TS3200 Tape library not working with IBM x3650 m3 and host connectivity manager

Hi Experts,

I have a Ts3200 tape drive on IBM X3650 M3 server with windows 2003 R2 Standard x64 Edition sp2.

This tape drive was initially configured by someone else so I dont exactly understand the process.

It is a fibre connection connected directly with the server, I had a problem with the drive and I tried to reinstall the driver when I lost a fibre connection in Host connectivity manager.

it comes up with a localhost down "failed to connect to agent on host localhost" hence I cannot see tape device indevice manager either.
