I installed a copy of Backup Exec 12.5 for Windows on a virtual machine which is on VMWare ESXi 4.
On this virtual machine, I can see the tape drive called IBM.... actually it is a DELL Powervault 124T LTO4 tape drive with a SAS controller card installed on this VMware host.
I can label my tape in Backup Exec installation but when I tried to run a backup job. I got the following error.
Error : e00084ee - An invalid command was sent to the storage device.
And when I inspect the system log, I got this too...
Adamm Mover Error: GetDriveInfo Failure!
Error = ERROR_GEN_FAILURE
Drive = "IBM 1"
Media = "LTO4-01"
Read Mode: SingleBlock(0), ScsiPass(0)
Write Mode: SingleBlock(1), ScsiPass(1)
How can I fix it?
