Looking from the front of the library, each left tape magazine includes a mail slot, which is
accessible when that magazine door is open. When this mail slot pivots forward, you can insert or
remove a single tape without having to unlock, remove, and reinventory the magazine. If a full tape
cartridge magazine is required, the library can be reconfigured to recognize each mail slot as a
standard data slot. The right tape magazine contains fixed cartridge slots (no mail slot feature), so it
retains its full capacity at all times.
NOTE: The slots and mail slots are numbered beginning with 0: the first slot is Slot 0, the second is
Slot 1, etc. SDLT magazine maximum capacity is 26 slots; LTO magazine maximum capacity is 30
slots.
MSL6000 series tape library user guide

Power Supplies
MSL Series tape libraries support one or two power supplies depending upon the model (see
Figure 4). These auto-ranging power supplies are capable of using any nominal AC voltage
between 100 VAC and 240 VAC power, at 50 Hz or 60 Hz.
Power to the library is supplied through AC connectors at the rear panel of each power supply
receiver. Library power is normally controlled from the graphical user interface (GUI) touch screen;
however, a manual power disconnect switch is located at the rear of each power supply.
CAUTION: The power supply is generally not to be removed by the operator. Hazardous voltage is
present in the cavity if the power cord is not removed. If a faulty power supply exists, contact your
authorized service provider.
For the four-drive models, two power supplies are supported to provide redundancy for mission
critical operations. Both power supplies share the load under normal operating conditions, but if
one of the power supplies fails, the remaining power supply assumes the full load (see Figure 4 on
page 22). For the two-drive models, only one power supply is supported.

Introduction
Robotics
MSL Series tape library robotics consist of a cartridge shuttle, motor hardware, motor drives, and
other support electronics (see Figure 5). The four-drive models also contain a vertical axis
mechanism that enables the robotics to travel between the upper and lower tape cartridge
magazines. These robotics are capable of picking and placing tapes throughout a 180-degree arc
that consists of the tape drives, tape cartridge magazines, and an optional Pass-Through
Mechanism (PTM).
The cartridge shuttle assembly includes a mounted bar code reader for scanning labeled tape
cartridges installed in the magazines and tape drives.
NOTE: Both full bar code reader scan and physical scan are conducted each time the library is
initially powered up, or each time a tape magazine is accessed using normal operational modes.
In four-drive models, the robotic-PTM interface is at the lower vertical axis PTM elevator position only.

Library Controller Board
The library controller board contains a single microprocessor and associated logic devices to
control all robotics operations and manage overall library functions. The microprocessor enables the
SCSI interface between the library and the host system.
The library controller board is installed in a card cage at the rear of the library. In four-drive models,
the library controller board can be serviced with a #1 Phillips screwdriver (see Figure 6). If a
replacement controller board is needed, contact your authorized service provider. Step-by-step

Multi Unit Library Systems
MSL Series tape libraries can be stacked in a scalable combination with additional two-drive and
four-drive models to form a multi unit library configuration. Through use of a rear-mounted
Pass-Through Mechanism (PTM), all libraries in a multi unit library configuration can operate
together as a single virtual library system. Stacked libraries are interconnected through their rear
panel Ethernet connections to a supplied LAN hub that mounts to the rack enclosure. The LAN hub
also provides a wide area network (WAN) connector when libraries are combined in their
maximum stacked height.
A maximum of four four-drive models or eight two-drive models can be connected together in this
manner. Any combination of libraries, not exceeding 40 Units (40U) in total stacked height, can
also be used. A multi unit library configuration appears as a single library to the host computer
system and application software. For multi unit applications, the top library becomes the master unit
and all other libraries are slave units.
WARNING! The PTM continues to function each time a slave library is physically removed from the
rack enclosure configuration during normal library operation. Refer to the HP StorageWorks MSL
Series Pass-Through Mechanism Reference Guide for detailed installation, configuration, and
operation information.
The library robotics can pick and place tape cartridges into a movable elevator that encompasses
the full length of the PTM. In this manner, individual tapes can be passed up or down between the
libraries contained in the multi unit library configuration under the master library control. Robotics

