DAT 40I

I have an nt 4.0 server with a dat 40i. The driver says it is not started. Although it seems to work with the HP software. I cannot get it to work with vertas exec. I think it is because the driver is not started. I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no use. It may be somthing simple I am missing, but I cannot figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: DAT 40I

Hello Tim,
- try to operate drive from NT backup utility. If it will work I guess veritas backup should be checked;
- install HP Library and Tape Tools ( http://www.hp.com/cposupport/information_storage/support_doc/lpg50128.html ) and see what it will tell you about this drive. Run tests, analyze device, upgrade its firmware;
- I feel driver may not be started because it is not needed - dat40i device was not discovered by your system - check SCSI controller, cables, termination, SCSI Ids (no conflicts, remove other devices off the bus to check)

NT backup will erase the tape but it will not backup to it. It says there is a hardware problem. I will download the tape tools and check my scsi chain. Thanks for the info. I will let you know how it goes.
