MSL2024 FC LTO-5 drive and DP 6.10 -> cannot communicate with control device

 

Hi!

 

I'm trying to configure an MSL2024 library (fibrechannel attached with LTO-5 drive) to an server running Data Protector 6.10. Windows 2008 R2 is installed on the server.

 

Windows driver are disabled for the robotic device (but enabled for the tape drive).

I have defined to library using the "raw" scsi-path by browsing the device in DP.

There are no other software accessing the robotic device.

I have used the devbra -dev utility and everything looks fine.

I have tested direct connect to the server and via SAN switch.

 

Regardless I get the following error message when trying Barcode Scan:

bcksth1.bevakningstjanst.com : scsi4:0:4:1

Cannot open exchanger control device ([5] Access is denied. )

 

C:\Program Files\OmniBack\bin>devbra -dev

Any hints?
