In order to provide maximum performance and reliability, it is recommended that the latest version of microcode is installed on your IBM LTO tape devices. SCSI cables and appropriate interposers, as required, should be ordered for attachment to a server. Other volumes such as backupset tapes, export volumes, and database backups will not be encrypted using the Application method. In some cases, the hardware product may have been previously installed. For more information on setting up your hardware environment to use drive encryption, refer to your hardware documentation. Exception on allocate buffer. If no cable is available, one should be specified on the initial order for each library.

During a write filemark an FSC is experienced When running Diags the drive must clear all reservations when taking the port offline Fix for an infinite loop retry breakage- When incorrect setup on the EKM causes a retry, the drive will stop retrying after 3 incorrect keys with correct alias are returned When media is partially ejected and power is pulled, there is a small possibility for a hang in the drive on power up During an SME usage where the EKM is removed from the network, the drive can post an SCD’3′ On an attempt to mount, the drive fails the mount and incorrectly reported a FSC 2C51 ADI drive communication failure during internal library check.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.

These firmware updates are intended to, among other ultrlum, increase overall reliability, improve tape handling, further reduce any possibility of data errors, and provide continued enhancements to diagnostic capabilities. The IBM tape device driver has two installers: IBM ulfrium products are manufactured from new parts, or new and used parts.


Handle internal transfer error if no class3 error recovery is enabled on the host interface. Channel improvement for Calibrations U In order to restore your data, you must have the correct database backup and corresponding encryption keys to access your information.

Document information More support for: Tivoli Storage Manager does not support an environment in which some drives use the Application method and some drives use another method of encryption. Encryption Enhancement Fail Safe function for unexpected key transition.

Installing the IBM tape driver for Windows

Tape device encryption provides security for data on individual tapes and protects sensitive information that may be transported off-site. In some cases, the hardware product ulrtium have been previously installed. Product Positioning The new IBM Ultrium Tape Drive is an excellent solution for customers who use tape or require a larger-capacity or higher-performance tape backup.

Before you install the tape device driver, ensure that the following tasks are completed: With this method, encryption keys are managed by the application, u,trium this case, Tivoli Storage Manger. Mode page offline should be only for the primary port. Customers are responsible for obtaining the appropriate SCSI adapters, cables, and interposers if required for system attachment.

To ubm this method, the parameter must be set to ON. Use the following when defining device classes for LTO-4 drives: Contact and feedback Need support?

Development has insured that all previous fixes are in the 7A31 code level or later so there should be no reason to back level to an earlier code level. If you enable another method of encryption, backups will fail. Stop dispatched login timer request with valid id, Some vendor libraries may lose communication ADI – Drive was not clearing a timer ultgium resending the port login command – this is changed to meet spec and has limited field presence.

IBM 3580 Ultrium Tape Drive Offers High Capacity and Performance

The server is powered on. Other volumes, for example, backup sets, export volumes, and database backup volumes will not be encrypted.

It features data compression hardware which provides an effective capacity of up to GB and an effective transfer rate of up to 30 MB per second, depending on the characteristics of the data transferred. Country organizations are listed on the Web at: Updating this parameter will affect empty volumes only.

Separate FSC by error reason Write File Mark timeout – Drive code has problem when host send overlapped command in unbuffered mode write. Publications The following publications are shipped with the product. Fix 1MB write permanent errors in u mode Enhancement to avoid ibn drive reset when a corrupt index is detected Read Performance Enhancement for ArcServ Enhance bias calibration in channel Enhancement to channel calibration algorithm Change of reporting SCD’A’ – Code will now bim check clean cycle.

The educational allowance may not be added to any other discount or allowance.

To ensure that data for off-site volumes is protected, IBM tape encryption technology is available.
