NAME

na_cloned_tapes - list of nonqualified tape drives attached to the filer

SYNOPSIS

/etc/cloned_tapes

DESCRIPTION

If you attach a tape drive that Network Appliance has not tested with the filer, enter information about the tape drive in the /etc/cloned_tapes file. This file enables the filer to register the drive as a clone of a qualifed drive.

If the filer boots with a nonqualified tape drive and the /etc/cloned_tapes file does not exist, the filer creates a sample file, when the first "mt" command for the tape is executed.

Each entry in the /etc/cloned_tapes file corresponds to one tape drive. Specify the entry in one of the following formats:

clone_vendor_id clone_product_id EMULATES vendor_id product_id

clone_product_id EMULATES product_id

The "storage show tape supported" command provides a list the product_id and vendor_id values of qualified drives.

EXAMPLE

The following entry in the /etc/cloned_tapes file enables the filer to register the Quantum DLT9000 tape drive, which has not been tested with the filer, as a clone of the Quantum DLT7000 tape drive:

QUANTUM DLT9000 EMULATES QUANTUM DLT7000
