About SCSI and FCP robotic controls on Solaris
When you configure the NetBackup sg driver, a NetBackup script creates the device files for the attached robotic devices.
If you use device discovery in NetBackup, NetBackup discovers the robotic control device files in the /dev/sg directory (and hence the devices) automatically. If you add a robot manually in NetBackup, you must enter the pathname to the device file.
Examples are available.
