.

Step 6. Completing the installation

Check your work before closing the computer.

1.Be sure that the power and SCSI connectors are securely attached. Be sure that the cables are neatly routed.

Installation and user’s guide 5

2.Replace the computer cover and secure it in place. Reconnect the power cords and cables.

Step 7. Turning on the device

Turn on all attached devices; then turn on your computer. The tape drive performs a power-on self-test (POST) within 15 seconds and then performs a drive reset.

Step 8. Updating the configuration

For most computers, the configuration-setup utility program automatically recognizes the new tape drive. However, you might have to provide information about your system changes after you restart your computer.

Ensure that the appropriate advanced SCSI programming interface (ASPI) device drivers are installed to support the tape drive. Device drivers are usually provided with the SCSI adapter.

If your computer does not recognize the tape drive after startup or if you receive startup errors, run the configuration-setup utility program as described in the documentation that comes with your computer. If all the indicators on either side of the tape drive blink in unison, there is a problem with the tape drive. Press the Unload button on the right side of the drive front panel to eject any tape that might be inserted and to reset the drive. If the problem persists, turn off the computer; then turn it back on. If the problem continues, see “Appendix D. Troubleshooting” on page 17 for further steps.

Step 9. Installing backup and restore software

To use the drive, you must install an appropriate backup and restore application for your computer operating system. If you are using software not included in the option package, follow the directions that come with your software. If you are using the trial software that comes with the option, insert a trial application CD into the CD-ROM drive and follow the on-screen installation and operating instructions.

If you are using the hardware installation support that your operating system provides, and the operating system requests a device driver, insert the User’s Guide CD and look in the ‘‘device driver’’ folder.

Setting write protection on the cartridge

The front of the cartridge has an orange write-protect switch 1to prevent accidental erasure. Slide the switch to the right to write-protect2or to the left to enable writing.

Resetting the drive

The reset procedure rewinds the tape and clears the buffer of previous tape drive commands and data. To reset the tape drive, insert a paper clip into the emergency reset button on the front of the device, or turn the computer off and back on again. When reset, all front LEDs turn on and then off, with the top green LED remaining on to indicate a ready condition.

If you reset the tape drive while a cartridge is loaded, the tape rewinds to the beginning. The reset might take as long as 2 minutes if the tape is positioned near the end. After the drive has been reset, tape operation starts from the beginning of the data cartridge. After resetting the drive, restart your backup tape software.

Packing the drive for shipping

Attention: To avoid damaging the tape drive, use the original shipping materials when you ship it. Your proof of purchase might be required to receive warranty service. If you are returning the tape drive for service, remove and keep all cartridges, cables, and terminators.

If you are shipping the tape drive to another location or returning it for repair, pack the tape drive in its original shipping container and packing materials.

Installation and user’s guide 9

10 100/200 GB HH LTO Internal Tape Drive: User’s Guide

Appendix A. Maintenance

You need to perform regular maintenance on your 100/200 GB HH LTO Internal Tape Drive. This section explains how to care for the tape cartridges and how to clean the drive head.

Caring for tape cartridges

The following points are guidelines for storing and using the cartridges:

vDo not open the tape access door of the cartridge or touch the tape itself.

vKeep your cartridges away from sources of electromagnetic fields, such as telephones, dictation equipment, mechanical or printing calculators, motors, and bulk erasers. Do not place the cartridges on the computer monitor or on the base unit of the computer.

vKeep cartridges away from direct sunlight and heat sources, such as radiators or warm air ducts.

vKeep cartridges free of moisture. Do not wet or submerge cartridges in any liquid.

vDo not expose cartridges to temperature extremes.

Cleaning cartridges

You must use Ultrium cleaning cartridges with Ultrium tape drives, as other cleaning cartridges will not load and run. A cleaning cartridge is supplied with each tape drive and should only be used when the ‘Use Cleaning Cartridge’ amber LED is flashing. Insert the cleaning cartridge and the drive will carry out its cleaning cycle and eject the cartridge on completion (which can take up to 5 minutes). During the cleaning cycle the amber ‘Use Cleaning Cartridge’ LED will light solidly and the green ‘Ready‘ LED will flash.

