Re: EML 103e driver

HP does not provide a Windows driver for the EML libraries. All of the backup applications that HP recommends use their own drivers or the NT Miniport pass through SCSI driver.

Windows asks for a driver because it wants to use NTBackup with the library but NTBackup is not recommended with any LTO libraries.

Re: EML 103e driver

Yes I should have said that in my reply. "Unknown Medium Changer" is normal and Data Protector works just fine with that configuration.

That is exactly how my system is set up DP using it's own drivers and Windows reports the changer as "Unknown".

Re: EML 103e driver

If the library shows in device manager as an unknown medium changer you can also check regedit HKLM->Hardware->Devicemap->SCSI and make certain it is showing there.

If the library shows everywhere then check to make certain that RSM isn't running.

After that I'm not certain what the problem is you might need to ask in the DP forum.
