Let me repeat what Chuck said:
Be sure to /IPL/ the device by using: VRYCFG RESET(*YES)

If your tape IOP (since you're running V5R4 I assume you're still using
IOPs) is not on any disk IOP then you can also try:
WRKHDWRSC *STG
You should see
IOP
IOA
Tape device
Record the IOP. Make sure it only has tape.
STRSST
1. Start a service tool
7. Hardware service manager
Find it by drilling down into packaging resources. Use option 3 to
perform concurrent maintenance. Power off the domain. Power it back on.
Basically does everything that a physical IPL does to the card, except
maybe apply PTF's. Non disruptive to other users. I used to have to do
this quite often on troublesome tape drives. Of course, you have to vary
it off first.

I can't remember if V5R4 supported WRKPTFGRP. If so, you may want to
compare it with
http://www-912.ibm.com/s_dir/sline003.NSF/GroupPTFs?OpenView&Start=1&Count=30&Expand=4#4

You should have the current:
hiper
security
db2
tcp
java
backup
So order those. And also order the cume, SF99540. You can see if you're
current by seeing if '2094' is listed in DSPPTF for 57##999 or 57##SS1.

Well, you may not need java and what not, but I'd definitely get the hiper
and backup. If you order a cume you'll also get a copy of hiper and DB2.
See SNDPTFORD. If you're really behind expect this to take a LONG time.
Like, maybe fire it up before going home, (providing no nightly process
will kill that).