Each cleaning cartridge can be used up to 15 times. If the cleaning cartridge is ejected immediately with the ‘Tape Error‘ LED on, it has expired. New cleaning cartridges are available from your supplier, and can be ordered following the insert-card instructions that come with the cleaning cartridge.

12 100/200 GB HH LTO Internal Tape Drive: User’s Guide

Appendix B. Tape handling

This section describes how to properly handle your tape cartridges to reduce wear on the 100/200 GB HH LTO Internal Tape Drive.

Tape handling and storage

Most tapes are supplied in sealed cartridges. Tapes are provided this way so that the tape will remain in a clean environment. Opening the cartridge enables dirt and airborne particles to enter and contaminate the cartridge. The cartridge must only be opened by the tape drive and not by an operator. The tape is also held under proper tension inside the cartridge. If the cartridge is dropped, this tension is relaxed. Inserting a dropped cartridge into a tape drive can often cause a misload that results in a jam. The jam ruins the tape and can cause physical damage if the cartridge is not removed properly. When you store tapes, place them in their protective containers and store them on their ends. Store the tapes in a clean, dry area at normal room temperature and away from magnetic fields.

Environmental issues

The operating environment might adversely affect tape drive operation. The tape drive is designed to operate in a clean environment. When tape is installed in a tape drive, the clearance between the heads and the tape is measured in microns. Even particles of smoke are larger than the space available between the tape and the heads. Other environmental factors that adversely affect tape drive operation are dirt, dust, fibers, and airborne particles. Ensure that you operate in a clean environment.

Tape drive cleaning

Even if the operating environment is clean, dirt might build up on the heads of any tape drive. Every time tape motion occurs, some of the media surface comes off on the heads. Over time, this material builds up, causing the tape head clearance to increase. The increased tape head clearance produces reading and writing errors. Most tape drives today have a built-in cleaning indicator to notify you when the tape needs cleaning.

Do not use any non-LTO cleaning cartridges with these tape drives. You can use cleaning cartridges only for a limited number of times. A cleaning cartridge is expired after it has been used for the maximum number of times as indicated. When a cleaning cartridge is expired, you must replace it. Never reuse an expired cleaning cartridge. If you continue to use an expired cleaning cartridge, you might reintroduce dirt to the tape drive and you might not clean the drive. To make sure that you know when your cleaning cartridge expires, make a notation on the cleaning cartridge each time you clean the tape drive.

Post-installation troubleshooting

Remember that the system recognizes devices during start-up. If you swap or connect a product when your system is running, you will need to restart the system. Restarting the system will reset devices and will often resolve problems. Restart the computer every time you add a driver or install firmware.

Understanding LEDs

Your tape drive has four LEDs (light emitting diodes) on the front panel, which indicate drive status. These LEDs provide useful troubleshooting information.

The tape drive performs a power-on self-test whenever power is applied or the drive is reset. The test takes about 5 seconds.

IBM Statement of Limited Warranty for United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada (Part 1 - General Terms)

This Statement of Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms and Part 2 - Country-unique Terms. The terms of Part 2 may replace or modify those of Part 1. The warranties provided by IBM in this Statement of Warranty apply only to Machines you purchase for your use, and not for resale, from IBM or your reseller. The term Machinemeans an IBM machine, its features, conversions, upgrades, elements, or accessories, or any combination of them. The term Machinedoes not include any software programs, whether pre-loaded with the Machine, installed subsequently or otherwise. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, the following warranties apply only in the country where you acquire the Machine. Nothing in this Statement of Warranty affects any statutory rights of consumers that cannot be waived or limited by contract. If you have any questions, contact IBM or your reseller.

Machine - 100/200 GB HH LTO Internal Tape Drive

Warranty period* - Three years

* Contact your place of purchase for warranty service information. Some IBM Machines are eligible for on-site warranty service depending on the country where service is performed.

The IBM Warranty for Machines

IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM’s Official Published Specifications. The warranty period for a Machine is a specified, fixed period commencing on its Date of Installation. The date on your sales receipt is the Date of Installation, unless IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise.

During the warranty period IBM or your reseller, if approved by IBM to provide warranty service, will provide repair and exchange service for the Machine, without charge, under the type of service designated for the Machine and will manage and install engineering changes that apply to the Machine.

