Server 2008 R2 Hanging at Startup
Posted on 2014-12-11
I recently setup a server for running backup exec 2014. I performed a fresh install of Server 2008 R2 x64. After the install, I downloaded and installed the drivers for the Adaptec SCSI card I needed to Connect to the Quantum DLT v4 Tape library. I then Installed the latest Driver I could find for the Tape Library.
After that I checked the Device manager to make sure that all the drivers showing a good.
I then Installed Backup Exec 2014 successfully.
After the Installation I went to the Storage tab and chose to Inventory and Catalog option so that I could access the contents of the tapes that are on the Tape Library.
Everything was running smoothly until I chose to inventory the Tape library. After I did this, I left it to run for little while to complete the task.
When I came back the Server was completely Hung; so I rebooted the Server to see if it would boot backup, but now it hangs on the Screen that says Applying Computers settings. I can boot into safe mode, so I'm assuming it might be a driver conflict issue?
Not totally sure, but would appreciate any input.