Figure 11 Converting a tabletop model (four-drive model shown)
Setting Up the Rackmount Model
WARNING!
To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, be sure that:
• The leveling jacks are extended to the floor.
• The full weight of the rack rests on the leveling jacks.
• In single rack installations, the stabilizing feet are attached to the rack.
• In multiple rack installations, the racks are coupled.
• Only one rack component is extended at any time. A rack may become unstable if more than
one rack component is extended for any reason.
Setting up the rackmount model requires a template, rack enclosure slide rails, and two people or a
mechanical lift to physically install the library in a rack enclosure.
To set up the rackmount model:
1. Use the template that shipped with the library to mark the location of the mounting hardware on
the mounting rails of the rack enclosure (see Figure 12). The black dots along the sides of the
template indicate the top of a U.
30
Installation
Figure 12 Library template (10000 rack enclosure shown)
NOTE: For HP rack system/e and AlphaServer H9A rack enclosures, refer to the appropriate rack
rail adapter kit.
2. Remove the template and then attach the rails using the supplied fasteners (see Figure 12). The
front rail brackets are threaded to directly accept screws. The rear brackets are not threaded and
require cage/clip nuts in the rack enclosure rear vertical rails.
NOTE: Refer to the Compaq Rack Products Reference Guide for detailed cage nut installation
instructions on 10000 racks.
NOTE: Fully tighten the front rail screws. Leave the rear rail screws “finger tight” to prevent binding
when mounting the library.
a. Fully extend the slide rails X on both sides of the rack enclosure until they lock.
b. Slide the inner guide rail Y as far as possible to the front of the rail assembly.

Figure 13 Installing the rails
3. Install the two slide-on clip nuts (previously marked using the template, two holes above the top
bracket screw holes) on each of the front rack enclosure vertical rails (Figure 13).
WARNING! Two people should perform the next step. Make certain, when the library is fully
extended, that a force of 20% of the rack enclosure’s weight, but not more than 57 pounds (26 kg),
applied in any direction other than upwards, does not cause the rack enclosure to overbalance.
CAUTION:
The library is heavier toward the tape drive end (rear).
4. Using two people, lift the library and visually align the inner and intermediate slide rails.
5. Carefully insert the library’s inner slide rails Z into the extended intermediate slide rails Y (see
Figure 14).
6. Slide the library into the rack enclosure until the rail locks are engaged.
WARNING! A rack enclosure might become unstable if more than one library is extended for any
reason. Extend only one library at a time.
7. Push in on the rail locks to release the library and slide the library completely into the rack
enclosure.
8. Fully tighten the rear rail screws.

Cabling for SCSI Configurations
This section describes supported SCSI cable configurations for the library.
The following SCSI configurations are detailed in this section:
• Two tape drives, dual host system (MSL6030/MSL6026)
• Four tape drives, dual host system (MSL6060/MSL6052)
NOTE: MSL Series libraries support SCSI cable configuration for one to four hosts and one to four
tape drives. Contact your authorized reseller for a list of supported configurations.
NOTE:
36
Installation
Host cables are not supplied with the MSL Series library.
See Appendix D, ”Configuration Examples” beginning on page 165 for a complete listing of
potential configurations.
Supported SCSI Cables
NOTE: For optimum performance, a maximum of one tape drive per SCSI bus is recommended for
Ultrium 460, Ultrium 960, and Ultrium 1840 tape drives.
Each of the tape drives and the library controller constitute an independent SCSI target. When any
two or more devices are connected to the same SCSI bus, each separate SCSI device must be
assigned a unique SCSI ID. For information on assigning SCSI IDs, see Chapter 3, ”Library
Configuration” on page 39.
NOTE: SCSI IDs are set at the factory. If you want to change any of the firmware defaults, you can
do so using the GUI touch screen.
To connect a library to a host system, the host system must have at least one Wide LVD controller
and the appropriate driver software.

