Hello Experts,

My windows 2000 server has a dds3 tape backup unit installed (scsi)

I have been successfully using it for some time until I installed the trial version of Veritas backup exec v9.1.  The trial didn't let me see network drives, so I gave up and un-installed it.

Now, going back to msbackup, I can no longer see any tapes. The error I get:-

  There is no unused media available with the selected drive.  Looking around the net,  the feeling that its to do with mounting the tapes....I am at a loss...please help.

Hi all,

I have fixed this problem...So in case anyone else needs the answer...

In Remote Storage Manager, I had noticed that my tape device had been disabled.  
Computer management, removable storage, the backup device,drive....right click and check the enable box.

In case you should also remember that BackupExec Works completely compatible with msbackup.. you should check the inventory of Remote Storage Manager.. and you should prepare tapes for backup. it shoult work..
