That there is an IOP OK. The FC #2844 is the IOP. As long as you are not changing hardware you'll be fine.

The drive you have being a SCSI attached one is unsupported on POWER 7. See this link for useful information:

The MTU talks about tape library devices getting a new resource name when
V7R1 is installed *IF* that tape library device is attached via an IOPLess

Not being a big hardware guy, I wasn't sure. I have a Power 5 520.

My keen eye detected the following in WRKHDWRSC:

CMB06 2844-001 Operational Combined function IOP
DC04 5702-001 Operational Storage Controller
TAPMLB01 3581-028 Operational Tape Library

The magic character string "IOP" in there is a dead giveaway, isn't it?
