Tape device not found

Specs: Open VMS 8.2
Tape drive COMPAQ SDLT320 on OPEN VMS V8.2 Alpha shows no such device available.
We have rebooted the system, and it still is not listed as any of the devices.

A bit more information is required:
Is it 'suddenly' disappearing, but was ok before ?
Is it a newly connected device ?
Is it the only device on it's SCSI bus/interface ?
If no, are the other devices on the same bus ok ?

The problem can be the interface, the cabling, the drive itself.

When checking cabling, powerdown etc., don't wait for VMS booted,
use the Alpha console (SRM):
>>>show device
>>>init (after any change in connection or powerstate)
