Overview
This section of the document provides a physical description
of the switches, indicators and connectors on the front and
rear panels of the 4000/7000DLT Series. Additional
information describes other requirements (additional
hardware and/or software) needed to utilize the
4000/7000DLT Series.
Description
The 4000/7000DLT Series consists of two models, the
DLTTM4000 and the DLTTM7000. They are all SCSI-2
compatible, high performance, streaming tape cartridge data
storage devices designed for storage of near-line and off-line
data. All models use data compression, compaction, and
Digital Linear Tape (DLT) to obtain the capacities shown in
Table 2-1. The 4000/7000DLT Series are equipped with a 2line by 20-character backlit LCD display. The LCD displays
drive status messages, error messages, and drive Power-On
Self-Test (POST) results messages.

The 4000/7000DLT Series are equipped with a 5 1/4 inch form
factor, half-inch tape drive. The design includes a dualchannel read/write head, Digital Lempel-Ziv (DLZ) highefficiency data compression, and tape mark directory to
maximize data throughput and minimize data access time.
Used for unattended backups or archiving, the 4000/7000DLT
Series allows you to back up a higher data capacity at higher
speed than either 8mm or 4mm DAT-based drives. Table 2-2
lists the maximum compressed mode transfer rates of the two
models:

The removable tape media cartridge allows long-term off-line
and/or off-site data storage. The tape media is rated at up to
500,000 passes and has a shelf life of up to 30 years providing
superior media durability and data reliability.
Table 2-3 on page 2-4 lists the drive models used in the
4000/7000DLT Series. Tape density is selected either from the
drive front panel or the host. The 4000DLT, and 7000DLT
drives can read/write 2.6, 6.0, and 10.0 GB formatted tapes for
100% interchange compatibility with earlier DLT drives.

The Write-Protect switch prevents accidental erasure of data.
If the switch is moved all the way to the left, the cartridge is
write-protected and the drive cannot write to, or erase data
from, the cartridge. The small orange rectangle will be visible
whenever the cartridge is write-protected. Additionally, an
arrow (beneath the orange rectangle and above the two lines
on the switch), lets you know that data cannot be written to
the cartridge. If the switch is moved all the way to the right,
the cartridge is write-enabled and the drive can write data to,
or erase data from, the cartridge. The orange rectangle will not
be visible whenever the cartridge is write-enabled. On the
right side of the write-protect switch an arrow over one line
indicates that if you slide the switch to the right, data can be
written to the cartridge. Refer to Figure 2-4 on page 2-10.

Overview
This chapter explains the steps necessary to install and test
your 4000/7000DLT Series. It also provides an information
symbol for each event that you should verify as correct before
continuing.
Unpacking and Inspecting
Unpack all items from the carton.
None of the components should have any damage.
Save the packing materials in case you need to move or ship
the system in the future. You must ship the unit in the
original or equivalent packing materials or your warranty
may be invalidated.
Installing the Host Adapter
If your host computer does not have native SCSI capability
and the host adapter you are using is not installed, please
install it. Refer to the manual that came with your host adapter
for specific directions.
Connecting the Interface Cable
Note
The bail (or other)
locks at the ends
of the SCSI cable
must be securely
fastened to insure
communications
between the
4000/7000DLT
Series and the
host computer.
Attach an interface cable between the host adapter and your
4000/7000DLT Series. The kind of cable you need depends on
the kind of SCSI bus connector on your host adapter. The
4000/7000DLT Series has two SCSI device connectors on the
rear panel. It does not matter which connector you use.
Make sure that the SCSI cable between the host adapter and
the 4000/7000DLT Series is secure and the connections are
fastened correctly.
Overview
4-3
Connecting More than One 4000/
7000DLT Series
If you are connecting more than one 4000/7000DLT Series
unit on the same SCSI channel, simply connect each unit to the
previous unit with an additional interface cable. It doesn't
matter which SCSI connector on each 4000/7000DLT Series
unit you connect the interface cable to. Figure 4-1 shows a
sample configuration.
Note
Don’t forget to
install the SCSI
terminator on the
last device in the
chain.

Setting the SCSI ID
Note
The SCSI ID has
been factory
preset to 0.
All devices on a
SCSI bus must be
set to a unique
address.
Depending upon your setup, operating system and number of
SCSI devices on the bus, you may have to change the SCSI
address of the 4000/7000DLT Series. Each device on the bus
must have its own unique address. See Figure 4-1 on page 4-4
and Figure 4-2.

S C S I ID
S w itch
Figure 4-2
Note
All
4000/7000DLT
Series models can
be set to any SCSI
ID between 0 and
7. The 7000DLT, a
fast-wide SCSI-2
device, can be set
to any SCSI ID
between 0 and 15.
SCSI ID Switch
The SCSI ID switch is located on the rear of the 4000/7000DLT
Series (see Figure 7). Use a small pointed object to press either
the + button on the bottom, or the minus button on the top of
the switch to select the proper ID.
Setting the SCSI ID
4-5
Count each device's SCSI ID in sequence 0 to 7 (or 0 to 15),
on each SCSI bus to confirm that no two devices have the
same ID.
Note
The SCSI Host
Adapter is
normally set to
SCSI ID 7, so this
ID is usually not
available for a
device.
Check the SCSI Bus Termination
SCSI buses require termination at each end for proper
operation. A typical external subsystem installation would be
terminated at the SCSI host adapter and at the last device in
the chain.
If an external device is being used with an internal device (on
the same channel), the SCSI host adapter would now be in the
middle of the bus rather than at the end. In this case, the
termination would be at the internal device and the last drive
in the external chain. The terminators on the SCSI host
adapter would be removed. See your SCSI host adapter
manual for directions on removing the terminators on the
board.
Is there a terminator installed on each end of the SCSI bus?
Note
For single-ended
drives,
recommends
using an active
single-ended
SCSI terminator.
For differential
drives, use a
passive
differential
terminator.

