MSL5030 + windows 2003 Server

I have connected a MSL5030 through fibre channel (HSV110). When I install W2K Server on a proliant DL580 I can see the library and the tape drives. When I install windows 2003 Server there is no library and no tape drive in the device manager. The drivers are all installed and I can present or unpresent a vdisk without a problem.
Has anyone the same problem?

Cristoph,
can you give further detail of your configuration?
Does the library have a NSR (Network Storage Router)?
Is the library connected to a SAN Switch?
Is zoning implemented?

Let us know

The library has a NSR E1200 and is connected to the SAN Switch where zoning is implemented. In the map I see the WWN of the fibre channel card of the server.

OK Cristoph,
read this document:

http://h200005.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/lpg29075/lpg29075.pdf

and read also the thread named "MSL50 Adding Extra Tape Drive" of this forum, just few rows below yours. It contains some tips.

Good luck
Claudio

Christoph,

the main difference between w2k and w2k3 is that windows 2003 need CCl on lun 0 to scan the rest of the library.

You need to create a map for Windows environment following these rules:
lun0 NSR controller
lun1 robotic controller of MSL5030
lun2 first drive
lun3 second drive......
