Re: What's wrong with this picture?



fixed

I've seen something similar to this (duplicate device names) when
there is more than one NWSD and the devices aren't restricted on
either of them.

I've also ended up with additional devices on the guest when restoring
storage spaces; seems like the old devices get restored and new ones
get created based on the virtual scsi connections.

I managed to clean some of it up by deleting the descriptions, varying
off the NWSD allocated for tape, then varying it back on.

Dunno which, or if any of this applies in your situation but for what
it's worth...

TAP03 3580 CREATED BY AUTO-CONFIGURATION

TAP04 3580 CREATED BY AUTO-CONFIGURATION


This is only one object in QSYS with the name TAP03 however.

Any attempt to vary it on results in CPD8EB4 "Device vary on failed."

Deleting one of them also deleted the other.

Curious.....
