.SH TAPE LIBRARY SUPPORT
CASTOR supports two types of tape libraries, SCSI compatible ones and Oracle
Automatic Cartridge System (ACS) ones. The tapeserverd daemon requires a tape
library daemon to be installed and run on the same tape server as itself.
There are two types of CASTOR tape library daemons, one for SCSI compatible tape
libraries and one for ACS tape libraries.
A SCSI compatible tape library requires the following daemon:
\fBrmcd\fP
The installation RPM for the \fBrmcd\fP daemon and its manual page is:
\fBcastor-rmc-server-2.1.15-XX.slc6.x86_64\fP
The \fBrmcd\fP daemon can be started, stopped and its status queried using
the usual service commands:
\fBservice rmcd start\fP
.br
\fBservice rmcd status\fP
.br
\fBservice rmcd stop\fP
An ACS tape library requires the following daemon:
\fBacsd\fP
The installation RPM for the \fBacsd\fP daemon and its manual page is:
\fBcastor-acs-server-2.1.15-17.slc6.x86_64\fP
The \fBacsd\fP daemon can be started, stopped and its status queried using
the usual service commands:
\fBservice acsd start\fP
.br
\fBservice acsd status\fP
.br
\fBservice acsd stop\fP
Even though there is a separate daemon for each of the supported tape library
types, there is a single generic set of command-line tools for mounting and
un-mounting tapes:
\fBcastor-tape-mediachanger-mount\fP
.br
\fBcastor-tape-mediachanger-dismount\fP
The installation RPM for these command-line tools and their manual pages is:
\fBcastor-tape-developer-tools-2.1.15-XX.slc6.x86_64\fP
