DLT7000 emulation..

Mark Harvey

DLT7000 - brings back memories..
An oldie but a goodie.. Perhaps not the leader tape breaking but still a popular drive if you didn't mind waiting the 2 1/2 minutes to load a tape..

I've just finished pushing to git a couple of patches which add DLT7000 drive emulation. Minus the 'broken tape leader' feature & 2 1/2 minute load times.

Interested to see if anybody wants to test :)

Mark,

Which barcode suffix can be used for this type ? what about density in mktape ?

Thanks

Mark,

Density for the DLT7000 was not included in mktape ? Is it of the same type as DLT4?

# mktape
Usage: mktape -l lib -m PCL -s size -t type -d density
       Where 'size' is in Megabytes
             'type' is data | clean | WORM
             'PCL' is Physical Cartridge Label (barcode)
             'lib' is Library number
             'density' can be on of the following:
           AIT1     AIT2     AIT3     AIT4
           DDS1     DDS2     DDS3     DDS4
           DLT3     DLT4
           SDLT1    SDLT220  SDLT320  SDLT600
           LTO1     LTO2     LTO3     LTO4
           LTO5     LTO6
           T10KA    T10KB    T10KC
           9840A    9840B    9840C    9840D
           9940A    9940B
           J1A      E05      E06


dump_tape shows the following:

Media density code: 0x1b
Media type code   : 0x2e
Media description : DLTtape IV

Yes.. DLT7000 & DLT8000 use DLT IV media (DLT4)
DLT4000 drives use DLTIII media (DLT3)

Never understood why Quantum did that...
