Backup Exec 2010 - IBM TS3100 library HELP!!!!!
Posted on 2011-05-09
I cannot for the life of me get Backup Exec 2010 on Server 2008 r2 with the TS3100 physically attached (SAS) to move a tape to the I/O Station, and then unlock/eject the I/O station.
In fact, there's no option in the TS3100 web interface (that I've found) to open just the I/O station. I have I/O Station enabled under the Configuration option. If i unlock the entire left magazine and pull it out, I see there is a physical switch I can push that pops just the I/O station, but that button is inside the chassis with the magazine inserted - so it *must* be a mechanical process to pop the I/O station.
Assuming I can even get the I/O station to eject, I then need Backup Exec to finish a backup job, put the tape in the I/O station and release/unlock/eject the I/O Station.
Apparently it was easier to find Bin Laden than to accomplish this seemingly trivial task.
