DL891 mini library

I have a DL891 mini library connected to a Compaq 8500R running W2K3.

If I look in device manager both the Tape Drive and library are listed as working, however the hp L&TT states the following. When looking a the DEC TL800

L&TT could not identify the correct NT miniport driver to use for access to this device.

The L&TT seems to have no problem with the DEC TZ89 device.

When I try and do a large windows backup that will use multiple tapes the backups fails due to the library not loading a tape.

If the backup is small enough to fit on one tape there is no problem. It loads the first tape and completes the backup.

Opps Should read TL891 NOT DL

OK sorted that bit out by turning off RSM
Now how ever when I try and update the firmware the L&TT freezes.

I need this update, Firmware rev '0514' is out-of-date for 'TL800 (C) DEC' as of Fri Jan 17 19:00:00 2003; update to rev '0525'.

But I cant find the a direct download.

Re: DL891 mini library

Vincent thanks for that but I am looking for the library firmware as being stated by the L&TT after running a device analysis against the library (TL800(C) DEC) device.

Please see attached doc.

Re: DL891 mini library

L&TT will download the F/W for the library and/or drives by itself. Let it fetch the file and store it locally. Then you update the library later.

Rick,

The problem is L&TT is freezing up and not finding the files.

Re: DL891 mini library


Hi,

I'm having exactly the same problem as Roy. However, I am running the correct firmware and have recently had both new controllers installed, new tape drive, but still no joy.

I am running networker 7.2 on a wn2k server (upgraded from NT4)

Any ideas would be most appreciated.

Let me know if you get any joy with this and I will do like wise running around trying to find a serial cable at the moment. Do you know what sort of cable I might need? Been trying to sort this out for over a week now, I really canâ t spare the time.

Re: DL891 mini library

Roy,

It should have come with your library. It's just a male to female cable (5 pins above, 4 below)

I've been working on this for over a week now and am starting to loose patience.

I'm currently in correspondance with Legato networker support regarding the problem, but aren't holding out much hope.

Re: DL891 mini library

Something in a box now thereâ s a novelty my boss will keep buying second hand, No support, no history, and usually no software or manuals. So guess what no cable. Just hope a standard one will do the job or Iâ m stuffed again.

When did you start getting this problem?

As soon as I tried to install it. It has never worked in this config.

Re: DL891 mini library

No joy,can't even find a serial cable in this place. But going by what you say the FW might not even be the problem.
