Thanks to Wesley W Garland who provided me with the answer I needed to have
Solaris 8 recognize the tape robotics and create device files. I needed to
edit the /kernel/drv/sgen.conf file and uncomment the scsi targets to scan.

Original message:

Is anyone running a HP Surestore 2/20, 4/40, or 6/60 under solaris 8? If

Using probe-scsi-all detects the robotics (target 0)

There is no /devices/pci.../scsi@3,1/ entry or /dev entry for the robotics.

I need to know how to get this thing running and HP support is no help at
