It is indeed, IBM Ultrium-TD2, which is a drive explicitly supported by
the Sun ST driver. I have not had to use proprietary drivers for it
previously; it Just Works.
A thought that just occured to me a few minutes ago while looking at
st.conf: By default, only targets 0-6 are enabled in st.conf, and
targets 8-14 are commented out. My tape drive is target 8. Is it at
all possible that for some broken reason, devfsadm is ALSO only looking
at targets 0-6?
