machine doesn't know it has a tape drive

We just received a 3675 as a donation from a local company. When we
try to read a tape (for instance during a Restore Distribution) we
get a message that says:
"There is no magnetic tape hardware on HOST"
But there *is*. And it's registered as a service in the host's
namespace object. Anybody have a clue what the message means?
What tape specification are you using? What kind of magnetic tape
hardware are you using? Maybe you're saying to use the 9-track tape
drive when all you have is a cartridge tape drive?
When specifying the tape device, make sure you say
host:0 ;; Or whatever is appropriate.
if you mean cartridge tape or 9-track tape, respectively.