The library is in a fault state as detailed by the error
message on the GUI touch screen.
Front Panel and Media Security Locks
The following security features are available to help you avoid accidental interruption of library
operation.
GUI Touch Screen
The GUI touch screen offers three levels of security (see Figure 37):
• User Level 1—allows access to the mail slot(s).
• User Level 2—allows magazine access, mail slot access, SCSI options, diagnostics, and lets you
move media.
MSL6000 series tape library user guide
51
• Service—allows access to the administrative menu that lets you view/edit library and SCSI
options.
NOTE:
The library ships with a default service password of 5566.
Figure 37 Password levels
Each password is represented by four decimal digits that are stored in NVRAM in a range of 0001
to 9999.
NOTE:
0000 is used to disable password verification for each level.
Enabling a password at a lower level re-enables disabled higher levels to that value. As a result,
prior to accessing any higher level operation, you are prompted first to enter the new higher level
password.
You can also use a higher level password to gain access to a lower level operation. For example,
use the Service password to access the Move Media operation. Using the Service password to
access the Menu option also gives full access (without validating) to the Service operations.
NOTE: To restore passwords if forgotten, use Set User Defaults on the Maintenance screen of the
GUI. Note that any configuration that was previously set will be lost. If necessary, record all
configuration settings before resetting the password.
CAUTION:
52
Operation
Do not use Set Factory Defaults or library damage may occur.
Host System
Media can also be reserved by software running on the host. The library provides no GUI touch
screen override for this command. Usually, exiting the host software restores media access. In the
event of host failure, you can restore media access by cycling the library power.
Library Display Screens and Options
The library GUI touch screen displays graphics and text characters in the form of easy-to-understand
messages. Graphics and text messages, along with their functions, are described in this section.
Initialization Screen
When power is first applied to the library, a series of Power-On Self Test (POST) diagnostics are
performed. After the POST completes, the following initialization screen appears during the library
inventory and scalability configuration.

Description
Drive and Slot Numbering
Lets you specify whether SCSI elements in the library displays
with either zero based or one based. Note that this only affects
the GUI touch screen, not the actual SCSI element addresses. The
default is Zero Based.
Library Mode
Lets you set the robotics operating mode to Random, Sequential
Drv0, Sequential Drv n (two or more drives), or Sequential Split.
Sequential Drive n and Sequential Split require two or more
drives in the library. Sequential mode is not available with
multi-module configurations. The default is Random.
Sequential Mode
Sequential Mode is locally controlled. Sequential operations
begin with any cartridge loaded into Drive 0. The library
monitors the drive status, and when the host unloads a cartridge
from the drive, it returns the cartridge to the magazine, and then
loads the next cartridge in magazine numerical order. This
operation continues until all cartridges have been loaded, or
until an empty slot is encountered. Two options are available:
Normal (same as Library Mode above) and Recirculate. Instead
of stopping after the cartridge in the last slot for the drive has
been unloaded by the host, Recirculate mode continues the
operation by loading the first cartridge for the drive.
Recirculation will continue until an empty slot is encountered, or
the operator unloads the tape using the GUI touch screen.
LCD Contrast Adjust
The LCD contrast controls let you increase or decrease the
contrast of the LCD display. The incremental steps are set by
adjusting the LCD Contrast Adjust option from the Library option.
Incremental steps can range from 0 to 31 depending on your

Inserting and Removing Tape Cartridges
Unless you are using the mail slot(s), a tape magazine must be removed from the library to remove
or insert tape cartridges. Make sure the slot you want to use is not already reserved for a tape
cartridge or cleaning cartridge that is now in a tape drive. The safest way to do this is to unload all
tape drives before removing a magazine. You can unload all the tape drives either through your
host system software or by using the LOAD/UNLOAD command from the Library Option menu.
72
Operation
NOTE:
Do not add more tape cartridges to the library than its rated slot capacity.
CAUTION: Ultrium and SDLT tape drives require special cleaning cartridges and data cartridges
formatted specifically for the drive technology. To avoid damage to your tape drive, it is critical to
use appropriate cleaning cartridges and properly formatted data cartridges. Contact an HP
authorized dealer or sales representative for current compatibility and availability.
Removing Magazines
Library magazine removal is a manual operation. Access the magazines using the Magazine
Access option from the library Status screen. This option lets you open the left- or right-hand
magazine doors separately, or all magazine doors at the same time. After opening the appropriate
magazine door, pull the magazine out from the library chassis (see Figure 59).

