cannot see seagate dat scsi tape drive from device manager on 2003 server
Posted on 2006-04-28
My client got a strange problem that seagate dat scsi tape drive stopped working yesterday. It's running on windows 2003 server. And and I cannot see it from device manager or removeable storage. Even brightstore backup software cannot see it anymore. brightstore could see it before.
I view the device manager, there is no conflict, the SCSI adapter LSI logic that connects to the tape drive is working fine. I can load/unload the tape from the tape drive. I tried add new hardware wizard, it cannot find new hardware. I rebooted the server, trying add new hardware wizard, still cannot find new hardware.
So is the tape drive broken? Any ideas are welcome.
