I am trying to install an external Quantum SDLT320 drive on SLES9 x86-64. It is connected through an HP SCSI card (LSI MPT Fusion chipset).

I get Device or resource busy whenever I try to do anything:

# mt -f /dev/st0 status
mt: /dev/st0: Device or resource busy

Snippets from dmesg:

Fusion MPT base driver 3.01.14.23

st0: try direct i/o: yes (alignment 512 B), max page reachable by HBA 4503599627370495

Any ideas? What else should I try?
