RE: Two partitions, one tape drive

5638 sounds familiar. I'll check this out when I can get connected.

If you vary it off on one lpar, you should see it go live on the other. I
have a 57CB storage controller, the device is a 5638 lto drive and it works
this way, again your model and setups may be different.

List,

A client of mine just got a new machine that their now infamous software
vendor ordered for them. It is divided into two partitions, and has one
tape
drive.

I don't have access to it right now, but their vendor told them to just
configure a virtual tape drive and they could then toggle the tape between
the two partitions.

I told them that this wasn't the purpose of the virtual tape feature, but
I
have never actually set up a box with this configuration. Google is
showing
me stuff dated around 2005. Any pointers?

Thanks
