Dear Experts,

I have Vmware esxi4.1 installed and I'm trying to add HP autoloader (msl2024 connected to Esxi server via SAS port) to my VM which has Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R3 installed and Live updated.
In storage adapter of VMhost, I can see the the controller that has the Tape is identified.

As it is mentioned in here , the Runtime Name of my tape device is  <vmhba2:C0:T0:L0>. But I'm actually not sure which virtual device node to choose and just set 1:1.
Unfortunately, the Tape drive autoloader is still offline in my Symantec Backup Exec software even after installing Symantec Tape driver.

Could you let me know which path is wrong ?
And please brief me how can I determine which virtual node I have to set ?

Thanks in advance
