"Physical Locations" missing from Computer Management console in 2003. Can't prepare DDS for backup...

We have recently upgraded our backup server to 2003. Now, having to recreate our tape backup sets, I go into Computer Management > Storage > Removable Media... and "Physical Locations" is gone!

All I have under "Removable Media" is: -Media, Media Pools, Libraries, Work Queue and Operator Requests.

I have not been able to properly configure the backup without access to the tools I usually use in "Physical Locations," nor allocate or dealocate the media.

Do I have to add a snap-inn to a mmc?

I'm using a SONY SDT-10000 SCSI Sequential Device for the 4mm DDS tape backup with Servers 2003's NTBackup.

What gives?

Thanks, but I haven’t gotten any error messages and the article pertains specifically to a corrupt database on server 2k.

I've checked, and the "Physical Locations" portion of Computer Management isn't available on any of the 5 servers we have, all Win 2k3. I can't believe that they all have a corrupt database as they were installed from 3 different MS Partner CDs. (But I'm not ruling anything out with MS!)

There must be something I'm missing in the process of NTBackup on 2003. I'm gonna dig deeper.

Thanks.

I looked on my 2003 server and all of my drives show under Libraries.  My media shows under Media and Media Pools.  I think they removed Physical Locations in 2003.
