And then you can take the spacer out of the left magazine and use all

Subject: Re: How to upgrade firmware on a 3573-L2U tape drive

On the FTP page, the 73P5 though 89B2 entries are various versions of
tape drive firmwares. The L3 & L4 indicate LTO3 or 4. The next letter
is the connect type (F=Fibre, S=SCSI, A=SAS). If there's an H after
that letter, that's firmware for a half-height drive. So if you have a
Fibre LTO4 that isn't half-height, the latest firmware would be 89B2L4F.
Get the tar or zip version; whichever is appropriate for you. Tar is
for Unix/AIX.

After the firmware has been applied, get the for the
library firmware.
