assigning a drive letter to MSL5000

hi there

is it possible to assign a drive letter to MSL5000 ? for example to F:\

just like when we're assigning a drive letter to USB-HDD ?

i'm using windows 2000 server and SQL2000 server,

i would like to backup my database using SQL into this MSL.

thx

Re: assigning a drive letter to MSL5000

Hello,

there is no way to assign a tape drive a drive letter. Access to this is sequential, not random like a disk drive.

If you want to backup you SQL to this tape, use the embedded backup of the SQL Enterprise Manager.
