I have dpt scsi raid controller and a tandenburg tape drive. It seems the since the tape drive is a non-raid device it is having troubles with the dpt card. When doing a backup the tape drive will sometimes lockup the entire system. I have heard of this so I decided to use another card. (By the way, I get no errors in any logs when the systems crashes) The other card is an older dpt card that uses the eata scsi driver in the OS. The problem I am having is that linux does not automatically see the tape drive like it did when connected to may main raid card.
My ? is, how do I get Linux to see that tape drive. I am sure it is and easy question, so exuse my ignorance.
I don't have RAID cards myself so I'm just going off of what I know here.
You need to load the driver for the second RAID card. Even though it may be using the same driver file, it's differnet in set up and module loading.
insmod and lsmod is the command you should use.
