a DLT 2000 ???

These are nearly as old as me....

If your using HP-UX, you can check as to whether the hardware is recognised by the system:

# ioscan -fn

If it is, try first some generic types of backups like tar to make sure the drive is working. Are you using the correct type of tape?
Anyone for a Mutiny ?

Hello,

What tapes are you using? Newer DLT4 tapes (black) are not compatible to a DLT2000. You must use a DLT3 tape, grey in colour.

HTH,
