Backup Exec 12.5 issue with HP Storageworks Ultrium 448 SAS
Posted on 2012-12-27
I have a SBS 2008 server with HP Storageworks Ultrium 448 SAS, and Backup Exec 12.5. The issue is that when the backup job starts - it says queued and stays like that for ages. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the backup tape using Symantec drivers - same thing. Tried newest HP driver - same thing. Tried the driver suggested from Microsoft updates - same issue. The only strange thing that I noticed is that after every install, the device shows in Backup exec that it is in use. I tested the device with HP storageworks and library tools - it is visible, and does not report any issues.
What can be the problem with that device, and is it possible for some reason the Backup Exec to be broken ?