NOTE: Handle and store tape cartridges in a clean, dust-free environment. Refer to the
documentation provided with your tape cartridges for additional information.
Using Mail Slots (Left-hand Magazines Only)
Mail slots are used only with host system software that supports this feature. The mail slot feature lets
you insert or remove a single tape without removing the entire magazine. The benefit of using a mail
slot is that the magazine does not need to be reinventoried. Access the mail slots using the Mail
Slot Access option from the library Status screen. This option lets you open a left-hand magazine
door for mail slot access. After opening a left-hand magazine door, pivot the mail slot forward to
insert a tape cartridge (see Figure 61).
74
Operation
NOTE: Mail slots must be enabled (firmware default) using the Mail Slot Mode option from the
Edit Library Options menu. See Table 5 for more information.
NOTE: Disabling a mail slot allows it to be used for an additional data slot, but this may be
incompatible with some host software applications.

Labeling Tape Cartridges
Attaching a bar code label to each tape cartridge enables the library and application software to
identify the cartridge quickly, thereby speeding up inventory time. Make it a practice to use bar
code labels on your tape cartridges. Your host software may need to keep track of the following
information and the associated bar code:
• Date of format or initialization
• Tape’s media pool
• Data residing on the tape
• Age of the backup
• Errors encountered while using the tape (to determine if the tape is faulty)
MSL6000 series tape library user guide
75
CAUTION: The misuse and misunderstanding 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, refer to
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.
Ultrium Labels
Ultrium tape cartridges have a recessed area located on the face of the cartridge next to the
write-protect switch. Use this area for attaching the adhesive-backed bar code label (see Figure 62).
Do not apply labels onto the cartridge except in this designated area.
CAUTION: The bar code label should be applied as shown in Figure 62 with the alphanumeric
portion facing the hub side of the tape cartridge. Never apply multiple labels onto a cartridge, as
extra labels can cause the cartridge to jam in a tape drive.
Figure 62 Attaching a bar code label to an Ultrium tape cartridge
76
Operation
To ensure successful operation of your tape library, place the bar code label entirely within the
recessed area, ensuring that no part of the label is outside of it (see Figure 63).
Figure 63 Proper Ultrium bar code label placement
SDLT Labels
SDLT tape cartridges have a front slide slot located on the face of the cartridge next to the
write-protect switch (see Figure 64 shows) Use this slot for inserting the bar code label by sliding it
into the slot.
CAUTION: Do not apply labels onto the top, bottom, sides, or back of the cartridge as this may
cause damage to the tape drive, or interfere with reliable operation.

Remote Management Interface
Many of the same operations performed from the front panel can also be performed remotely using
the Remote Management Interface. Sections in this chapter include:
• Overview, page 79
• Accessing the Remote Management Interface, page 80
• Using Menu Buttons, page 82
• Changing the Remote Management Interface Passwords, page 88
Overview
The Remote Management Interface lets you monitor and control your automated tape library from
any terminal connected to your network or via the World Wide Web. The Remote Management
Interface hosts a dedicated, protected Internet site that displays a graphical representation of your
library.
After establishing a connection to the library, open any Web browser and enter the IP address of
the library.
NOTE:
Be sure that proxy server settings in your browser are disabled
This internet site can be accessed using either Microsoft Internet Explorer (3.0 or higher) or
Netscape (3.0 or higher). The Remote Management Interface shows the overall status of the library
at a glance, and presents a control panel for making adjustments and viewing details down to the
cartridge level.
To use the Remote Management Interface, you must have the following available:
• A 10 BaseT Ethernet Network
• An available IP address (either Internet or local)
• A host computer with COM port (initial setup and alternative maintenance procedures only)
• A computer with a Web browser installed that has access to your network
Two configurations for the Remote Management Interface are available:
• World Wide Accessible.
• Local Area Network
To configure the Remote Management Interface you must set the IP addresses. (For information on
setting IP addresses, see ”Configuring the Network Settings” on page 47.)
MSL6000 series tape library user guide
79
CAUTION: Some options of the Remote Management Interface take the library offline. This inactive
mode can interfere with host-based application software, causing data loss. Ensure that the library
is idle before attempting to perform any remote operations that will take the library offline.
Accessing the Remote Management Interface
To access your library remotely, the library must be in the ready mode to establish communications
with the Remote Management Interface. If you are unable to access the unit with your browser,
verify the library is not being operated locally.

