Only if you also are installing a tape controller.

If you're connecting it to an existing tape controller, you don't have
to power down.  I'd suggest turning on auto config if it's not already
on and letting it create the devd for you.

Subject: 3581 & SCSI connection

I just received a 3581 tape drive and will attach it via a SCSI
connection to a model 820. Do I need to power down the iSeries when
performing this connection?
