NetApp Drive Definitions

I always forget the NetApp drive definitions so i thought I would post the example I found here so I can recall it later. If any of you wondered which definition TSM uses or would like to know why here is your answer:


rst4l - rewind device, format is: H Format 30 GB
nrst4l - no rewind device, format is: H Format 30 GB
urst4l - unload/reload device, format is: H Format 30 GB
rst4m - rewind device, format is: H Format 30 GB
nrst4m - no rewind device, format is: H Format 30 GB
urst4m - unload/reload device, format is: H Format 30 GB
rst4h - rewind device, format is: H Format 30 GB
nrst4h - no rewind device, format is: H Format 30 GB
urst4h - unload/reload device, format is: H Format 30 GB
rst4a - rewind device, format is: H Format 60 GB comp
nrst4a - no rewind device, format is: H Format 60 GB comp
urst4a - unload/reload device, format is: H Format 60 GB comp

The one is red is the definition TSM uses since it rewinds the tape, but leaves the unload/reload to TSM and not the device itself.
