Re: hp sureshot 220 ultrium library problem

Dear Raja,
You need to connect the tape drive and library controller to a dedicated SCSI HBA which must be Ultra-2 wide SCSI. Check you library is the low voltage differential version. There are high voltage differential SCSI models. The drive and controller are marked as LVDS or HVDS. You need to download the HP Ultrium driver for W2K from the HP website.
Although Windows 2000 does have a primitive media manager you really should consider a backup solution such as CA ARCServer, Veritas Backup Exec, Legato Networker or HP Omniback II (now called HP Openview Data Protector).
Use HP Library and Tape Tools to test the library.