Maintaining Tape Cartridges
NOTE: In addition to the information provided in this section, refer to the documentation provided
with your media for more information.
Make it a practice to visually inspect your tape cartridges when loading or removing them from your
library. Taking a few minutes to check the condition of your cartridges will lower the risk of
operation and drive failures and help ensure uninterrupted backup.
Repeated drive failures may indicate defective tapes. Tapes need to be inspected and replaced if
they have been dropped, damaged, or used with a failed drive. To determine if the tapes have been
damaged:
• Gently shake the tape cartridge to verify that no internal parts are rattling, indicating that they
may be loose.
• Look at the tape cartridge to check for any obvious cracks or other physical damage. Look for
broken or missing parts.
CAUTION: Always discard damaged tape cartridges. If a defective tape cartridge is loaded into a
tape drive, it may in turn damage the drive potentially requiring drive replacement.
92
Maintenance
Do not use cartridges with:
• Tape or leaders that have been touched with bare fingers, as this may transfer oils to the tape
head.
• Labels used on the top, bottom, sides, or back of the cartridge. Use the label slot or recess only.
• More than one label applied, as extra labels can cause the cartridges to jam in the tape drive.
Ultrium Cartridges
CAUTION: Do not bulk erase Ultrium formatted cartridges. This will destroy pre-recorded servo
information, and make the cartridges unusable.
SDLT Cartridges
In addition to the general inspection listed on page 92, you can further determine if SDLT tapes
have been damaged by doing the following:
• Visually inspect the tape for a broken, unseated, or misaligned tape leader (Figure 75 on
page 93).
• Check the leader position by pressing in the door lock to release the cartridge door. While
pressing in the door lock, push the tab down to open the door. Be careful not to touch the tape
after opening the door. Ensure that the leader is in the correct position (Figure 75 on page 93).

Running a Cleaning Cartridge
Use the Clean Drive menu option contained in the Maintenance submenu of the Utilities area
on the front panel display to clean tape drives installed in HP StorageWorks MSL Series tape library.
MSL6000 series tape library user guide
93
CAUTION: Only perform the Clean Drive menu option when the library displays a message
informing you that a tape drive needs cleaning. Excessive, unrequested cleaning can damage the
tape drives.
CAUTION: Ultrium and SDLT tape drives require special cleaning cartridges and data cartridges
formatted specifically for the drive technology. To avoid damage to your tape drive, it is critical to
use appropriate cleaning cartridges and properly formatted data cartridges. Contact an HP
authorized dealer or sales representative for current compatibility and availability.
NOTE: Backup application software must be compatible with the library autoclean feature to avoid
robot command conflicts.
NOTE:
HP does not support preventive autocleaning operation.
Because the cleaning cartridge is abrasive, you should not use it unless the message “Use
Cleaner” appears on the front panel display. There are three ways to manage the cleaning of the
installed tape drives:
• Automatically, by application software.
• Automatically, by enabling Auto Clean Mode.
• Manually, by selecting the Clean Drive menu option from the Maintenance submenu on the
front panel display.
Automatically Running a Cleaning Cartridge
You can configure the library so that it automatically runs the cleaning cartridge mode. After a tape
drive that needs cleaning completes an unload operation, it sends a cleaning needed message to
the library. This activates an automatic cleaning cycle if the cleaning cartridge slot has been
reserved, Auto Clean Mode has been selected from the Library Options menu, and the
appropriate cartridge technology is loaded.
To configure the library to use Auto Clean Mode, do the following:
1. Reserve a cleaning cartridge slot. (See ”Setting Up a Reserved Slot” on page 41 for more
information.)
2. Enable Auto Clean Mode. (See ”Library Display Screens and Options” on page 53 for more
information.)
Manually Running a Cleaning Cartridge
A cleaning cartridge can be installed and run from one of three locations:
94
Maintenance
• The Mail Slot—This location has the advantage of not needing to remove a magazine to use a
data cartridge slot, or to reserve a cleaning cartridge slot.
• A Tape Cartridge Slot—This location requires removing a magazine to insert a cleaning
cartridge in a tape cartridge slot, and then removing it after cleaning.
• The Cleaning Slot—This location requires reserving the last tape cartridge slot for exclusive use
as a cleaning cartridge slot. The advantage with this method is that the cleaning cartridge is
stored in the library and is always available for use. It needs to be handled only when it expires
and needs to be replaced. (See ”Setting Up a Reserved Slot” on page 41 for more information.)
Running a Cleaning Cartridge from a Mail Slot
1. Insert a cleaning cartridge into a Mail Slot (see ”Using Mail Slots (Left-hand Magazines Only)”

