Linux – IBM LinTape driver

If you need to user ibm lto tape drive inside IBM, Adic, Dell tapelibrary, with Tivoli Storage Manager is necessary to use

Download latest driver from IBM Fixcentral:
Storage Systems => Tape Systems => Tape device drivers and software => Linux

Get two two RPMs (my system is an RHEL 5 on 32bit hardware) :
lin_tape-1.61.0-1.src.rpm <== Kernel module
lin_taped-1.61.0-rhel5.i386.rpm <== Binary services

First step, rebuild the source:

# rpmbuild --rebuild lin_tape-1.61.0-1.src.rpm

Installing lin_tape-1.61.0-1.src.rpm
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.625
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ rm -rf lin_tape-1.61.0
+ /bin/gzip -dc /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/lin_tape-1.61.0.tgz
[cut]
Wrote: /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/lin_tape-1.61.0-1.i386.rpm
Executing(%clean): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.18792
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ cd lin_tape-1.61.0
+ rm -rf /var/tmp/lin_tape-1.61.0-1-root-root
+ exit 0
Executing(--clean): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.18792
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ rm -rf lin_tape-1.61.0
+ exit 0

Second step, install all:

# rpm -Uhv /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/lin_tape-1.61.0-1.i386.rpm
# rpm -Uhv lin_taped-1.61.0-rhel5.i386.rpm

Last step, start service and check for the probed devices:

# /etc/init.d/lin_tape start

# cat /proc/scsi/IBM*
lin_tape version: 1.61.0
lin_tape major number: 253
Attached Changer Devices:

The error on planar was located on FAN module, for resolution unplug entire block and single fans, then replug into the planar after cleaning up, then power on your pSeries.
