hp esxi 4, win2k3 r2 sp2, Ultrium 232 and DP express u1 extremely slow and never backed up.

I have a setup of an HP ML350G6 with an HP Ultrium 232 tape drive connected via a HP SC11Xe HBA.
The server is running vmware esxi 4.0 and the vm I am running is on a Microsoft Windows 2003r2 sp2 with exchange 2003 and I would like to backup this server using dataprotector express 4.0 u1. I have loaded hpl&tt and the server detects the tape as ultrium 1-scsi. However when I try to backup it seems like it takes forever to recognize the media which is a 200gb ultrium 2 tape and has never worked. Any advice on how to sort this out will be appreciated. Thanks. Have attached the L&tt tape logs.

Made a mistake reposting it in this section. Will move this to the tape section.
