HP VS80 DLT drive not visible


we recently bought a HP VS80 DLT drive.
We have the problem that we don't see the drive in Windows 2003 server device manager nor in Veritas backup exec.

I can see the drive in my scsi bios and its configured like it should.

Anyone knows if i'm doing something wrong?

We had the same problem here. Using a different SCSI adapter solved the problem. Changing settings on the controller itself did not help at all, but it would not hurt to try that first i guess.

Don't change a working configuration

Yes. You where right. It was the HBA.

I replaced it by a new one and the unit worked fine.

Thank you for your reply.
