Steps to install drivers for a tape drive.

Hello forum,


I am trying to get the steps together to install a scalar i40 tapedrive to my DL 380 g4 Server.
The server is running Windows server 2003 standard server 32 Bit.

Here is what was done,
- The riser card replaced from PCI X to PCI Express.
- The SAS Controller installed to be connected to the Scalar i40 Tape Drive

Im having difficulties locating the exect driver for the riser card and sas controller.
I did installed some drivers after digging around the HP driver sites,

Now I am showing the followings in device manager,

  • Medium changers - Quantum Scalar i40-i80 Tape Drive
  • SCSI - RAID Controller - LSI Adapter, SAS 3000
                     - Smart Array 6i
  • Tape Drives - Hewlett Packard LTO Ultrium -5 drive

    Why is the tape drive shown as Hewlett Packard LTO Ultrium-d drive ?
    Does this look ok? The device configuration? if some one has links to the drivers I would apperciate it!
    Thank you!
