LTO 448 SAS Internal drive Issue


I use a HP Proliant ML350 G5 server. It came with an inbuilt Smart Array E200I RAID controller for the hard disks. I have just purchased an HP Ultrium 448 SAS internal tape drive. The tape drive is connected to the server using the HP SC44GE HBA. The server runs Windows 2003 Standard Edition SP2.

My problem is that although the drive and the HBA are installed and can be seen in the device manager, the tape drive is not being displayed in My Computer. The tape drive is even being recognised by the NovaBackup Server edition software.

I have gone through the forums but have not been able to pinpoint a solution for this particular problem. Could anyone please let me how to get the tape drive to be displayed in My Computer?

Re: LTO 448 SAS Internal drive Issue

you will only see this drive on device manager.

Right click on "my PC" >>> manage >>> device manager.
