Somehow I am not able to set up a tape by hand (i.e. compared to using 

First I setup the target (using the shortcut options, e.g -t etc):

tgtadm -L iscsi -m target -o new -t 1 -T iqn.2008-09.com.example:server.tape

So far so good.

Now I add a tape unit:

tgtadm -L iscsi -m logicalunit -o new -t 1 -l 1 -b /root/tapes/notape -Y 

(where notape is just an empty file)
I get the respone:

tgtadm: invalid request

When I remove the -Y tape option, it works but I get the standard type 
of disk.

Where did I go wrong here?

Thanks for any advice,
