2 Prepare the rack
www.hp.com
WARNING!
Consider the library’s weight and the weight of the other
components in the rack when deciding where to place the library
in the rack. Failure to do so might cause the rack to become
unstable and tip over. Place heavier components like servers
and disk arrays at the bottom of the rack. Place the library and
other lighter components above the heavier components.
1.
*AH876-96007*
Page 1
Lock the rack wheels or insert wheel chocks under the wheels to
prevent the rack from moving during installation.
2.
Use the template shipped with the library to mark the front and back
of the rack with the locations of the mounting hardware.
5.
If your library contains LTO4 or LTO5 tape drives or if you plan to
add them later, leave an additional 1U of space above the template
in which to install the switch. HP recommends that you leave 2U of
space above the library for future expansion, if possible.
3.
For the top mounting brackets, place a rail on top of each mounting
bracket. At the front of the rack, attach the rails at the locations
indicated on the front of the template. Use one T-15 flathead screw
and washer in each rail.
At the front of the rack, install six clip nuts at the locations indicated
on the front of the template. Also install one clip nut in each rail.
3 Install the 8U base module
WARNING!

Plug each power supply into a different power strip. You cannot plug
the power supplies directly into the wall outlet.
• If it’s not already plugged in, plug each power strip into the rack’s
power distribution unit (PDU). And plug the PDU into an AC outlet.
If you have more than one power distribution unit (PDU), plug each
PDU power cable into a different AC power circuit to establish redundancy.
14 Attach the bar code labels to the tape
cartridges
16 Power on the library
1.
Keep the center door of the library open and turn the center-door
knob one-quarter turn counterclockwise to raise the door-locking
lever that is on the top of the center door.
2.
Close the center door of the library and turn the centerdoor knob
one-quarter turn clockwise to lock it.
3.
At the rear of the library, turn on the main power switch.
CAUTION:
Handle tape cartridges with care. Do not drop or mishandle
them, or place them near sources of electromagnetic
interference. Rough handling can damage the tape cartridge
making it unusable and potentially hazardous to the tape drives.
CAUTION:
The misuse of bar code technology can result in backup and
restore failures. To ensure that your bar codes meet HP’s quality
standards, always purchase them from an approved supplier
and never print bar code labels yourself. For more information,
see the order form provided with the library, as well as the Bar
Code Label Requirements, Compatibility and Usage white paper
available from http://www.hp.com/support.
Attach a bar code label to each tape cartridge. Place the bar code label
entirely within the recessed area.
15 Insert the tape cartridges into the slots
NOTE:
IMPORTANT:
Your library might look different.
Do not insert tape cartridges into the 4U base module.
At the front of the library, insert the tape cartridges into the slots on the
side walls inside the 8U base module.
17 Initial Interface Manager card setup
If an IPv4 DHCP network is available and the fault LEDs are not
illuminated, verify that the NETWORK port on the Interface Manager
card is connected to that DHCP network for proper setup. Skip the rest
of this step.
Page 9
If the Interface Manager card does not have access to an IPv4 DHCP
network during initial power up, the Interface Manager must be
configured manually. The Interface Manager card will not enable or
configure its eth0 or eth1 ports until it knows which type of library type
it is installed in.
NOTE:
If the library is only connected to an IPv6 network, the Interface
Manager card and library firmware versions must support IPv6.
If the Interface Manager card or library firmware versions do
not support IPv6, connect and configure the library and Interface
Manager card to an IPv4 network, update the firmware, and
then connect and configure the library and Interface Manager
card for IPv6.
You will need a DB9 to 3-pin serial cable from the library accessory kit
to configure the Interface Manager manually.
• Verify that the operator control panel displays an HP logo, that the
robotic library controller (RLC) LED is flashing, and that the fault LED
for each installed tape drive is illuminated. The LEDs will remain illuminated until the Interface Manager card is set up.
• Plug the 3-pin connector of the DB9 to 3-pin serial cable into the
SERIAL port on the Interface Manager card. Plug the DB9 end of the
cable into the serial/COM port of a server or laptop.
• From the computer, open a terminal session to the Interface Manager
card using the following terminal configuration settings:
18 Configure the interface controller
If this is the first time the library has been powered on after delivery, or
if a new interface controller was installed, configure the interface
controller so that it is recognized by the Interface Manager card.
Attibute

None
The library requires up to fifteen minutes to initialize and
perform an inventory. While the library is performing an
inventory, continue with the next step.
Flow control
None
Wait several seconds and then turn on the power switch again.
• Once the computer has established a serial connection to the Interface
Manager card, log in with the user name admin and password admin.
19 Install the software
1.
Install HP StorageWorks Command View TL on the management
station. Install this software from the included CD.
2.
Install HP StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools (L&TT) on the
management station. Download this software from http://
www.hp.com/support/tapetools.
• Note the Interface Manager firmware revision by executing the
command show firmware revision, and the system date and
time by executing the command show mgmt clock.
If the IM is running firmware l232 or previous, enter service mode
to continue; otherwise, skip this step. To enter service mode, type
service at the CLI prompt and enter the current service password.
If the date on the IM is still set to 1/1/2001, use password
3FV6Y043FAUV8N.
• Execute the command set network config eml
• Wait until the RLC and drive fault LEDs are no longer illuminated and
the library starts to initialize. If the RLC fault LED is flashing after five
minutes, turn off the main power switch. Wait several seconds and
then turn on the main power switch again.
• When the RLC fault LED is not longer flashing, both Ethernet ports
on the Interface Manager card should be properly configured and
you can continue to set up the network.
• Configure the IP settings:
• If using IPv4, use either the library operator control panel or Interface Manager card serial connection to configure the static/manual IP address settings.
• If using IPv6, use the library operator control panel or Interface
Manager command line interface (CLI) to enable IPv6. Once IPv6
is enabled, use the Interface Manager CLI to configure IPv6 basic
settings.
20 Configure the library
After the inventory completes, use the touch screen (called the Operator
Control Panel or OCP) on the front of the library to configure the library.
Perform the following commands:
• Configuration > Library Configuration > Change
Password
Page 10
The library ships with a null password. Passwords must be set to exactly eight characters consisting of the numbers 0 through 9 and the
period character.
• Configuration > Library Configuration > Configure

This command shows the number of installed load ports and enables
you to toggle between using each for import/export or for storage.
Configure it as a load port to move tapes in and out of the library.
Configure it as slots to increase the number of storage slots in the
library. Changing a load port configuration will cause a library reboot.
• Configuration > Library Configuration > Change
Network Settings
This configures the network settings for the Interface Manager card,
which can be set automatically using DHCP (the default) or manually
using a static IP address. Use the Address Config: button to toggle
between these two options. If you are setting the network addresses
manually, set each address element separately.
• Configuration > Library Configuration > Configure
Barcode Reporting Formats
This command defines how bar codes are displayed on the OCP
and sent to the host. Bar code reporting can be configured as six to
eight characters and left or right aligned. If you choose six characters
with left alignment, any characters after the six are truncated. If you
choose six characters and right alignment, only the last six characters
are shown with the beginning characters truncated.
• Configuration > Library Configuration > Configure
Reserve Slots
Up to nine slots can be reserved for special purposes, such as
cleaning tapes. The default is none. Select the number you want to
reserve and press Save.
• Configuration > Library Configuration > Configure
Inventory Mode
This command allows you to require bar codes on tape cartridges,
or to make them optional. Requiring bar codes significantly shortens
inventory time.
