Removable Storage Service - Disabling Dell DLT7000 Tape Library for Backup Exec 10d
Posted on 2006-04-22
Windows Server 2003 SP1 installed
Dell DLT7000 Autoloader (with all the latest firmware and drivers) - also known as ADIC FastStor
Adaptec 2944UW controlling above (with all latest firmware, BIOS, drivers)
Dell Poweredge 6450 Server
Ok, now that the prelims are out of the way, I have a small problem. I just purchased Symantec (Veritas) Backup Exec 10d and installed it on my 6450 using the DLT7000. I keep getting Event ID 15 "RSM cannot manage library Changer0. The database is corrupt." I've managed to track down a few possible answers. Whenever I disable RSM, Backup Exec works flawlessly. However, RSM for some reason also has something to do with the CDROM drive in the server (standard Dell CDROM). So, I don't know if I can simply disable RSM and call it a day or do I need it for the CDROM?
I tried to have the best of both worlds by following the instructions on Symantec's website about disabling the library via Computer Manager RSM snap-in. The problem is that when I uncheck "enable library" and click OK/Apply the check comes back. I have the giant red "X" next to the ADIC FastStor under Removable Storage. I looked in the registry to see if there was a way to disable JUST the library and leave the CDROM alone and I cannot find "Changer0" anywhere in the library where it has to do with RSM.
So, could someone PLEASE tell me how to disable JUST the tape library, allow RSM to manage my CDROM and still have Backup Exec work? Or give me options if I can't have my cake and eat it too.
