ESL322 2003 x64 medium changer driver

Could anyone provide a Medium changer driver for an ESL322 (on a Win2003 x64 server) - MS DPM requires this

Greets Colin,

HP does not supply a separate Medium Changer driver for the ESL libraries. HP depends on the backup software vendor to control the library. NetBackup, Data Protector, BackupExec, ArcServe, TSM all come with library support built in.

Does DPM have it's own built-in backup software ? (not NTbackup...)

Hi Eric
Thanks for the response....not what we were hoping for....Microsoft have given this reply: MS depend on the IHVs to provide the relevant drivers required for these devices, and we donâ t develop them in-house.

There's some talk of HP & MS sorting out the stalemate, but it looks like we've got to abandon MS DPM...
Regards
Colin

There is not realy a need for a driver for the robot, all the drive do is a command passthough and a cosmetic function(showing you a specific name and icon. using the default from Microsoft just work fine.

That is totally incorrect statement. I had a multitude of issues with Microsoft DPM and the ESL e series robot. The issue was only fixed when I installed this driver.