If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, and IBM or your reseller are unable to either 1) make it do so or 2) replace it with one that is at least functionally equivalent, you may return it to your place of purchase and your money will be refunded. The replacement may not be new, but will be in good working order.

Extent of Warranty

The warranty does not cover the repair or exchange of a Machine resulting from misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, improper maintenance by you, or failure caused by a product for which IBM is not responsible. The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of Machine or parts identification labels.

THESE WARRANTIES ARE YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES AND REPLACE ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD.

Items Not Covered by Warranty

IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.

Unless specified otherwise, IBM provides non-IBM machines WITHOUT

WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.

Any technical or other support provided for a Machine under warranty, such as assistance via telephone with “how-to” questions and those regarding Machine set-up and installation, will be provided WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY

KIND.

Warranty Service

To obtain warranty service for the Machine, contact your reseller or IBM. In the United States, call IBM at 1-800-772-2227. In Canada, call IBM at 1-800-565-3344. (In Toronto, call 416-383-3344.) You may be required to present proof of purchase.

IBM or your reseller provides certain types of repair and exchange service, either at your location or at a service center, to keep Machines in, or restore them to, conformance with their Specifications. IBM or your reseller will inform you of the available types of service for a Machine based on its country of installation. IBM may repair the failing Machine or exchange it at its discretion.

When warranty service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item IBM or your reseller replaces becomes its property and the replacement becomes yours. You represent that all removed items are genuine and unaltered. The replacement may not be new, but will be in good working order and at least functionally equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement assumes the warranty service status of the replaced item.

Any feature, conversion, or upgrade IBM or your reseller services must be installed on a Machine which is 1) for certain Machines, the designated, serial-numbered Machine and 2) at an engineering-change level compatible with the feature, conversion, or upgrade. Many features, conversions, or upgrades involve the

24 100/200 GB HH LTO Internal Tape Drive: User’s Guide

removal of parts and their return to IBM. A part that replaces a removed part will assume the warranty service status of the removed part.

Before IBM or your reseller exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to remove all features, parts, options, alterations, and attachments not under warranty service.

You also agree to

1.ensure that the Machine is free of any legal obligations or restrictions that prevent its exchange;

2.obtain authorization from the owner to have IBM or your reseller service a Machine that you do not own; and

3.where applicable, before service is provided

a.follow the problem determination, problem analysis, and service request procedures that IBM or your reseller provides,

b.secure all programs, data, and funds contained in a Machine,

c.provide IBM or your reseller with sufficient, free, and safe access to your facilities to permit them to fulfill their obligations, and

d.inform IBM or your reseller of changes in a Machine’s location.

IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine while it is 1) in IBM’s possession or 2) in transit in those cases where IBM is responsible for the transportation charges.

Neither IBM nor your reseller is responsible for any of your confidential, proprietary or personal information contained in a Machine which you return to IBM or your reseller for any reason. You should remove all such information from the Machine prior to its return.

Production Status

Each IBM Machine is manufactured from new parts, or new and used parts. In some cases, the Machine may not be new and may have been previously installed. Regardless of the Machine’s production status, IBM’s appropriate warranty terms apply.

Limitation of Liability

Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on IBM’s part or other liability, you are entitled to recover damages from IBM. In each such instance, regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim damages from IBM (including fundamental breach, negligence, misrepresentation, or other contract or tort claim), IBM is liable for no more than

1.damages for bodily injury (including death) and damage to real property and tangible personal property; and

2.the amount of any other actual direct damages, up to the greater of U.S. $100,000 (or equivalent in local currency) or the charges (if recurring, 12 months’ charges apply) for the Machine that is the subject of the claim.

This limit also applies to IBM’s suppliers and your reseller. It is the maximum for which IBM, its suppliers, and your reseller are collectively responsible.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS IBM LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING: 1) THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU FOR DAMAGES (OTHER THAN THOSE UNDER THE FIRST ITEM LISTED ABOVE); 2) LOSS OF, OR DAMAGE TO, YOUR RECORDS OR DATA; OR 3) SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OR FOR ANY ECONOMIC