Troubleshooting
This chapter describes how to identify and resolve the problems that can cause an HP StorageWorks
MSL Series tape library to malfunction. Sections in this chapter include:
• Identifying Platform Problems, page 101
• Performing Error Recovery, page 102
• Troubleshooting General Problems, page 135
• Using Diagnostic Support Tools, page 140
• Running Library Diagnostic Tests, page 141
Identifying Platform Problems
An incorrect installation or configuration can cause platform problems. In this case, the library
appears to be operating normally, but no data can be interchanged, or performance is poor. You
also might or might not get an error code on the graphical user interface (GUI) touch screen. To
identify an error caused by this type of problem, check your installation and configuration setup.
See Chapter 2, ”Installation” beginning on page 29 for information on how to correctly install and
configure the library.
General drive errors usually result from a miscommunication between a library processor and a tape
drive processor, drive and tape interaction issues, or a mechanical malfunction within the library.
Both platform problems and general tape drive errors display an error message and a Fault
Symptom Code (FSC) on the GUI touch screen. Use an FSC to report errors to your authorized
service provider, or in some cases, to determine a recovery procedure.
The library depends on several other components to operate correctly. Errors that seem to be caused
by the library often are a result of issues on the host, the network cabling, or with the application
software. When troubleshooting the library, begin by ruling out these components.
Your application software may need to be reconfigured or, in some cases, reinstalled after you have
installed additional drives or slots into the library. Changing the number of magazines, number of
reserved slots, or changing between SDLT and Ultrium magazines will also require changes to the
software. Some application software may require the purchase of additional add-on components
and/or licenses when increasing the number of storage slots or drives. Contact your application
software provider for more information, or if newly installed storage slots are drives are not
recognized by your application software.
NOTE: The library numbers drives and slots beginning with 0. Your software application may
number these items beginning with 1. Be aware of this difference in numbering when
troubleshooting the library.
MSL6000 series tape library user guide 101
Performing Error Recovery
Figure 79 outlines the recommended steps for error recovery. You should follow this chart in all
cases. FSCs are listed in Table 10 on page 103. For general library problems, see ”Troubleshooting
General Problems” on page 135.

Fault Symptom Codes (FSCs)
An FSC is accompanied by a descriptive message and instructions for clearing the fault.
NOTE: If an error message appears that is not included in Table 10, write down the fault code
number and follow the recovery procedure. If the same error occurs again, contact your authorized
service provider. If you did not write down the fault code number, you can retrieve it from the error
log.

Library Performance
HP-UX host responds slowly, or crashes
after connecting to the library.
• Check the SCSI IDs of all devices on the host busses
to ensure there are no conflicts.
• Check that the application software does not require
SCSI IDs to be in a certain order.
• Contact your authorized service provider.
The library is not efficiently backing up
data.
• Check the network bandwidth from the target to the
host computer.
• Check that the library’s drives are on their own SCSI
bus, and not daisy-chained to another tape drive,
hard drive, or other high bandwidth device.
• Check that the server and file system have the
processing power and memory needed to stream the
tape drive.
• Ensure that other applications are not taking up
bandwidth from the backup server or target
workstations.
• Ensure the server has a fast enough file system (i.e.
RAID).
• Ensure that the drive is clean.
• Try a new tape. A marginal tape can cause
performance problems due to bad spots on the tape,
requiring retries.
• Ensure that the application software is using
fixed-length records (or blocks) to maximize
throughput, and has not defaulted to a smaller
record size. (64K should be sufficient.)
• Ensure that the data is being compressed, however
do not turn on both software and hardware
compression. (In most cases, hardware compression
should be enabled.)
• Check the size of the files. Backing up several small
files can impact performance.

