Half height drive's are likely to show and Error E on boot as they should be in library mode
Full height is more likely, you would have to remove the loop back connector on the back of the drive and turn off dip5 and turn on dip1.
In most cases you can use a LTO drive from a library as a standalone drive. As tapelibraryfixer stated you might get some unexpected behavior as the drive might be looking for the library.
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
