sure storage only backing up on one tape

Hi,
I have a surestorage dlt library 40GBx6. I am using ntbackup with windows 2003 server. the tape library can take up to 6 tape cartridges. When i am using backup, only one tape is used. The other tapes are not automatically loaded to continue the backup.
Even if i do it manually , you should remove the first tape to load another. Isn't this should be automatic?

Re: sure storage only backing up on one tape

You need to install and configure the "removable storage" component of Windows. This is the software that handles tape libraries and autoloaders.

I never thought it worked all that well, though. I have OV Data Protector running here, and it seems to work very well.

Cheers,
Vince
