When adding a tape library/drive to NetVault (HPUX) a long delay is encountered until the device is displayed.
When selecting a NetVault node by accessing "Device Management > Add Library > Library Selection" to add a tape library or drive, the list of available devices takes a long time to display.
1. Delete all the device files in /dev/nvscsi/
2. Modify mksctlnodes.sh to include only the necessary SCSI-ID and LUN to scan (see (a) - (b) below)
3. Execute the script to create the device files
4. Make sure only the relevant device files exist in /dev/nvscsi
(a) Locate the lines the contain "for SCSI_ID in 0 1" and "for LUN_ID in 0 1"
(b) Modify these lines to contain a space-delimited list of the LUN-IDs to scan; here are some examples -
for SCSI_ID in 0 1 2 3 4 5 6
for LUN_ID in 0 1 2 3
