Step 3: Storage Hardware - Drives and Loaders

During installation SEP sesam checks the SCSI-connected storage devices and enters their data into its database. This auto-detection works for most devices, but for certain types of loaders the connection between a loader and the drives cannot be recognized automatically. Such devices must be manually verified and entered into the configuration.

To enter devices manually, go to Main selection -> Components -> Loaders. Each loader is marked and its properties are entered. By clicking OK the device is entered into the configuration. It is highly recommended to set the "Automatic Unload" function to 'NO'.

When using Windows, the hardware must be recognized correctly by the operating system in the Windows Device Manager (must not be shown as Unknown Medium Changer) before SEP sesam is installed!

For drives, an analog procedure is applied. You can view the properties of each drive in the Main selection -> Components -> Drives -> Drive groups. The default drive group is Tape drives.

If the drive characteristics in the field Loader states No Loader but should be serviced by an autoloader, the drive was not recognized/configured properly. You can enter this drive into the configuration location by selecting OK.

The first drive in the loader is Drive 0. If there are more drives in the loader, they will be numbered sequentially.
