An internal drive or an external drive/library connected by SAS will show
up
as a virtualized stand alone tape device only.

The tape library function only virtualizes well in a VIOS/NPIV environment
which by definition is a fibre connection.

I actually meant was it showing as a tape library device or a standalone
tape device (i.e. TAPMLB01 vs TAP01)

Man this sounds familiar....
How does the tape drive look on the hosting partition ?

Not sure what you're asking but just did nightly backups without
issues (after I varied it back on on the hosting partition).

Try setting the alternate install device. Bypass the select buss

DST doesn't find it even if I F13 to bypass bus selection.

One more thought. MAKE REALLY sure the tape device is VARIED OFF
on
the
hosting partition

I tried it both ways. I'm glad it really is supposed to be simple.
Less glad that I can't copy a .log file or a .config file for
another set of eyes to scan.

Thanks for confirming that the book is right. Now it's a matter of
Really Looking at it and making sure I have all the matches matching.
