5.0.5 tape drive issue - SCO

hello, I'm trying to install a scsi DAT tape drive on an SCO 5.0.5 but I'm getting an unexpected result. When I run the sconf -v command, I get the cha (it's on a compaq server) followed by 0 0 4 0. So, the scsi ID is 4, the rest are all 0's. I try to add the tape using the scoadmin, but at the end, it gives me 2 configs - a "0" and a "1". When I try to do the kernel re-linking, it fails! Why do I get 2 configs instead of just 1? # sconf -v ...

    Default 5.0.5 tape drive issue

    hello,
    I'm trying to install a scsi DAT tape drive on an SCO 5.0.5 but I'm
    getting an unexpected result.
    When I run the sconf -v command, I get the cha (it's on a compaq server)
    followed by 0 0 4 0. So, the scsi ID is 4, the rest are all 0's.
    I try to add the tape using the scoadmin, but at the end, it gives me 2
    configs - a "0" and a "1". When I try to do the kernel re-linking, it
    fails!
    Why do I get 2 configs instead of just 1?

    # sconf -v
    Srom wd 0 0 0 0
    Stp cha 0 0 4 0
    #

    Thanks,

    Oskar

    The two entries means that you have two scsi devices



    1 hard disk Srom ws controller 0 bus 0 id 0 lun 0

    1 stp tape type cha " 0 0 4 0



    take a look to the terminators and the device type you choose

    corresponds correctly with your scsi controller

    The relink fails with what error? I, for one, am not a mind reader:
    Give as much specific information as possible to give anyone reading
    this a shot at helping you.

    I don't understand what you mean by '2 configs' - Are you saying that
    you now have 2 tape drives configured? Show the output that gives you
    the '2 configs'.

    Huh?? The Srom entry indicates a CD-ROM drive, located on the Primary
    IDE channel, set as Master - Typical for an HPaq system. (The wd
    driver is IDE)
