VLS 6653 drives on W2k3 x64

I've got a VLS 6653 and I need to get the drivers for Win2003x64 for the drives it's presenting. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Dont know what exactly you are looking for.

The Command view VLS is embedded in the VLS itself, just put the IP in the browser and you are good to go.

If you are emulating an MSL G3 library from the VLS and presenting it to a server, you will need the drivers for that library.(G3= MSL2024, 4048 and 8096).

None of the other libraries emulated need seperate drivers on host.

Hope I answered all your questions.

You could use the following link to download and install the drivers ::
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/tape/smartcomp/HPStorageWorksTapeDrivers.zip

This utility will automatically install the SCSI, SAS and USB drivers for HP StorageWorks Ultrium and DAT tape drives, tape autoloaders, and tape libraries for systems running Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Microsoft Windows XP, and Microsoft Windows Vista.

Thanks! I downloaded the drivers and told it to install just the LTO drivers- now the system recognizes them as actual tape drives.
