1/8 G2 Autoloader 448 Drive not being detected as an autoloader

I am running Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 with a Smart Array 6i running my hard drives and a Smary Array 642 running my tape drive.

I can see the tape drive in the post and windows detects it as a Hewlett Packarad LTO Ultrium 2 Drive, however when i open backup exec 11 or 12 it only shows a single drive... am i missing the plot have spent several hours downloading and reloading drivers both HP and Symantec but not got anywhere

The smart array do not support libraries, and in this case, if I remember well, you do not see the robot because it should be mapped as a lun of the scsi id of the drive. So you need to use a dedicated HBA, and have the LUN support active (it is active by default on all the HBA). Smartarray also do not scan for LUNS.
