3494, 2 tape drives, TTY lmcp, SCSI connection to two
SP2 nodes, ethernet connected.
Trying to set up a tape library, which is attached
to an sp2 wide node.
The software on the node is:
Atape.driver 18.104.22.168 COMMITTED IBM AIX Enhanced Tape and
atldd.driver 22.214.171.124 COMMITTED IBM Automated Tape Library
mtlib -l /dev/lmcp0 -q S -v
Performing Query Statistical Data using /dev/lmcp0
Query operation Error - Library is Offline to Host.
Obtain tcpip address and fully qualified host name of rs6k.
then go to os/2 machine and
Open service menu at library manager.
(If prompted for password, try "service")
Open Utilities->Service Window
Ping rs6k from library manager.
At library manager, use host command to obtain fully qualified
name of rs6k host.
At rs6k, check content of /etc/ibmatl.conf.

At rs6k, kill and restart library manager daemon.
At rs6k, Verify communication using mtlib.
mtlib -l /dev/lmcp0 -qL
At rs6k Verify library device numbers for installed devices.
tapeutil -f/dev/rmt0 mtdevice
Query list of devices from library manager.
mtlib -l /dev/lmcp0 -D
Make sure library manager is in auto mode.
(is in auto mode)
Host is running DNS. The library manager doesn't have the
DNS fully qualified name. Customer removed the host name and
re-installed using the full DNS name and aliased to short host.
(mtlib now works!)
