OBDR and HP DL580G5 Server


I want to configure OBDR in my environment. I have backup server HP DL580 G4 with Data Protector Express 4.0 installed on it, SC11Xe HBA and HP 1/8 G2 Ultrium 920 Tape Autoloader – LTO3. When I choose F8 during boot process, access configuration utility for SC11Xe HBA and choose first configuration option:

1. Tape-based One Button Disaster Recovery (OBDR)

I get this message:

comatible tape drives found

... no compatible tape drives were found!
Press any key to continue...

What is the problem.

Best regards.
