Why doesn't my Sun Solaris recognize an LTO or SDLT drive?

Version 1

    Cause: SDLT and LTO require a patch update that creates the device drivers. For older devices (DLT4000, DLT7, DLT8, and AIT), you can modify the st.conf file for Sun systems; however, for SDLT and LTO, you must install a patch that will create the drivers.

    Solution: Following are links to the Sun device patch upgrades for version 8 of Sun Solaris. Issues that might occur are tapes filling up and long inventories.
