NOTE: If upgrading from a version of firmware below 160G.GS007, you need to upgrade to 160G.GS007 before upgrading to later versions.
NOTE: The maximum number of drives supported in Scalar i40 and i80 is reduced when using LTO-7 drives.
- For Scalar i40 libraries with the LTO-7 drive, a maximum of one drive is supported (rather than the normal two) if surge protection is not used.
- Two drives (LTO7 and any other drive including LTO7) are supported if a surge suppression circuit with a minimum rating of 2500 Joules is used.
- For Scalar i80 libraries with the LTO-7 drive, a maximum of three drives is supported (rather than the normal five). This maximum applies even if you are using other drives in conjunction with the LTO-7 drive, such as using a combination of LTO-7, LTO-6, and LTO-5 drives.
NOTE: The library firmware bundle includes only HP drive code. IBM drive code is not currently included in the library firmware bundle, so needs to be downloaded and loaded to the library separately. Click the IBM Drive Firmware below to begin the download. A library firmware update will remove IBM firmware from the library, so it will need to be re-installed after a firmware upgrade.
