Hi,

I just installed an adaptec SCSI controller card into Poweredge 2650 server
and connected a new Dell tape backup unit to it.  Install seemed to go fine
and card was recognized on startup.

Anyone know the linux RH 8 command(s) for checking to see if tape drive is
recognized by system and writable?  Maybe a write test command?

Thanks
