    I can't do discover on my Solaris MA to find my SL500 TapeLib connected on qlc-hba. Found a thread on the forum to use the wa_sunqlc_add to fix the scsi devices. However, I can't find the WA-directory that is supposed to be under the installation-directory. And the CVGxWA is not installed and I don't know where to find it.  Running Simpana9 with SP2.

    Hi Patrik,

    yes it definitely sounds like you did not install the WA package onto the Solaris MA.   To see if this was installed you can run the "simpana status" command.  IT should list CVGxWA as an installed package.  Also in the install directory where the software is installed (typically /opt/simpana by default) there will be a WA and WA64 directory.  these contain the 32 abd 64 bit wa drivers.

    Please install this package (Either push from the CS if you have copied the packages to the cache) or install locally onto the mediaagent.  Don't forget to make sure to install the service pack (If it does not get installed with the package install)

    Thanks guys!  Actually I did read the documentation and I did run cvpkgadd from the media but I must have done something wrongbecause when I did it right now I found the WA-package directly, did install it and has configured my tape library :-)  Sorry for taking your time!
