Abstract

Disclosed is a process for a server or an application running on a host, such as the AS/400* or ES/9000*, to communicate to a device through a library control path and to the same device on a 370/390 channel, for the purpose of controlling the library. The configuration is dynamically determined by the application, which in the first implementation is the Media Library Device Driver on the AS/400.
