python 06406-xxx works with NTBackup but not with Veritas 9.1

I have a python 06406-xxx that came with our dell 2600 server.  The server was windows 2000 but we have now re-installed with 2003.  The tape drive works fine when using windows drivers with ntbackup but if I use Veritas with or without there drivers it wont even use the tape. It sees the tape but it wont inventory eject or anything its just dead with Veritas.  The version we are using is 9.1 with sp2.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Also when the system was 2000 we where using the Veritas version that came with the Dell server.  It worked fine and the version was 8.something. I tried loading on 2003 but it didn’t want work either? Thanks for you help.

Try disabling the "removable storage" service.

Try downloading the latest drivers from Veritas: http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/273853.htm
Then go into Tools - Wizards - Device Wizard and re-install the drivers for the tape drive.

I should probably point out that according to the Veritas HCL: http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/271382.htm, your drive is no longer explicitly supported under BackupExec - although that doesn't mean it won't work. You can try loading the Windows drivers (using Computer Management) and see how you go with that.

Uninstall the software, Blow the Veritas directory away, reinstall the latest software

I'd mail Veritas Tech support to check if the drive is supported or not: http://support.veritas.com/. It's absence from the HCL suggests that it isn't.

If the drive isn't supported in BE, then I'm afraid you may be out of luck...
