can someone explain tpautoconf output

Created: 17 Apr 2013

Hi community,

can someone explain this tpautoconf -report_disc output:

These are two libraries with 10 drives each. TLD(0) TLD(1)

Server1:

 

=========== Missing Device or no local control path (Robot) ===========
 Defined as robotic TLD(0)
 Inquiry = "ADIC    Scalar i2000    617Q"
 Serial Number = ADIC273100566_LL0
 Robot Control Host = control host TLD(0)
 Drive = 1, Drive Name = Drive000, Serial Number = F002566001
 Hosts configured for this device:
  Host = Server1
=========== Missing Device or no local control path (Robot) ===========
 Defined as robotic TLD(1)
 Inquiry = "QUANTUM Scalar i6000    617Q"
 Serial Number = QUANTUM273100535_LL0
 Robot Path = {2,0,11,1}
 Robot Control Host = control host TLD(1)
 Drive = 2, Drive Name = Drive006, Serial Number = F002547007
 Hosts configured for this device:
  Host = Server1
 
Server2
 
  =========== Missing Device or no local control path (Robot) ===========
 Defined as robotic TLD(0)
 Inquiry = "ADIC    Scalar i2000    617Q"
 Serial Number = ADIC273100566_LL0
 Robot Control Host = control host TLD(0)
 Drive = 10, Drive Name = Drive010, Serial Number = F002566037
 Hosts configured for this device:
  Host = Server2
=========== Missing Device or no local control path (Robot) ===========
 Defined as robotic TLD(1)
 Inquiry = "QUANTUM Scalar i6000    617Q"
 Serial Number = QUANTUM273100535_LL0
 Robot Path = {2,0,11,1}
 Robot Control Host = control host TLD(1)
 Drive = 4, Drive Name = Drive008, Serial Number = F002547013
 Hosts configured for this device:
  Host = Server2
 

That the control path is missing is ok, since none of these servers is the robotic control host. The robotic is controlled throught the FC connection from drive1, this drive is zoned to the servers, so I assume thats why the robotic control is visible on all SSO media servers,

What I don't get is:

- Why is the line robot control host missing on server2 TLD(0)

- What does this line mean: For example on Server2 TLD(1)

 

 Drive = 4, Drive Name = Drive008, Serial Number = F002547013
 Hosts configured for this device:
  Host = Server2
 
Why is Drive4 mentioned in that line? 
 
Another example from server1 TLD(0) as you can see above.
 
 Drive = 1, Drive Name = Drive000, Serial Number = F002566001
 Hosts configured for this device:
  Host = Server1
 
Thanks in advance!
