I have a Quantum VS160 tape drive which operates but only very slowly. I believe this is because the /var/sysgen/master.d/scsi file is not configured for this drive type.
I am operating this as an external drive on an Origin 200 + Irix 6.5.20
Does anyone have configuration file details that will enable support of this drive type and what else, if anything, is needed to get this working at it's optimum speed

Hello,

Any tape drive past the DLT iV is requiring to use a "tape daemon"
requiring a license depending on the tapedrive used... to use at full speed.

on ps -ef you have line like :
/usr/etc/ts/tslto SEAGATE ULTRIUM06242-XXX /hw/tape/tps6d1reqt
for a seagate LTO1 drive for example.
Started by /etc/init.d/ts

It is provided by a cd called APD (here APD 2.7 for 6.5.24)
The commercial name is personality daemon.
