I have a tape drive directly attached to a server with a SCSI interface. I want this server to have the OSB client, Admin and the media server. I obtained the tape drive details (required later during the OSB install) using the OSB driver. The OSB express install runs through fine. However, I get the following error when configuring the device using the obtool:
Error: host sun440n001 is not a media server.
I selected the following options when installing OSB Express:
Oracle Secure Backup's Web server has been loaded, but is not yet configured.
You can install this host one of three ways:
(a) administrative server
(the host will also be able to act as a media server or client)
(b) media server
(the host will also be able to act as a client)
If you are not sure which way to install, please refer to the Oracle
Secure Backup Installation Guide. (a,b or c) [a]?
Is sun440n001 connected to any tape libraries that you'd like to use with
Oracle Secure Backup [no]?
Is sun440n001 connected to any tape drives that you'd like to use with
Oracle Secure Backup [no]? yes
How many Oracle Secure Backup tape drives are attached to sun440n001 ?
Please describe each tape drive by answering the following questions.
Oracle Secure Backup logical unit number :
SCSI bus name-instance [pci1000,302]:
SCSI target ID : 3
SCSI lun 0-7 :
Is the information you entered correct [yes]?
As you can see above, I made this server the administrative server(which should include the client and media server). As the for the second option, I select ‘no’ for tape library and ‘yes’ for drive: Is this correct? Or do I create a tape drive within a library even though I only have a directly attached tape drive?
What command do I use to configure the device in obtool? I used the following but I don’t think it’s correct:
mkdev -t tape -o -a sun440n001:/dev/obt0 suntd
What needs to be set for the '–a' flag? Is '/dev/obt0' correct?
Your help will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
