Windows 2003 Server Standard locks up accessing tape drive
Posted on 2006-04-25
I have an odd problem on a Windows 2003 Standard Server.
I'm trying to use an IDE Iomega REV35 drive.
Whenever I try to access the drive, it completely locks the server up. The only thing I can do is hit the reset button.
I tried putting the drive in an external USB Enclosure and still have the same problem.
I have had the drive replaced two times.
I have reloaded the Iomega software also.
I have used the same drive, and cable on a XP Pro machine and it works with no problem.
Is there anything I can check on the server?
The server has an Intel mainboard with a SCSI Controller running mirrored hard drives.
I have contacted IOmega and they suggested replacing the drive, i had it replaced and the first replacement would not work at all, the second is working but still locking up the server.
