  • Controller with correct block size for LTFS

    Hi, What is the LTFS 'driver' you use for this? Some LTFS version provide a mode for supporting the buggy HBA. This helps time to time with some. It can be worst to try . Here is one version of LTFS i can recommend to use, and a link to an explanation about the Buggy HBA mode: https://github.com/LinearTapeFileSystem/ltfs/wiki/HBA-info And link to issue of user having potential similar problem https://github.com/LinearTapeFileSystem/ltfs/issues/144
  • Alternative to using LTFS on LTO ?

    I think IBM are actually the ones writing the reference implementation that HP and everyone else are basing their LTFS drivers on, so the compatibility list includes more than just IBM drives. In a production environment you'll probably be using the vendor software in any case. But I built the reference implementation on my home machine previously and it worked fine. https://github.com/LinearTapeFileSystem/ltfs

    There is also a fair amount of energy going into the reference ltfs implementation, which I’ve yet to try properly: https://github.com/LinearTapeFileSystem/ltfs I suspect using this version would be a good idea in the long term.
  • LTFS on CentOS 6?
    1 project | /r/sysadmin | 8 Dec 2022
    Is LTFS (including "mkltfs") on any repo? Is CentOS 6 still supported? The IBM docs suggest RHEL6 was supported. I found an LTFS GitHub, but of course it says CentOS 7+ is needed. It doesn't show support for newer Linux releases, though (CentOS9/RHEL9, Ubuntu 20/22, Debian 10/11, etc.), so I'm not sure if there is a better source for LTFS.

  • LTO Tape data storage for Linux nerds

    I recently purchased a LTO-5 drive for my Gentoo-based NAS and have a few key takeaways for those who are interested. Don't buy a HP tape drive if you want to use LTFS on Linux! HPE Library & Tape Tools is prety much dead on modern Linux. Official support is only for RHE 7.x and a few versions of Suse. Building from source is a dependency nightmare that will leave you pulling hair. IBM drives have much better Linux support thanks to https://github.com/LinearTapeFileSystem/ltfs. That being said, IMO, you should consider ditching LTFS for good ol' TAR! It's been battle tested since 1979 and can be installed on basically anything. TAR is easy to use, well documented, and makes way more sense for linear filesystems. While drag&drop is nice and all, it really does not make sense for linear storage.
