SBS 2003 Could Not Detect Tape Drive
Posted on 2004-09-19
I recently upgraded to SBS 2003 from W2K Server. I previously used ArcServe for system backups, with an ARCHIVE Python tape drive in a Dell PowerEdge system. I uninstalled ArcServer, wishing to use the SBS 2003 backup instead. Now when I run the backup wizard, SBS says it "Could not detect a tape drive."
When looking in device manager, the tape drive appears to work normally, is enabled, and has an updated driver. Any idea why SBS would not detect this drive? Is it possible there is something from ArcServer that is still "reserving" the drive?
