Important Information

Dell PowerVault TL2000/TL4000 will change unique ID when the library firmware is upgraded from 5.80 or earlier to 6.60 or later. This change is a result of the IPv6 DOD implementation. As a result of the FIRMWARE upgrade the library will acquire a new IP address if set in DHCP mode; please ensure user has access to the library Operator Control Panel (OCP) in order to acquire the new DHCP address. This change will not affect libraries set for static IP addresses.
Dell PowerVault TL4000/2000 drive firmware release implemented Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS), The LT04 and LTO5 drive firmware now contains a digital signature. Drive firmware signature is transparent to the user and backup application. The signature provides protection against firmware or device tampering; as a result a firmware upgrade to an unsigned firmware version is prohibited. If you require assistance, please contact Dell technical support.
