I have a server running 2000 server with a sony tape drive installed for backups utilizing veritas software.
When I go to physical locations the tape drive has a red circle with a white cross in the middle and the backup is now not working. What does this mean?
Can anyone help

Regard's,

Paul

Greetings paulmctiernan,
Veritas Backup Exec or is it NetBackup?
Probably gone off-line (could be hardware failure)....

Try this - go to the device tab and right-click the device/choose properties.
Deselect the "enable drive for backup" -click ok
Now right-click and delete it.

Now, open up device manager (start/run/devmgmt.msc)
and find the drive there and uninstall it.
Reboot.

Windows should reinstall the driver and Veritas should as well.  
Post back...
