MSL4048

I have installed a HP MSL4048. Connected via fibre (port A) to a Windows 2003 R2 server. My problem is that the tape library is not showing in device manager. I must be missing some software that installs the MSL4048. Does anybody have a link. Also I'm not to sure on the address to give the fibre NIC to see the tape library

Hardware details

MSL4048
DL360 running windows 2003
Fibre NIC NC510f 10GB

Thanks for any help

Re: MSL4048

You have connected the MSL4048 to the NC510f?

The MSL has a fiber(=optical) interface that talks Fibre Channel protocol.

The NC510f is a 10 GigaBit LAN adapter with a fiber(=optical) interface - it is not a Fibre Channel adapter.

Although both use optical interfaces, the layer 1 signalling and higher level protocols are completely different - that will NEVER work.

Re: MSL4048

Thanks Uwe

Do you know which HBA is needed. In the instructions it states a 2Gb or a 4Gb channel HBA is needed. Don't suppose you know some model numbers that are compatible.

Thanks

Re: MSL4048

Alan,
which 'generation' number is the DL360?
Does it have PCI-X or PCI-e slots?
