Linux RHEL4.8: st1: Block limits 1 - 16777215 bytes. Do i need to care of it?


Hello all
This is my first post on LinuxQuestions.org .
I am quite new in Linux and may ask basic questions.

I have installed LTO4 tape drives, they have been recognized automatically after a reboot.
When i use them, i have the following message in /var/adm/message:
st1: Block limits 1 - 16777215 bytes

Do i need to care about it, or do i have to increase this limit?
BTW, i have no idea on how to do this.
thanks for your help.
Pierre

well rhel 4 is "before our time" for a some of us

so be patient . It is an old BUT supported OS

did you call red hat or use your PAID FOR tech support ?
RHEL is not free .
