HP DLT VS160 Tape Drive and Veritas 9
Posted on 2006-05-01
On Windows 2000 server. Received my tape drive for my HP 370 server and popped that puppy in. I did not change any of the jumpers and put it in as is. I first loaded the tape drive using the hp drivers to test it and it worked. I also ran HP's tape drive software one night and ran a successful backup. Now I want to use veritas 9 as I have done in the past. I have loaded all the patches for veritas 9 from their website and used the 'WIZARDS" in Veritas to change the drivers to VERITAS drivers. It comes back and says it is successful but when I look at the drivers for the HP tape drive they are still HP's( on my other servers - it shoes that VERITAS drivers are loaded). I have used add/ remove hardware to take the drive out, not load any drivers and use VERITAS WIZARDS again to load Veritas drivers. Still comes up HP drivers. I dont konw if this is actually the problem or part of the problem.
When I start Veritas it looks like the job starts ok, but then it just sits there and counts down and will keep on doing this but doest create a backuup. I have tried backing up one(1) file and also backing up directories --- I can get through to veritas withought spending a fortune.......Thanks
