Dell LTO 3 external tape does not read media
Posted on 2014-09-07
I configured a Dell LTO 3 external Powervault 110T on a workstation with Windows 2003r2 service pack2. Also, configured is a SCSI Adaptec 29160. The drivers are installed and can see the scsi and dell Ultrium in device manager.
I am using NT Backup to retrieve the media. When restoring I can see the name of the tape but no media is present. I select catalog and it starts to mount then it stops responding, saying tape is use. Then the tape is ejected from the Dell powervault 110T. I need to retrieve this media asap.. Thanks.