Electrostatic Discharge
To prevent damage to the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up
the system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor can
damage system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage can reduce the life
expectancy of the device.
To prevent electrostatic damage, observe the following precautions:
• Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
• Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
• Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
• Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
• Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
Grounding Methods
There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling
or installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
• Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis.
Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ± 10 percent resistance in the
ground cords. To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
• Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet
when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
• Use conductive field service tools.
• Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an HP authorized
service provider install the part.
NOTE: For more information on static electricity, or for assistance with product installation, contact
your authorized service provider.

Configuration Examples
This appendix illustrates potential SCSI cabling configurations.
NOTE: For a more comprehensive set of SCSI cabling configurations, go to
http://www.hp.com/support.
NOTE: For step-by-step instructions on how to install and configure the library, see ”Cabling for
SCSI Configurations” on page 36.
SCSI Cable Configurations
Use the following guidelines when configuring your SCSI cables:
• Use the highest quality SCSI cables.
NOTE: Bus errors caused by excessive length or poor quality cables can significantly degrade
performance and reliability.
• Each of the tape drives in the library, and the library controller constitute a separate SCSI target.
When any two or more devices are connected to the same SCSI bus, each separate SCSI device
must be assigned a unique SCSI ID.
• SCSI IDs are set at the factory. Use the GUI touch screen to change any of the factory defaults.
• To connect a library to a host, the host must have at least one Wide LVD controller and the
appropriate driver software.
NOTE: The Single-Ended SCSI interface has a lower performance than LVD SCSI, and also has
shorter cable requirements.
• For optimal performance, do not attach more than two drives per SCSI bus.
NOTE: One drive per bus is HP’s recommended configuration. Two drives per bus is an
acceptable configuration for SDLT 1 and 2.

Optional Fibre Channel Card
The optional Fibre Channel card enables connectivity between MSL Series tape libraries and Fibre
Channel based Storage Area Networks (SANs). This allows the libraries to be attached to a
Switched Fabric.
This appendix includes the following sections:
• Host Prerequisites, page 167
• Connectors and Indicators, page 168
• Configuration, page 169
Host Prerequisites
To use Fibre Channel, check the host for the following:
• Fibre Channel backup software, host interface adapters, and associated device drivers.
• Host that acts as an initiator using the Fibre Channel controller to communicate with Fibre
Channel SCSI target devices.
• Backup application software with robust error recovery. Fibre Channel is an open system, similar
to LAN. Consequently, Fibre Channel is subject to data flow interruptions from power cycling,
connections, disconnections, and ESD charges.
NOTE: For a complete list of prerequisites and supported configurations, contact your HP sales
representative.

Configuration
For detailed configuration information, refer to the HP StorageWorks Network Storage Router User
Guide available on the MSL Series tape library documentation CD, or on the HP website at:
http://www.hp.com/support.
Before attempting to configure the Fibre Channel board, a basic understanding of Fibre Channel
and SCSI devices is recommended. For information on SCSI standards, refer to publications from
X3T10 committee of ANSI (American National Standards Institute). For more information on Fibre
Channel standards, refer to publications from the X3T11 committee of ANSI. To purchase approved
American National Standards and Technical Reports, contact ANSI at (212)642-4900.
Default Ethernet Settings
The basic factory default values are:
• IP address: http://1.1.1.1/
• Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
• Gateway address: 0.0.0.0
• User name: root
• Password: password
HP recommends that you change these values from the defaults.
All settings within the configuration are pre-set with default values. These values are set to allow the
Fibre Channel card into most HP environments with little or no configuration changes.
After changing the basic default values listed above, carefully consider any additional configuration
changes.
After the initial configuration is established, HP recommends backing up the configuration to an
external file via the FTP file transfer protocol option. If needed, during a recovery process, this file
can be restored back onto the router.
