Anyone install a tape drive in a G3v2 ?

Anyone install a tape drive in a G3v2 ?

Anyone install a tape drive in a G3v2 ?

Just wondering what the procedure is.
Power down, unseat card, insert new card and power up ?
Or is there more ?
I checked Avaya web site for maintenance docs but they are either very hard to find or not there.

Thanks for your help.

I believe in a sys 75 you could hot swap the RMSS tape unit, you may want to power it down so that you don't get a gazillion alarms, either way you want to make sure you have a good translations tape.  First check here for the docs:

Thanks, I'll let you know how I make out.

RE: Anyone install a tape drive in a G3v2 ?

I did it long time back & if I remmember it correctly,
In system 75, if you have a duplicated system, you can takeout/change the tape dripe of the standby SPE without powering it down, however if you take out the tape drive of the active SPE , it would give a reset to the system.
Don't forget to follow the change procedure for changing the control card(select switch.....)

Best of Luck..
