Expanding 3584 robot on TSM

Expanding 3584 robot on TSM

I have a 3584 library, the server is an IBM p520 with AIX 5.3.11, and on the library door are a bunch of empty slots - I didn't count yet, but maybe 50 or so. The other side of the robot is packed full. I'd like to expand my library & use those slots; I have plenty of tapes. Any ideas where to look to get started in defining those slots as part of the tape library? Thanks all!

RE: Expanding 3584 robot on TSM

THanks, but no; I have 10 IO slots. This is 140 slots in the door next to the IO door and below it. No access from the outside.

You have to call IBM and get an expansion code to use them. Cost ??

RE: Expanding 3584 robot on TSM

Not sure if you purchased the library directly from IBM or a 3rd party, but IBM usually would review the serial number of your library and be able to provide you with the appropriate expansion options through a MES config.
