First thing - firmware is firmware (hardware) and drives are software components in the running OS. Please use the correct terms. Yup, read the release notes for each component and find out if it depends on a specific firmware version of another component. Make sure that the CMC (Chassis Management Controller) in the chassis itself is also considered when ...


No, this is not possible. Citing Wikipedia: An Ultrium drive reads data from a cartridge in its own generation and at least the two prior generations. An Ultrium drive writes data to a cartridge in its own generation and to a cartridge from the immediate prior generation in the prior generation format.

Well, I ended up figuring out what the problem was (but now on to a new problem, will post a new question).
