ESL Tape Library and LTO5 drives

I have just installed 4 LTO5 tape drives into my esl library.  Command view see's them fine, they are seen and zoned onto the fabric, but I cannot get my windows servers to see them .. including the cell manager.  Partitions were able to successfull extend to add.

 

Has anyone seen this before?

 

thanks,

 Suzanne

Re: ESL Tape Library and LTO5 drives

Wild guess, but have you used Command View to ensure that the firmware of the library/robot/controller matches the firmware of the drives?

 

Have you gone into Windows Device Mangler and rediscovered HW to force Windows to look for the new drives?