Connecting Power and Turning On
Note
Step 1
Plug the power cord into the back of the 4000/
7000DLT Series.
Step 2
Plug the power cord from the 4000/7000DLT Series
into a GROUNDED electrical outlet.
Step 3
Plug the power cord from your host system into the
same GROUNDED electrical circuit if possible.
Computers and peripherals should always share
the same grounds.
Step 4
Turn ON the power to your host system.
Step 5
Turn the 4000/7000DLT Series power ON.
Turning on the
host computer
first ensures that
the SCSI bus
terminators
stabilize the bus
signals before the
tape drive is
turned on.
Installing the Backup Software
At this point, please refer to your backup software installation
guide and install the backup software.
After you have completed installation of your 4000/7000DLT
Series and the backup software, you should run a small
backup/restore and compare to confirm that your unit is
working correctly. See your software installation guide for
additional information.

This section describes normal operating features of the
4000/7000DLT Series. Additionally, it explains how, and
when, to clean the tape head. This section also describes how
to clean the enclosure.
Power-on Self-Test
When you turn system power ON, the DLT drive performs a
Power-on Self-Test (POST). The sequence of events is:
•
The LEDs on the right front panel of the DLT drive will
turn on sequentially from top to bottom. All LEDs will
remain ON for a few seconds.
•
The LEDs on the left front panel will turn ON at the same
time for about three seconds and then turn OFF.
•
The Operate Handle Write Protected and Use Cleaning
Tape LEDs will turn OFF. The Tape in Use LED will
blink while the tape drive initializes.
•
If your external SCSI bus terminator has a Term Power
LED it should also be illuminated.

Use Cleaning Tape LED
If an excessive number of read-after-write errors are detected
during normal operation of the 4000/7000DLT Series, the Use
Cleaning Tape LED will be turned on by the drive.
Usually, the Use Cleaning Tape LED is turned on by the
drive because of a dirty head, so the head should be cleaned
and the operation tried again.
If the Use Cleaning Tape LED is again turned on and this
seems to be a cartridge rather than a drive problem, make sure
that all the data on that cartridge is backed up to a new
cartridge by doing a complete backup from the source drive,
if necessary. Then discard the old cartridge. If you are unsure
of the problem source, call customer service.
The Use Cleaning Tape LED is normally turned off by
executing a cleaning cycle or by cycling power to the
4000/7000DLT Series.
Use Cleaning Tape LED
6-5
Why the Use Cleaning Tape LED Gets
Turned ON
The Use Cleaning Tape LED will be turned on whenever the
drive has determined that low level error performance has
degraded to a point where drive head cleaning is absolutely
required. It does this by counting the number of C3 (soft)
errors as well as the RAW (Read After Write) errors over a
number of Mbytes. When a predetermined error rate
threshold is reached, the drive displays the warning. Some
drives display the warning after a specified number of hours
of tape motion have been logged. When a tape is loaded, it
may take several minutes for the indication to come on
because the drive will wait for a specific number of bytes to be
written. A hard (non-recoverable) error will cause the
warning to be displayed immediately.
The most common reasons that the Use Cleaning Tape LED
gets turned on for, in order of highest rate of occurrence, are
listed below:
•
Dirty ("Stained") heads.
A cleaning cycle must be executed to clear this indication.
•
Worn tape.
DLT tapes are rated at 500,000 passes. Applications that
overwrite small blocks of data cause "shoe shining" of the
tape against the head and will reach the 500,000 passes
sooner than might be expected.
•
Bad environment.
Data errors result from a number of factors, each of which
subtract from the margin between good data recovery
and an error. Electrical or magnetic interference can
decrease this margin. High levels of dust contamination,
high humidity, and heat can also be significant factors.
Placing a CRT monitor on top of, or directly next to, a
4000/7000DLT Series should always be avoided.
6-6
Troubleshooting and Diagnostic
•
Worn heads.
The tape heads will eventually wear out causing the time
between cleanings to get shorter and shorter. Tape head
failure is usually predicted at about 12% of the MTBF
rating (10,000 hours).
•
Defective drive.
Drive amplifier settings could be off, causing error rate
degradation. The drive could simply have failed.
62-0162-01
High Humidity
To minimize the chance of condensation, please observe the
following guidelines:
•
If you expose cartridges to temperatures outside the
operating limits (5-40°C/40-113°F), stabilize them before
you use them. To do this, leave the cartridges in the
operating temperature for a minimum of two hours.
•
Avoid temperature problems by ensuring that the
ventilator slots at the front of the drive and the grille on
the bottom of the chassis are not obstructed so that the
drive has adequate ventilation
•
Position the drive where the temperature is relatively
stable, for example, away from open windows, fan
heaters, and doors.
•
Avoid leaving cartridges in severe temperature
conditions, for example, in a car standing in bright
sunlight.
•
Avoid transferring data (reading from and writing to
cartridges) when the temperature is changing by more
than 10°C per hour.
