drivers for MSL5000 and MSL6000 LIBRARY

Hello,
Where can I get drivers for MSL5000 and MSL6000 LIBRARY? Which are connected to DL580 servers? The Operating System installed on the servers is Windows 2003 server.

Regards,
Keshav.

You don't really need drivers for the library, just for the HBA it's connected to. There are some INF files so Windows can assign a name and a category to these devices and they no longer appear as Unknown Device:

Make sure that you consult or check for Backup software vendor recommendation for drivers

For Symantec use a utility called Tapeinst.exe which will install Symantec recommended Drivers
