I'm having problems getting this working properly. We currently have the autoloader which was originally setup to use data protector express. The original IT guy who worked here only put a trial version on the system. I have since installed Symantec Backup Exec 2010 but keep getting errors no matter what I do. I already have a full backup of the data on another server so deleting the existing tapes and starting from scratch is not a problem. Besides I'm using a different backup program anyways. I inventoried all the tapes, but if I attempt to start a backup, I just get errors.

Error                  : e0000f16 - The operation failed to acquire the minimum number of drives and media needed.
That's when I try to run a backup.

This is if I try to catalog
Error             : 800706be - 0x800706be (2147944126)
For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-32775-1726
In which the link takes me to page not found/available on symantecs website.

This is if I try to erase a library:
Error category    : Other ErrorsError             : 80070057 - One or more arguments are invalid

 It's been years since I run a backup system like this. I was back on veritas backup with a standard single tape drive which had to be swapped out daily. Is there a really well written tutorial on getting this configured from scratch that I could try?

Thanks in advance!
