HP StorageWorks DAT Tape Driver Installer 2.3.1

Hi,

I have installed Windows Server 2003 R2 and SQL 2000 SP4 on HP Proliant ML350.
Installed the DAT Tape Driver ver 2.3.1.
NTBACKUP is working properly and can backup to DAT tape.

But tape backup from SQL Enterprise Manager cannot find the tape0 device.

EXEC xp_get_tape_devices returns a blank.

I have also tried on another server, using Ultrium LTO and SQL 2005. Same problem.

Any advise.
Thanks.

No, I am using the Enterprise Manager, right-click the database, and select backup database. The destination: Tape is not highlighted.

Further check shows that EXEC xp_get_tape_devices returns a blank, instead of \\.\tape0.

NTBackup is working fine.
Thanks.
