Re: HP storageworks dat40

There is no configuration that can be stored in a DAT40, the only way to reset it is to power cycle the tape unit for at least 1 minutes.
If the unit is internal and hooked in a proliant, you should power down the server and wait a few minutes.
Doing this, when you reboot the unit, it will go through a device self test and then it will have all scsi command pending reset ( like reservation or compression etc...)

Re: HP storageworks dat40

Hi,

Could you explain exactly what your problem is please ?

Do you need to reload the driver in Windows ?

Is the tape drive not being recognised by Windows or a backup application ??

Cheers,

Rob
