Ensure that the tape drive is compatible with BEWS 10d
Shut down the server.
Connect the standalone tape drive to a NON-RAID controller.
Power on the tape drive and wait for it to come to a ready state.
Start the server.
Ensure that the tape drive shows in the windows device manager without any issues.
Run the tapeinst.exe to install the veritas drivers for the tape drive.
The tapeinst can be found in Program Files/veritas/NT
